About this album

Artist: Choronzon
Producer: The Foamin’ Bros.
Writer: P. Emerson Williams

P. Emerson Williams has to do everything the hard way. A more career minded artist would have seized on the opportunity afforded being signed to Nocturnal Art Productions and its association with Samoth of the mighty Emperor, touring and considering the comfort of the audience. Instead Mr. Williams played with his own sanity, crossing the Abyss and disappeared for several years.

During this time he recorded two Choronzon albums, both of which were rejected by NAP, Samoth not seeing any audience sick enough to be able to take their deliberately grating harshness. The first, a Paean to Lilith, queen of the succubae and lover and protector of P. Emerson Williams, disappeared mysteriously. The tracks which were mixed to DAT, were unaccountably replaced with white noise, underneath which could be discerned gibbering and laughter. The second, was “Larvae”.

“Era Vulgaris”, the third from that time is a thrashing testament to torture, sprang fully formed over the span of a week out of Mr. Williams’ unconscious. The sound goes back to the harsh, electronic blackness of the original Choronzon demo; a sound with no consideration towards commercial potential.

Following being dropped from NAP, P. Emerson lived on the streets among homeless, criminals and drug addicts, gaining much insight on the futility of the lives of the average.
