The USA based ambient/industrial, neo-folk solo act None - a tribute to all the divine - was founded in 2015 by musician and songwriter Nicholas Mendiola (Ex-Plague Phalanx, Thangorodrim and Awakened Abyss). For Nicholas, None is the deity of his creation and the eternal version of himself. As he had stated for the interview (webzine From Corners Unknown), the purpose and mission of his contemporary life were to discover himself as the true voice and host that None speaks through - and to leave the word and mark of None upon the world not only to affect other present beings of the earth and multiverse but to leave traces for future lives to again discover their true identity.

None's music will be presented on the radio show [Dark] UNKNOWN this Thursday, 3 June at 22.00 [CEST] on Terra Relicta radio.

THIEF - Reveals Details Of A Forthcoming Album And Release The First Video

Thief unveiled a deadly video for the track "Apple Eaters" as the first single taken from their forthcoming album The 16 Deaths Of My Master, which is slated for release on 27 August. The Californian experimental electronic project of multi-instrumentalist Dylan Neal is also revealing cover art, tracklist, and further details of the new full-length.

Thief comments: "The title 'Apple Eaters' is taken from a line in J.D. Salinger's short story 'Teddy' and the song is a vision of the world through the extreme lens of a lonely spiritual misanthrope in a deceptively shifting time signature", explains mastermind Dylan Neal. "The hitwoman in the video is searching for someone or something, but her view of the world is colored by the lens that she is using. The strange horrors that she encounters end up being too much for her to bear. Why did she see those things? What did they mean to her? What does she use to clean her gun?"

Dylan Neal first made himself a name as a musician by playing the hammered dulcimer in San Francisco-based experimental black metal outfit Botanist from whom he recruited Thief live-drummer Robert Chiang. Although Dylan officially parted ways amicably from his former bandmates, he still contributed from the background as a "silent" member – for example by writing the dulcimer and bass parts for the Botanist album The Shape Of He To Come. This continued relationship is also beautifully demonstrated by the Botanist and Thief split album Cicatrix/Diamond Brush, which will be released in parallel and as a companion to The 16 Deaths Of My Master.
Eager to explore his own way, Dylan released Thieves Hymn in D Minor (2016) and Map Of Lost Keys (2019) under the banner of Thief. Although his electronic music is inspired in his own words by such ground-breaking acts as Portishead and Ulver, while critics also found traces of Tool, Nine Inch Nails, and Tears For Fears, Thief accomplished the rare feat to gain recognition and leave an impact on the metal world by scoring features in leading the USA print magazine Decibel among others.

With The 16 Deaths Of My Master, Thief returns in an even heavier incarnation than ever. Watch the "Apple Eaters" video below. Link
