There is a new Author & Punisher track and it is a-mayz-in-guh. Tristan Shone and his merry band of machines bring more death industrial madness and I love it so much. Check out “Callous and Hoof” below. Continue reading

When last we left our hero, Author & Punisher had announced the release of his next album titled Women & Children. The solo indoomstrial project, featuring instrument manufacturer Tristan Shone, has become a constant in my every day listening and I hope his music has effected many others the way it has me.
Tristan, apparently, has no remorse for his audience… Continue reading
I have been fascinated by musician Tristan Shone ever since I first saw a video of him utilizing his “instrument” to create a style of music that befuddled me, effectively called Author & Punisher. The man is a fucking genius, that’s all you need to know. If Author & Punisher‘s last album Ursus Americanus wasn’t enough for you, prepare yourself because April will see the release of Tristan’s follow up, Women & Children.
Last year saw the release of the mind-expanding Ursus Americanus from one-man-machine Author & Punisher. This year will see Author & Punisher trek across 14 cities in support of Ursus Americanus. If you are anywhere in the vicinity of any of these dates, go and see this single-handed madness. You can check out the dates below. Continue reading

Check out the scheduled dates and a track from their latest record, Ecstatic Trance, below.
An’ lemme jus’ say: Fuck December 21st in it’s ass. Ain’t no ‘pocalypse, mutha’ fuckas.
Man, there were way to many good albums released this year. I listened to as many as I could but there were some that I just couldn’t get to. There are also some that I listened to, just not enough for them to make my final list. I can’t let this slide, however and I want to give a shout out to new releases by Marty Friedman, The Mars Volta, Birds In Row, Code Orange Kids, Downfall Of Gaia and Krallice. I really wish I could have settled down to check these albums out in full, but I just couldn’t get down to do it.
Before we get to my actual list I would like to thank each and every one of you readers. Without you, I honestly probably would have given this up a long time ago. Sure, on this site I give my opinion on music, but it is really you guys/gals that count. I don’t know how I could repay you all for visiting American Aftermath these past two years. You have really made it worth while. Even the haters who talked shit, I appreciate you fucks also.
One-man industrialized freakdub doom project Author & Punisher, who I talked to back in March, has just released its new music video. The video is for the track “Terrorbird” which comes off of Author & Punisher‘s latest release Ursus Americanus which is available now via Seventh Rule Records. The video is a strange one and, to quote MetalSucks, kinda works as a short film. Not sure what else I can say about it, so just check out the video below. Enjoy.
