DZOGCHEN

To the metalheads
In the past few months of my abscence I have been diving into new interests and working on an instrumental musical project, Dzogchen. Dzogchen is a departure from what I have done with The Ash and The Red in multiple dimensions: there is a decreased technicality, an ascension in the sound and, truthfully, I have not had to force anything. The influx of ideas has come and is expressed as is.
I am planning on making an announcement on The Ash and The Red myspace page this evening but wanted to inform you first. The news is this is where I am, there are two tracks up now and two tracks currently being recorded.
Please forgive me for not participating and not continuing with you all to your site as of late, I would like to be a bigger part of this again. I hope this is of the littlest inconvenience to you all.
The Dzogchen site is here: www.myspace.com/thedzogchen
I hope you enjoy some of the work and I have CD quality material, complete with label, free and ready to ship out to you all. I am still perfecting my engineering skills and I promise you there is a big difference once this CD hits good speakers.
Thanks to you all.

Sounds great brother. I have been experementing with meditation over the last few months, and this seems like metal music that one could meditate to (especially the title song) which I think is very cool.

We all have kinda let the cob webs get thick on this blog, but hopefully, I will become more inspired here soon to resume blogging.

Hey thanks man. Metal meditation music, that is brilliant, and even a dope like Ken Hawk could use it. I suppose I stumbled into it on accident and had some unexpected success myself, after just being ignorant of what it was and passing it off as another one of "those things".
If you want to start doing some things here, i.e. reviews or possible theories of what exactly riotact666 is, perhaps we could get things stimulated.
Thanks for the support man.

This sounds good. I'll have to get a copy of this. My theory on RiotAct666 is that he's a bot and not a real person. Blabbermouth is so fucking boring that it's not even worth trolling or spamming. Borivoj Krgin has always been a little trouble maker. Even back in the 80's. As for the blog, I'm sorry I haven't been cotributing much to it. Truth is, this and The Metal Pundit is were I would get my political news. I've been busy writting reviews for Metal Pundit as well as other things. Hopefully, the blog can become more active again so we can get all the old readers back before we elect a new president. I guess getting involved with Legions of the Abyss really fucked up both blogs for a time.

Thanks Al. This weekend I will probably be shipping a number of CDs out, and may have to track down your guys' information. I was supposed to get materials and send these out earlier this week, but I got laid. Honest. Wife even said she'd sign sticky notes to everyone explaining it.
I'm only at Blabbermouth once in a while now.
By the way, I'm sorry to hear you didn't like "The Blackening" but your review was damn entertaining.

Al Bundy said...

Thanks. Should I send you an email with my address or message you on MySpace?

ken said...

Send a message to my myspace, i will try and keep track of these better there.

Wow! I didn't know what to expect, but it sounds awesome. Great job Ken.
