BLOOD OF THE BLACK OWL'S "WARmth" 2xCD NOW OFFICIALLY RELEASED EXCLUSIVELY THROUGH GLASS THROAT RECORDINGS.




Greetings folks,
First, a warm and beautiful Samhain to you all. I'm excited to announce that the "WARmth" 2xCD with patch is now available for purchase within the Glass Throat Bandcamp store. This item will not be made available anywhere else.

I also wanted to take a moment and thank all the folks who have purchased pre-sale orders. I was truly blown away by the supportive response and find myself quite overwhelmed by the amount of sleeves and patches I must produce initially for this release! The first wave of orders shipped out today and I'm diligently working hard to see the second wave shipped ASAP! All pre-sale orders of course are priority. I imagine the domestic orders will continue to ship out through the coming week, while the remaining European orders will ship out a week from today. Again, I ask for your patience regarding this process as I'm cutting, lacing, hand stuffing and branding each and every "WARmth" personally. I guess in short I wasn't ready for this as I've never offered a "pre-sale" before. Well, I can only hope you will all find the wait worthy of your time and funds. If there are any questions regarding your orders currently, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Other than that, In just an hour or so I will begin preparations for a C.o.t.R.T. ritual performance to commence at 12:00am. I'm thrilled to be offering this spirit for my ancestors and look forward to performing a piece from the forthcoming CotRT collection.

In other news, my Iberian brothers in Arnica just sent me the very first movements towards a collaborative collection. Perhaps I shouldn't mention this just yet? However I'm simply to damn excited to not! So blown away and I'm deeply thankful and humbled to be working with such authentic folk. An true honor.

Be well everyone and again, have a beautiful night under a veil so thin.
WARmth,
-Chet W. Scott

PRE-SALE for BLOOD OF THE BLACK OWL'S "WARmth" 2xCD.


Hey folks,
I'm accepting pre-orders now for the exclusive 2xCD format of "WARmth" if interested. All orders placed will not ship out until Samhain. However those whom place an order now will be the first to receive this item which is made to order.
________________________


This 2xCD format will feature the same unmastered recordings as the digital release most of you already have. I just kinda like it the way it is. (((d-_-b)))

Regarding this artifact, I'm excited to offer a more appropriate "neolithic" kind of packaging, other than the standard oversized deluxe gatefold Glass Throat Recordings is known for. A packaging I'm tediously hand crafting myself. So with that said, the 2xCD release of "WARmth" will be MADE TO ORDER, so I would ask for your patience folks towards receiving it. I've already begun this process so I may be better prepared for the initial order frenzy I'm gratefully expecting upon release.

Please take into consideration, every hide is unique in color variants, texture and density. So with that said, each sleeve and patch received is uniquely your own and takes the branding process differently with every burn! 

The discs are professionally pressed and enclosed within said hand cut tooled, branded and sewn Elk and or Bisson hide sleeve(s). Imagine and with all do respect, a medicine pouch of sorts.

Each sleeve contains the following items:

1. One photographic informative insert.
2. Two professionally pressed compact discs.
3. One hand branded (burned) Elk and or Bison patch with the sigil that coincides within the intent of "WARmth."

Thanks for your time and support,
Be well,
-Chet W. Scott

AN ARTICLE COURTESY OF BRIAN KRASMAN

I just wanted to take a moment and thank Brian Krasman for the deeply supportive article he wrote regarding the recent release of Blood of the Black Owl's "WARmth". I'm truly grateful and tremendously honored to have received such time and interest. If perhaps those of you are interested and would like to read his words, you may find them here.

Also I received notice that the discs have been shipped from the plant and the iron has been forged. With that said, we are looking good now for an official Samhain physical release of Blood of the Black Owl's "WARmth".

More to come folks and thanks for your continued interest and support.
Be well,

COMING OCTOBER 31ST, MMXV "WARmth" SPECIAL EDITION CD!

***AN UPDATE REGARDING THE PHYSICAL ARTIFACT OF BLOOD OF THE BLACK OWL'S "WARmth"***

Thanks to the unbelievable support of "WARmth" digital sales thus far, I have decided to release the collection on 2xCD due to its program length through my own Glass Throat Recordings (GTR-024). I'm shooting for an October 31st release date providing all runs smoothly with the pressing and crafting of said project. The 2xCD format will feature the same unmastered recordings as the digital release most of you already have. I just kinda like it the way it is. (((d-_-b)))

Regarding this artifact, I'm excited to offer a more appropriate kind of packaging, other than the standard oversized deluxe gatefold Glass Throat Recordings is known for. A packaging I'm tediously hand crafting myself. So with that said, the 2xCD release of "WARmth" will be MADE TO ORDER, so I would ask for your patience folks towards receiving it. I've already begun this process so I may be prepared for the initial order frenzy I'm gratefully expecting upon release.

The discs will be professionally pressed and enclosed within a hand cut tooled and sewn Elk and or Bisson hide sleeve(s). Imagine and with all do respect, a medicine pouch of sorts. Here are some photos of the beginning stages of this process.




Each sleeve will have a professionally printed double sided card insert, with information and a photograph of the ritual sculpture that visually conveys the intent of this collection. The very same photograph currently used for the digital release of "WARmth." The most exciting aspect of this crafting will be the adornment of a custom branding upon the cover of every sleeve. Said iron branding will feature a personal sigil of my own craft, which also coincides with the deepening intent of the "WARmth" collection. More details and pics once the iron has been forged and ready for use.

With the purchase of every CD format of this release, you will receive an automatic free lossless digital download via the Glass Throat Recordings Bandcamp store.

***PLEASE NOTE***
This special edition 2xCD format of "WARmth" will be made available exclusively through Glass Throat Recordings ONLY!
***No trades, no distribution!***   

I am currently seeking an artist for an original T-Shirt/merchandise design to coincide with the release of "WARmth" as well. Will certainly keep you posted.

Thank you folks for your time and interest. More information regarding this release will be posted right here in the coming weeks.

Be well,
-Chet W. Scott

THE 5TH FULL LENGTH BLOOD OF THE BLACK OWL COLLECTION ENTITLED "WARmth" IS NOW AVAILABLE!



Folks, it has been a very long time since I've had anything to share. As some of you may already know, I have a new Blood of the Black Owl collection that was officially released (digitally) through my own Glass Throat Recordings on August, 13th MMXV. The collection is entitled "WARmth" and it can be purchased exclusively right here.

After minimal interest from a handful of European labels, I've decided to move on from the efforts of seeing this collection ever released as an actual physical artifact. However, I'd like to take a moment and thank those labels for their time, interest and reassurance towards the work offered within this collection. I'm humbled and honored to have had such correspondence as I deeply respect them all.

A special thank you to my friend Dean Berry for taking the time and truly believing in "WARmth." Through his amazing connections, he inspired and took things upon himself to see that this collection was indeed shared through a physical artifact. His champion means more to me than he'll ever know.

May I also take a moment to thank those of you thus far, whom have shared their personal comments and reviews of "WARmth." I've been left speechless to think the medicine I've offered within this collection, has found an authentic connection within you. Feel free to read them here.

I guess that is about it for now. As always, thank you for taking the time to read this and support the latest collection of mine entitled "WARmth."
Be well,
-Chet W. Scott

ADDRESSING TECH ISSUES & NEW DISTRIBUTION FOR GLASS THROAT...FINALLY!



I'm excited to announce a new distribution relationship with Germany's Dark Vinyl Records. Honestly, in recent years, I've felt labels, distributors and mail-orders have turned their backs and in some cases, blatantly ignored the artists and releases of Glass Throat Recordings.

With that said, I'm honored and tremendously humbled to say that Glass Throat Recordings first and foremost, has been built upon the folk and not the pompostic industry. Throughout these said years, it has been the people's word of mouth that have kept Glass Throat Recordings authentic and humble. I'm deeply in debt to you all for becoming such a strong foundation for the spirit of this vision. Trust me there have been many times I've been ready to throw in the towel!

So, having DV reach out with such enthusiasm and support truly helped to rekindled that particular flame once again. The German underground art and music communities throughout the years, regarding various aspects and levels of the industry, have been brilliantly supportive of my own sounds and the releases of GTR. Once again, DV continues to show this respect. Thank you Uwe and company as I'm so honored to have it.

ON A DIFFERENT NOTE, I've been noticing, as I know YOU ALL have been receiving our older posts being resent to my subscribers. I have no idea as to why this has been occurring. They are random and usually posts from a couple years ago. I've inquired regarding the matter with blogger and to no avail. So, I'm wondering if any of you out there know of a much better "free blog" to be used as a news format I could move to? Other than FB! Or, perhaps some of you may have some answers as to why this is happening and how to fix it? My apologies to all of you whom have continued to receive e-mails that are outdated. Perhaps some of you deleted your subscriptions cause of it, if not thank you for your patience. 


Well folks, it's been sometime. Really nothing much more to mention as of late regarding music. Perhaps I could bring up a potential release schedule, however I'd really prefer to not jump the gun till things have been truly set in stone. One of which pretains to a potential release for GTR that is ***SO EXCITING*** I just can't believe it. I can only hope you will all feel the same as I do, providing you follow this solo artists career. If so, then it's safe to say you will. :-)

Anyhow, MMXV should be a good year and long over due for Glass Throat Recordings.
Thanks for your time as always folks,
-WARmth,
