The Skinny: Jess and the Ancient Ones, while preparing to join King Diamond on his October/November North American tour as special guests, present a new recording of two exclusive songs to be released on 10″ vinyl only. The title track “Castaneda” is available for streaming just above.
The band’s comments: “‘A path is only a path, and there is no affront, to oneself or to others, in dropping it if that is what your heart tells you… Look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it as many times as you think necessary. Then ask yourself alone, one question – does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn’t, it is of no use.’ Thus spoke Castaneda, and what wise words they are. Written thoughts can sometimes make a profound impact upon others, even though they are rarely found. Music holds the same power. We see our art as a path to eternity’s veil, a place where the notes we play echo in infinite artistic freedom, where we feed our minds and thus draw strength to our mundane lives. It keeps us sane, and throws colors to our personal growth. We are alive once again, and it brings great joy to our hearts, when we transmit our sonic waves into your minds, as well. Hope you all find what you are searching for…”
