Wyrd Words & Effigies Interviews Mirusbella

I was having a dreadful day in the hours before I discovered Mirusbella on YouTube and her gorgeous cover of Darkthrone's Transilvanian Hunger. As I slipped away into the song, life didn't seem so terrible anymore. I may have even smiled. Hailing from Germany, this multi-talented, mystifying artist has been delighting me with her art… Continue reading Wyrd Words & Effigies Interviews Mirusbella

July’s Self-Portraits

Today has not been a good day. If I were in a better frame of mind, I would have much to say about what I thought was a shoddy month of capturing myself. But, as it transpires, I managed to get a fair amount of imagery conjured up. I overuse the word ‘conjured.’ I need… Continue reading July’s Self-Portraits

Midsummer – A New Offering From Cave Mouth

So, midsummer has passed. Do we at Cave Mouth care? Do we fuck. I did write the lyric 'witches, witches it's midsummer, cover yourselves in blood and flowers' on midsummer day when I took the portrait we've used as the song art. But I wrote the rest of the song, recorded the vocals, and Meghan… Continue reading Midsummer – A New Offering From Cave Mouth

An Interview With Beyond Man

This interview was originally posted on A Hex On Your Head, but I figured it could do with a share here too, as I know some of my wolf pack will appreciate it. Well, isn’t this fucking something! We got Beyond Man for you. A few weeks ago, I threw an email at Meghan with… Continue reading An Interview With Beyond Man

Your Darkness Is Welcome Here

What you are about to read is profound. Extremely fucking profound. It’s probably one of the most profound pieces of writing I’ve read in my 34 (I’m not 35 in September, you are) years. I came across it while reading Creatrix: She Who Makes by Lucy H Pearce. It’s written by a lady called Dawn Conlan-Grant. I’ve tried to… Continue reading Your Darkness Is Welcome Here

Weile Weile Waile – New Song From Cave Mouth & The Witches Speak For The First Time

Cave Mouth Cover Weile Weile Waile I must say, it did feel fitting that Cave Mouth’s first cover was an Irish murder ballad featuring the tale of an old woman in the woods who does abhorrent things with a long, sharp penknife. Listen out for the fiddle at the end. It’s my favourite part. Cave… Continue reading Weile Weile Waile – New Song From Cave Mouth & The Witches Speak For The First Time

A Pack To Howl With

I've been feeling abysmal since early afternoon. It felt like death was waiting with his door open. That might sound like I'm overly dramatic, but for about two hours, I felt sick, so sick. I left a friend a voice message, and I broke down. I couldn't not cry. And my stomach, my god-forsaken stomach,… Continue reading A Pack To Howl With

People Of The Sea Ice – My Upcoming Book

I would like to introduce you to the cover of my upcoming poetry collection, People of the Sea Ice. The image is c.1900s-1910s and was photographed by Whitney's Photographic Studio (established in 1904). This collection is the culmination of many months of hard work. It's been the most challenging collection to write to date, as… Continue reading People Of The Sea Ice – My Upcoming Book

What Wyrd Shit Is She Up To Now?

Well met, friends. Hope you're all having a better week than me. I haven't been feeling good for a while now. It like I have the flu that can't decide if it wants to be full-on flu or not, so it's just toying with me. As a result, my concentration is buggered, and I'm not… Continue reading What Wyrd Shit Is She Up To Now?

The Woods Do Not Want Us Here – New Song From Cave Mouth

If you're wondering why I don't post as much music here as I used to, it's because I have, along with my Sister Shaman and bandmate Meghan Wood (AKA Crown Of Asteria - check her out), a blog called A Hex On Your Head where we share music most days. Psst…between you and me, there's… Continue reading The Woods Do Not Want Us Here – New Song From Cave Mouth
