well, @Final Destiny (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=228) bought a copy of my 7" EP (http://eversonpoe.bandcamp.com/album/monument-ep), which is pretty awesome! thanks so much, seriously.

i am almost done working on my new album, Primal, i just need to get my vocalist recorded and it'll be finished.
i took things in a slightly different direction, adding more electronic elements while still retaining an organic core. i've been listening to a lot of swans for the last several months, and it definitely had an influence.

right now i'm giving all the money i make through my bandcamp page (http://eversonpoe.bandcamp.com/) to the theater company (http://tympanictheatre.org/) for which i work, doing sound design & original music. the show we're about to put up is insane (it's entirely in the dark) and i've gotten to do so many songs for it...i'm quite excited.

anyway, trying to bump this thread since i've never gotten any responses here, and i think a lot of you ETSers will enjoy my music. i'll post again when the new album is done.

p.s. all of my music is Name Your Price, so if you like it, PLEASE download it. i do not care about making money off of my music, i really just want people to hear and enjoy it.

Julia Pastrana by Everson Poe (http://eversonpoe.bandcamp.com/album/julia-pastrana)


this is the soundtrack for the latest play on which i'm working. we open this weekend, but in the mean-time (or if you don't live in chicago), you can check out the soundtrack.


it features awesome sound design and music by me, and incredible vocal performances from the entire cast.


if you like it, it's pay what you want, starting at just $2, and all of the money goes to Tympanic Theatre Company (http://tympanictheatre.org), which is a 501c3 non-profit where i am a company member.

Listening to "Colossus" right now, sounding great so far!
Is it wrong if the woman's voice reminds a a little to Tori Amos? she sure can sing!
nice guitar work too!, i can tell your Mogwai and post punk influence...

i've lowered the price of my most recent album to only $5 (http://eversonpoe.bandcamp.com/album/primal). that gets you over 71 minutes of music and some incredible artwork!

i've also made my most recent theatre soundtrack, sandalwood, free (though if you spend money on it, it still goes to tympanic, the theatre company for which i do sound/music).

new theater soundtrack! there's some drones, an ambient piece or two, some purposefully corny songs, and a couple things that are in my normal vein.

Taste by Everson Poe (https://eversonpoe.bandcamp.com/album/taste)

any money i would normally get to keep goes to Red Theater (the company putting on the play), a non-profit theater company dedicated to free theater for everyone.

thanks.

the play is based on the true story of the two german guys who got together and one of them killed and ate the other (at his request). in the play, they're american, and it's definitely a bit romanticized, but it's a really good play. lots of unexpected humor and tenderness.

ah, yes, i am familiar with the case i believe. The man wished to have his penis bitten off, and the two planned to eat it together, right?
But instead they had to resort to cutting it off and, oh jesus, bleeding to death from having your penis cut off must be awful.
I am obsessed with strange things like this, and surely i'm thinking of the right case.

Your musical output makes me feel lazy and unaccomplished. I need to set some fucking goals. ;)

Will the B-side be slightly different from cassette to cassette, or do you have a group of tracks picked out for both categories (unreleased / mixtape)?

custom made for each person who gets one! if you want unreleased everson poe stuff, i'll try to tailor it to your taste. if you want a mixtape of other artists, i'll do the same. so each one will be completely unique.

checking out the new album, really liking it. Production is solid, and I love the Cure-ish guitar tone! I'll give it a full listen in a bit on a better system.

really especially like the song Blindfolds

thanks! Blindfolds is definitely my favorite, it gives me that perfect emotional reaction that's a combination good-feeling goosebumps and tears while also making me want to just sexy dance.

new theater score for Sweet Analytics (https://eversonpoe.bandcamp.com/album/sweet-analytics), an adaptation of Faust with a female protagonist that's all about gender politics. it's a really compelling work and i got to make a ton of sound for it. really proud of my efforts.

New Single - Blackthorn (https://eversonpoe.bandcamp.com/track/blackthorn)

https://f4.bcbits.com/img/a0834124570_16.jpg

i wrote & recorded the music & lyrics for this song back in november, and my friend Nina did her incredible vocals a couple weeks ago. this song is extremely close to my heart, as it deals with issues of being trans and feeling stuck, like you can't do anything about it; longing for the transformation that will allow you to be who you are. it's a daily struggle for me and expressing it this way was so cathartic. i hope you enjoy the song and consider buying it to help me donate some money to Center on Halsted (https://www.facebook.com/CenterOnHalsted/), who help support the LGBTQ youth community of chicago (all proceeds for the first 30 days go straight to them).

i made a new song that was born out of my frustration with how many people are turning out to be sexual predators. they need to be held accountable for their actions, and survivors need to be provided with support. all proceeds will go to RAINN.

my new triptych album is out!!!

https://f4.bcbits.com/img/a0584310112_16.jpg

https://eversonpoe.bandcamp.com/album/the-body-is-not-sacred-complete

here's what my amazing friend dan caffrey had to say about it:


For the last decade, Maxwell Shults has recorded a dynamic body of work under the name Everson Poe, exploring everything from doom metal to new wave and even the occasional '50s slow-dance song. No matter the genre, their music has always been characterized by heaviness—not just in sound (although they certainly embody that, too), but in emotion as well. And their latest project, The Body Is Not Sacred is, without question, their most emotionally heavy work to date.

Exploring Maxwell's gender identity and struggle with gender dysphoria, the music embraces duality to convey two distinct halves living in the same being. Maxwell's visceral howl—a sound that many would characterize as being typically "masculine"—contrasts with the softer, ethereal vocals of longtime collaborator DEROSNEC. Both of their faces grace the album cover, embracing gender fluidity and making it hard to tell where one person ends and the other begins.

The duality extends to the arrangements and lyrics as well. On opener "We All Become Our Sins," a crackling spoken-word intro and ghostly wail from DEROSNEC quickly give way to Maxwell's jackhammer drums, guitar, and voice. Likewise, on lead single "No Comfort In The Void," Maxwell screams the phrase "I strive to reject the masculine in all its forms," subverting what listeners and critics have come to expect from even the most emotionally in-tune metal music.

The Body Is Not Sacred has no shortage of ambition. As Everson Poe's first triptych, the self-titled first section contains the four songs that serve as the album's foundation. Part two, The Body Is A Prison, raises the emotional stakes with four hard-hitting instrumentals, and the third and final part, The Body Is An Illusion, consists of "polite" versions of the songs from part one. Softer and more reliant on acoustics, the compositions are what one might call "feminine."

But as The Body Is Not Sacred proves, these kinds of labels mean nothing in the world of Everson Poe. Through their latest and greatest three-part epic, they present a journey where gender is first a puzzle, then a cage, and, finally, nonexistent.

interesting that you chose that order. i think that'll make it a very different experience and i'm excited to hear your thoughts! and also really glad you're enjoying it <3


I love that cover!

thanks! nina (derosnec) is a fucking wizard. she took a picture of me that's four years old where you could only see half of my face, then took a picture of herself to match, and merged them together. i don't know how she does it (but she also worked on the VFX post team for the new Antman movie so she's pretty fuckin' talented).

hopefully we'll be putting out a video for "no comfort in the void" at some point that explores the gender-related themes on the album. i'm pretty excited about it.

a couple weeks ago, i had one mostly finished song and one skeleton of a song (both of which i had done last april, right after my previous album came out)...and yesterday i released my this. i made so much progress so quickly and i am so proud of it. definitely the heaviest thing i've ever done (both sonically and emotionally). enjoy!
