The Release of The Life and Times of a Spiritual Gangster by @SheerZed 19/01/2018 #NewMusicFriday

The Life and Times of a Spiritual Gangster

This collection of four experimental electronic ambient drone audio works reflects life changing experiences I had during an eight day trip to Thailand in late September 2017. There I met four remarkable and sublime high occult practitioners in the Thai Buddhist Lanna discipline (‘ajarns’). During a 24 hour period in the environs of Chiang Mai I went through deeply profound magickal rituals in which both fire and gold were blown onto and slammed into my body, visited ancient meditation caves, experienced inexplicable psychic phenomenon and endured the placement of an invisible sacred magickal tattoo (Sak Yant) on my upper back dedicated to Mae Surastri (a profound and holy earth goddess). This album is dedicated with love to Ajarn Daeng, Ajarn Suea, Ajarn Nanting, Ajarn Apichai and Peter Jenx of The Thai Occult. The album was mastered by Gregg Janman at Hermetech Mastering. The album is released on my birthday 19th January 2018 onto numerous digital platforms worldwide including GooglePlay, 7Digital, itunes, TIDAL, Xbox, Spotify, Deezer, Napster and AmazonMusic to name but a few. The track The Purifying Influential Rituals of Fire and Gold is streamable in full on SoundCloud for your listening pleasure.
