- The Fortieth Day is the duo of Isidro Reyes and Mark Solotroff, both key players in the heavy-electronics outfit BLOODYMINDED, a band known for its aggressive and confrontational live shows. In The Fortieth Day, Reyes and Solotroff utilize guitar, bass, drum machine, and analog synthesizer to create epic, blackened, psychedelic-industrial drone soundscapes.
Mark Solotroff - I had the pleasure of spending time with Signore Paolo L. Bandera (Sigillum S/Sshe Retina Stimulants) and we discussed a new collaborative recording that I'll be getting started on shortly.
- Thanks to everyone who has downloaded and/or listened to my new recording, "Symmetrical Spaces of Communication." I sent the master to the cassette plant earlier this week. You can now listen to the recording online via the usual outlets, including: Bandcamp iTunes Spotify
Here are a few more of the photos that I've been posting on IG/FB and that I'm including on my new Website:
- David, Jonathan and I are continuing our work on the first new Nightmares music in over ten years. We've all been sharing tracks, David has sent us some rough mixes, and I'm really excited by our progress. We're continuing to document our progress and post images on FB and IG. Here's a new photo from Jonathan:
"Dr. Freud wants to discuss my Nightmares. He also says taping down the lowest key apparently says something about my mother."
- Nightmares is the synth trio of Jonathan Canady (Angel of Decay, Dead World, Deathpile, etc.), David Reed (Envenomist, Imvixor, Luasa Raelon, etc.) and Mark Solotroff (Anatomy of Habit, BLOODYMINDED, The Fortieth Day, Intrinsic Action, etc.)
