    Veil of Thorns fans will recognize this image from the cover of their 2002 album Birthed. The period in which this drawing was created was one of visual exploration that matches the sonic exploration found on Birthed. This a unique chance to own the original drawing connected with one of the band's most popular releases.

    As we head out of summer and we look back over our first months of existence, we want to bring on another deal that links to some of what we have planned. For as long as we have pieces on hand, we will be offering P. Emerson Williams original art for the price of prints, and in some cases, even well below that.

    What we are doing is funding an endeavour of major proportions. We can't hint at the nature of this, but it is a massive undertaking and for this we are offering original art at a price anyone can afford. There are several releases slated for this month as well, but we are going to try to keep a pace of posting at least twelve art pieces a day until everything is sold. We have everything from small impromptu ink and pencil drawings from the early 1990's up to this last week, watercolours, and oil paint and acrylic canvases of varying sizes from 10"x12" to acrylic on 90"x120" heavy acid free paper.

    When you add two or more pieces to your collection we will be throwing in all kinds of extras. And we have many extras to add. So here, to get things rolling is a drawing from twenty years ago. Just be fore the art of P. Emerson Williams was to start showing up in hundreds of goth, metal and occult 'zines across the world. The full development of his signature work of the 1990's was yet to come, but you can see that is was well along in its development.

Starry Skies 04:34
Raining Down A demons physiognomy in extasis Locked in a grim and hopeless rictus Laughing, gibbering, all sense expired A livid chanting greets the fatality of frost The barren cattle call beneath the locust swarms The end shook us awake, raining down, Driven like snow no lie, no mass consensus we are no more, we are no more on bloodied wings on past grey spires inflames a sanguine dance to wanton glory we aspire caress of crimson rain a hollow shrilling calls through forgotten catacombs a shriek, a lash, a crushing blow levelling ancient lies The end shook us awake, raining down, Driven like snow no lie, no mass consensus we are no more, we are no more now, go to sleep sweet hollow child

Within the tracks on "Birthed", a CD by Veil Of Thorns, you can hear parallels to industrial bands such as Pig, Razed in Black and Nine Inch Nails and, more often than not, you can hear the pure creativity of P. Emerson Williams. Anything created by this man, the brain behind Choronzon (black metal tinged with experimental, ambient and industrial edges) , you would expect to be eclectic and creative. It's his trademark. Herein you'll encounter thick, pummeling, distorted spears of electro/guitar industrial, D&B, goth, dirgey slow industrial moodiness, etc., etc., etc., etc., in fact, etcetera ad infinitum. What's persistent in Williams' smooth, creative and original fusion of various elements is the sustained tone and mood, like that of a soul resigned to nihilistic fate. None of Emerson's creations are quite like anything else, even when you're hearing touches of something else in there. His fierce originality score another point for the underground.
