CORROSIONS sprawls over the 2 sides with 6 tracks and nearly an hour of sonic dissonance.

::: sincerest thanks are in order to bob of tycho magnetic anomalies for allowing me to take on this crazy endeavor and for supporting my obsessions. i am very much obliged.






From the tycho magnetic anomalies:
"There is a sense of wonder and despair to the post apocalyptic soundtrack that A Death Cinematic is slowly unleashing on the world, one release at a time, and Corrosions Of Traveled Daydreams just might be the most realized vehicle for that vision (and the album was quite literally born to be on tape). Even without lyrics, Corrosions Of Traveled Daydreams tells multiple stories of peoples and places and things that have left only their ruins behind them. The whole presentation of the album is a work of art that hearkens back to a recently bygone era bringing the tangible aspects of opening and exploring and listening to the record together again."






available in limited hand numbered quantities from tyco magnetic anomalies.
