I created this demo in 2,010, when I was 20 year old. I recorded and mixed everything with Cubase LE 4. I recorded my drummer with a few drum mics and an 8-track mixer. The vocals were recorded with a Sennheiser e835 dynamic mic. All of these songs have evolved into music that I am still working with on Hungry Lights

This demo album was the second version of The Mourn. This version was again about a guy named, "Kar'tahn" who had amnesia, and was going around injecting people with a death serum, and he did not know why. He just did what "The Master" told him to do. Again, he meets a girl and they fall in love. The Master wrenches him away from her and puts him in a dark prison. In this prison, he begins to get his memories back, and realizes that he sold his soul to The Master. Kar'tahn gets angry, escapes and seeks salvation, and to get back to his lover, but fails.
He breaks into The Master's lair so that he can destroy The Mourning Star, which is the source of all life in the entire universe. After a battle with The Master, he meets The Maker, who is the man who created the star and keeps the cycle of life going. Kar'tahn kills The Maker, and as a result the universe restarts.
Fun fact: The name "amnÆon" came from combining the word "amnesia" with "aeon." The concept was that after a very long time, you forget who you are.
Fun fact: If you listen to Aphotic Currents, you can hear me in the background singing the chorus of "Simulating The Effects" because I had already written half of the tracks off the second amnaeon album including: One Priest One Stone, Prite & Prill, Trice, and T.A.P.E.
Fun fact: The melody for Aphotic Currents originally came from the ending of One Priest One Stone. I love the sound of it so much that I began using it as a theme song for the music.
Fun fact: I wrote "Fothcrah" in my head, during a college class because I was really bored and uninterested in whatever the teacher was teaching.
Fun fact: Ataxia was a gateway song. It was the first song that I ever wrote that did not really have a chorus or any repetitive verses. It just flowed out of me as is, and I left it unrefined.
All songs were written, recorded, mixed by Justin Bonitz.
