I created this demo in 2,011, when I was 20 years old. I never "finished" this demo because I hit a rough patch in my life, got extremely depressed, and stopped listening to and making metal music. I began writing songs for this album in 2,009. Unfortunately, I no longer have access to the original versions. Most of these songs have evolved into music that I am still working with on Hungry Lights.
With this particular album, I had just started working with the EZdrummer MIDI drum program as well as POD Farm 2.0 digital amplifiers. This was the gateway for the Hungry Lights guitar tone.

This demo album was to be the sequel to "Everything That Exists." It was about a man named "Prill." He and his wife have a child, and a prophet tells them that their unborn child (Kar'tahn) needs to be killed, or it will grow up and destroy the entire universe. Kar'tahn is born, and Prill throws it off a mountain, but the child lands in a magical pond where it is encased inside of a seed-pod.
Two decades later, Prill starts getting visions of his son returning. A man called "The Master" tells him to lead his son to the top of the mountain, and he will take it from there. Low and behold, Kar'tahn emerges from the pod. He returns to his parents and injects his mother with the water from the magic pond. She mutates into a horrible creature, and Prill has to kill her. Then, Prill has to chase his son to the top of the mountain and they have a battle. Kar'tahn is about to kill Prill, when a magical door opens and The Master comes out ensnaring Kar'tahn and letting Prill live.
Fun fact: The name "One Priest One Stone" came from a time when I was playing World of Warcraft. My ex-girlfriend was waiting for me to run her through a dungeon. I asked her to summon me, and she said, "But I am only one priest, and there is only one stone."
Fun fact: The name "Prite & Prill" came from a time when I was playing World of Warcraft. My ex-girlfriend asked me where the next quest chain was. I meant to say, "Right in Brill" but it came out as "Pright in Prill."
Fun fact: This demo was also when I started pulling away from my "band" and becoming a solo artist, as I realized I could just program drums and record all the rest of the instruments.
Fun fact: Fun fact: I wrote "The Underpinning Of General Reem" in my head, during a college class because I was bored and uninterested in whatever the teacher was teaching.
Fun fact: I had been messing with some of the riffs in "Contempt" since 2,009, and it took me about two years before I figured out what song I wanted to put them in.
All songs written, recorded, mixed and mastered by Justin Bonitz.
Never compare your chapter 1 to somebody else's chapter 20.
