twentythree2 Amazing record. Haven't come across anything that sounds like this. Very primal. It's been my "connect with myself" music for months now. I also like the variety of sounds in each song and how they all have a different story to tell. Favorite track: Golden Death Chant.

Greg Johnson Just amazing. I can’t imagine how he came up with this from just the sparse set of tools listed. Has to be heard to be believed.

Dead Desert 03:17
The air is sour the light grows dimmer the road grows harder this life has lied to me of all things measured pure and of my own divinity as time wears on i find that I am scared an angst inside of me for what Ive done for what we are for what we cant stop hes gone now its ours he deserved every cut every cut and now its yours its always been yours
Overtones 04:56
Far to the north far to the north over the mountains over the plains lives a family of five struggling violently to survive Im mute Im insane Im gay Im godless Im frightened we are the sacred and profane lift your hands and bow to my father he will burn your sins on the altar what is weak? what is strong? fuck your rights and fuck all your wrongs ten thousand years of beating our child hiding bruises whose pollution grows wild sucking air feeding this dream were down on our knees waiting for the day when the bodies of our debt will rise and rip you from your cross from the smoke and the fog of your name the sun has come and killed the father and nailed his god upon the altar we are the sun and we are the father for we will kill everything that we honor in this house of stone
First Born 03:31
We are the last of our tribe of our name hungry wolves westward bound weve shed our locks of love and rage laying bone-naked in the sun-soaked liberty of a numb and desperate minimum wage I kill without question its easier that way cloaked in thorns nervously gnawing on my shame and suffering trained to kill everything what have I done? I slit my fathers throat with the knife that he gave to me and the promise of his throne what have I become? I tried to be a man I cover my skin with paint and blood and kill upon command what have I done? my mind is my tomb Ive given my thone to my next of kin as I wait here in my room I want to evolve Ill suffer in secret its easier that way its easier that way
Omnipotent 04:43
Seven highways stretch out straight from my pride and from my hate seven highways stretch out across the land going nowhere going nowhere seven highways stretch out straight from my house and from my name seven highways stretch out across the land going nowhere going nowhere going nowhere going... America! I know you filled with blood eyes of blue America! I love you come clean with me please come true My Jericho! I loathe you as your sun I owe you My Fatherland! I now rule king supreme I have a dream
Second Sun 04:26
And ye shall succumb to the sleep of eternity as the Second Sun Ill become your chosen one I can taste the marrow of your bones with every breath as I drown the sound of your death out of my head for I shall come and rescue our name through vengeful grace your world of pillars bricks and bones will crumble into the night this is my time to cleanse our land of your pagan reign and lead us into a golden age to resurrect and uphold the names of honored fathers who paved the way I cleanse us of the soot of your sin and part the sea of the shame were in Ill never ever give up my truth Ill never ever give it back to you and I have a WHOOOO! vivid erection and I have a big imagination and so I take my throne eyes of light all is well
Silent Fall 04:18
Silent silent silent fall nothing sacred exists at all say goodbye to the mountain side say goodbye to the lions cry say goodbye to the trees and the breeze of the ancient ancient ancient days and with soot-covered crystal eyes she leapt out upon silver skies and I wept for my mothers fragility fading gently with the rain silent silent silent fall nothing sacred exists at all and I wish dearly to believe that the cloth of your corpse is real and that youll ascend from the sand and save me from their pagan hands oh how I want my mother this night stripped bare and alive silent silent silent fall nothing sacred exists at all
Coyote 05:04
God bless you my blue coyote with your lonesome drunken howl death spared you from doom my lovely lonely blue and broken boy you oh you were true and were right the night you tried to take your life with your gun you cried save woah woah woah! oh oh oh oh dearest friend the night has not gone just yet blue dawn is blooming as it breaks as it grows and as it flows across the land across our lives and sheds its light and if it be our lot to die then die we shall come what may upon desert plains of vacant loves we say save me woah woah woah! save me
Came to me in the dead of a pagan night with tidings of a boy in the name of a god came in me at the end of a pagan age with tidings of the end of an ancient reign brother dear in the spite of your angry zeal you killed our father here in the name of a god godless I see the end of the ageless days and search our land in vain for a hiding place I saw you in my sleep Ancient of Days Beautiful like tears of rain and dangerous black mountain pain I hear your voice inside my eyes and so I travel north to my fathers grave to stand beside the boy with the name of a god brother dear in the night of this pagan day I shall defend our name for the sake of your god father I hear your voice calling me home
Ohohoh 05:53
Silver soldier blue and golden growing older growing colder feels the landslide rolling over baby bones and ancient thunder then the starlight ate my mother swept the landside white with dead light I hear the voices of the ageless huge and faceless dark and graceless ohohohohohoh ohohohohohohoh ohohohohohoh ohohohohohohoh I am a mountain! I am a mountain! Im not a human I am a mountain! Deep in the distance echos and phantoms drink from my fountain blood of blue howls and as I grow older I weep no longer death is my mother her will grows stronger deep in the distance songs of my fathers whisper through my mouth louder and louder ohohohohohoh ohohohohohohoh ohohohohohoh ohohohohohohoh now I see never was made for you never was made for me now I see ohohohohohoh ohohohohohohoh ohohohohohoh ohohohohohohoh
I drowned myself in the river and walked away down silver canyon trails to ease the pain as I take you inside I will make you bleed I will sate my need I wont let you go I wont let you NO. You named me well the shaman of snakes your third son, Viedriel Close your eyes lay your head back as I take you inside Call me evil GO. Call me stupid Ohhh. Think Im funny? Yeah? Go ahead, boy LAUGH. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA WOAH HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA WOAH I drowned myself in the blood of my lust close your eyes take your last breath as I take you inside.
I wanted to scream today but I cant keep time and I missed my chance to howl needlessly at the roots and nails of your hungry dance I wanted to save you from the knife you drew to pierce his throat Im feeling overwhelmed by the sacred signs that adorn my hands lupine blue light rain on me golden death chant set me free oh my star when will your laughter shed its light on the broken grounds of this blue and broken night can you hear the mantra of a thousand voices of steel humming as one as the prophets had forseen golden death chant set me free white skin eyes closed with a silent smile and a golden pledge to that which never runs ooooooooooh rolling thunder here we go golden death chant set me free
I wont ask for this I wont ask you for this I wish I could wash your feet and heal you you are my golden star how great you are my sacred heart how beautiful you are great unstable house of stone youre all I know you are my golden star how great you are my sacred heart how beautiful you are I wont ask for this I wont ask you to leave behind your dreams for the sake of peace you are my House of Stone I cling to you please dont let go youre all I know great unstable house of stone youre all I know you are my golden star how great you are my sacred heart how beautiful you are
I am here now so listen for the last time listen to my voice as I call your name the road is getting darker up ahead the water is getting higher I reach out for your hand now to lead you through the murk dont lose your smile and hold me for we are the sun and we are the one we are the one we are the one we are the one we are the one NO ONE EVER TELLS ME NO! no one ever tells me no no one ever... youre so dear to me I cant go with you get out while you can Ill be here watching over you you were the light for me you taught me how to speak when Im gone sing your song for me guilded golden chant of death crown of thorns upon my head I am First Born Son and King and heir to Fathers reign supreme and I will fight for you and I will fight I will die for you I will give my life for you oh my god goodbye oh cruel world goodbye oh my love goodbye oh my child goodbye


In the last few years, Sorne has written over 80 songs using only the voice, handmade instruments and found objects. The first 13 were released in 2011 in his debut album, House of Stone, and he’s working on the rest to be released in a series of chapters, one for each of the five siblings, the star characters of the House of Stone saga: First Born. Second Son. Black Sister. Little Brother. Blue Sister.

Set in no particular time or place, the story speaks of family relationships, focusing on the death of the father and highlighting Sorne’s obsession with the Divine Mother. House of Stone grew in his mind for years, the characters initially born as direct reflections of his mother and her siblings. House of Stone evolved from childhood views of family into characters with a life of their own, each representing, in Sorne’s words, “archetypes of the human condition.”

A short film based on the story behind the album House of Stone entitled "Children of the Black Mountain" premiered at the SXSW Film Fest 2012 and can be seen at


released January 11, 2011
