about

My second full length release, PHANTOMS contained a mixture of both older pre-XORCIST and current work.

I was concurrently running House Of Usher every week along with scoring and creating sound design for the video game IRON HELIX so needless to say, my plate was filled with nightclubs, gaming, scores and sound effects 24/7. Still I managed to release PHANTOMS in 1994 which found the songs The Gift and Iron Helix tearing up dance floors across the world.
Other tracks gave peek into my atmospheric compositions as well as my humorous side as with “Christy” which was recorded more as a joke for a software programmer co-worker at the time who fell in lust with the then porn star Christy Canyon during our trip to CES in Chicago.

Of Waldorf PPG interest, track 10 (The Harmonic Convergence) was composed entirely on a PPG Waveterm + PPG 2.3 as was most of track 8 (Is Love?).

about

Xorcist California

Since 1985 I've been writing and performing as Xorcist along with my side projects XE:NON and Diode Fetish.

I've scored several indie movies and video games and was one of the sound designers for the MTV Aeon Flux series.

I was also one of the 4 co-partners for the infamous House of Usher nightclub in the Bay Area and to this day still DJ/VJ throughout the Bay Area.

Track Name: The Gift
here we are alone again
your touch, a long lost friend
the pain, i'd live before
the love, i'd die once more
into your arms

Take me down into your night
cast off once more this fear of flight
your power grows and takes control
your flesh entraps and burns my soul

she kills her word upon deaf ears
she spills herself like caustic tears
to feel her close in blinding light
to steal her strength with just one bite
out love of life and dreams of death
forever shared between our breaths
your gift to me
is the strength
and the power
of your flesh
Track Name: Iron Helix
cold inception, biblical release
brought upon the ones who give you peace
blind after thought, permanent release
on board terror, target indiscreet
metal savior, dark lord
genocide, dehumanize

the iron helix
the iron helix

your conviction lies beyond defeat
caustic visions clouding victory
life torn apart, never in control
pure corruption, feeding hell your soul
biologic, mutant
sterilize, electrofied
