You are slowly being destroyed. It’s imperceptible in the scheme of a day or a week or even a year, but you are aging, and your body is degrading. As your cells synthesize the very proteins that allow you to live, they also release free radicals, oxidants that literally perforate your tissue and cause you to grow progressively less able to perform as you did at your peak. By the time you reach 80, you will literally be full of holes, and though you’ll never notice a single one of them, you will inevitably feel their collective effect. Aging and degradation are forces of nature, functions of living, and understanding them can be as terrifying as it is gratifying.

Pomp is a glorious experience not to be denied by anyone. Harmsworth’s fourth full length release and easily his best, Pomp takes the listener to another place completely. Through darkness and into light, down a dim path to a breathtaking water mass. This release is just as much dark as it is light. Just as much distortion as it is mellow. This work to me is perfect. Enjoy one of the best pieces of music that I have the pleasure of releasing!His third full length release and definitely his best yet!
