    I'm really late to the game here. But this post by Jeff stirred my curiosity:

    I'm glad I listened to the track posted above! Holy hell, Egan. This sounds fantastic. I think I'll have to pick this up!

    God yes I can't wait. It's been a long time since I've really gotten into a metal album.. but this is like heavy soft music. Beautiful chords, so pleasant to listen to, despite teh br00tz.

    I apologize, the audio is mono right now due to a video snafu but we're going to swap it out shortly.
    Thanks for checking it out!

    Good stuff! The songs you posted are pretty nice and they sound amazing. Can you share any details on the guitars?

    Glad you like it. Rhythms are quad tracked with a an LTD sc w/ an 81. Two tracks of 5150 II w/o a boost and two of a DR with a ts9. Everything went through a recto cab mic'd with a 57 and 421.
    Leads are a little trickier. I used the 5150, orange channel DR or red channel DR for different stuff. I also used a XXX in at a couple of spots. The guitars used for leads were an ESP MII, a Jackson DK2S, the LTD SC, and a Roscoe LP.
    Cleans were the SC, the DK2S and the Roscoe. 90% were through a fender blues deluxe but the insanely effected stuff is pod farm (or pod farm layered with the amp).

    ^Thanks for the info. They sound great. In fact the whole production is awesome.

    I wish I can work with Jens Bogren sometime in the future, he has become one of my favorite metal producers.

    Alright fellas. It's out now in the US.
    The album is $8.91 on iTunes and the CD is $12 shipped from us within the US.
    The European/UK release is 10/22 but we'll ship it to you now for $18.
    Sorry to be so spammy. I've got a few years invested in this and I want it to do well. Thanks for your interest and support!

    Grabbed it on iTunes. Thankfully I have a door I can close here at work so I can crank it up. Sounds fantastic even on shitty PC speakers. Great job, Egan!

    Hi, I'm a journo. Just dropping by to say A Frail Becoming is my album of the year so far. It's pure excellence within every little musical bit. I especially love the beginning of "An Heir To Emptiness" - that unpleasant drone turns to musical brilliance in mere seconds, completely unexpected! I bury myself into it at least 3 times daily and I can't get enough. And giving it an almost perfect 10 was an immense pleasure. Thanks for the awesome, dark music!
