Hi, this is Sam from Projekt / Black Tape For A Blue Girl… We’ve launched the crowdfunding/preOrder campaign for PORTLAND, the first recording in 23 years from Thanatos original members! PORTLAND features 14 all new recordings from Patrick (guitar & vocals) and Me (on electronics); including 4 cover songs plus two recreations of tracks from our 1993 debut. Stream the tracks to hear our new music.
Visit Bandcamp to preOrder Portland; you create your own premium from the ala carte CD, Poster, T-shirt and more.
You get the 14-track download immediately. The merchandise ships after we reach the goal and get them manufactured, expecting that to be mid-August.
I’m very satisfied with this album — it’s an authentic follow-up to our first two CDs from the early 90s. Thanatos returns to the sparse dark-rock atmospheres sound fans love!
🏮 Supporting Portland 🏮
Backing this campaign is both preordering and becoming a patron of the arts. By pledging, you become part of the team: the lifeblood that funds physical items we otherwise would not have the money to create. Every contribution is important — whether you give $10 or $200! Whatever you contribute, you’re supporting art — and that’s super-cool of you! Your pledges allow this independent, fan-funded album to see the light of day.
We appreciate your support! Thanks for putting a little something in our pockets.
This campaign is all or nothing! Your pledges make the difference. No matter how much you give, you help us get to our $2500 goal. We thank you for that!
🏮 A brief history of Thanatos 🏮
Thanatos formed in the early 80s when vocalist/guitarist Patrick Ogle (Padraic Ogl) and keyboardist Sam Rosenthal (Sam Rosenthal) began playing original music in South Florida. Dark Americana? Folk Music? Goth Rock? It’s hard to say. Yes, it is dark sometimes, but it hardly harkens back to the forerunners of the goth genre. It’s difficult to plug the music into a genre. Together, Ogle / Rosenthal recorded 1993’s THIS ENDLESS NIGHT INSIDE and 1995’s AN EMBASSY TO GAIUS. After that, Rosenthal focussed on Projekt Records, while Ogle toured and recorded additional Thanatos albums with a full band.
“Thanatos creator Padraic Ogl strips down his sound even further, leaving only gleaming bleached bones. Few artists can create such compelling atmospheres with vocals and acoustic guitar alone, aided only by the occasional electronics from black tape for a blue girl’s Sam Rosenthal. But Ogl does this with ease, exposing a subtle beauty, leaving the lyrics to glitter in the pale light.” – Jo-Ann Greene Alternative Press
