Grech Hushes the Record Labels2020-04-07 by NedEllis | 2 Comments
|Martin Grech, the industrial / folk artist last in the limelight for his feature on TesseracT's track 'Hexes' in 2017, has released his fourth album 'Hush Mortal Coil' via Patreon.|
Thirteen years after his last, self-released album, the British / Maltese musician has decided to move up the release date due to the uncertain timeline involved with securing a satisfying record label deal.
He explained the details of his reasoning with a post on his Facebook page :
To all supporters,
Tomorrow I will release Hush Mortal Core to you all. In this strange time it has become obvious that art, although not the cure for our current problems, plays some role by bringing us joy, distraction and at best an opportunity to self reflect.
I had hoped for a record label supported release, as this could have provided the resources to enable me to payback all the generosity of the people who worked to bring this record to life. Without their time, effort and donated skills this record could not have been made. However, recent events have devastated any real chance of this album seeing a label release for the next year.
We all agree, another year is too long.
Tomorrow Hush Mortal Core will be available to download from my Patreon page:
Both MP3 and Wav versions will be available for download and include a lyric eBook. Joining up to my Patreon currently is the best way to support the album. However if your budget can not stretch to Patreon, then just over 2 weeks from this release the whole album will be available to stream on Spotify.
I would really l like to to make a physical version of Hush Mortal Core available. With enough support, the plan is to work toward a self funded Vinyl release.
Hopefully this news finds you all well. If you know anyone you think would like to know about this release please share this link with them. Thank you so much for all the support over the years. I hope you enjoy the record.
The only track formerly released and included on the album is 'Mothflower' :

I am fucking hyped for this.
Digging: The Smashing Pumpkins - Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
The album is very good! Kind of a mix between his first and second album with more orchestral elements added. I might attempt it as my first review. In theory it should be on Spotify next week.
There are also four other tracks - of which two new demos - already available on his Patreon; I am still shocked he has such a small following and that news for this guy is so hard to come by...
