The 2nd full-length solo album from John Haughm, “1865 // 1895: Cast.Iron.Blood.”, is the followup to “+37.717364 // -117.247955: The Last Place I Remember” and continues the wayward journey of the dystopian 19th century nomad as he navigates the inter-dimensional desert. It is the 2nd in what is intended to be a trilogy and takes on a more fully orchestrated soundtrack approach.

the 3rd and final installment of the Nomad Trilogy. It is an eclectic and largely somber record depicting the the end of the mortal world and the beginning of the Nomad’s spiritual journey. A full circle back to “The Last Place I Remember” with bursts of film score elements that appeared on “Cast.Iron.Blood.”

The album begins with a 19 minute medical dissection and funeral soundscape utilizing only instruments available in the late 19th Century - harmonium, cello, piano, zithers, a 78 recording played on a Berliner phonograph, and various dissection tools. The cello was composed and performed by the excellent Kakophonix (Osi & The Jupiter) and the result sounds like a despairing Henryk Górecki collaboration with Current 93 inside an 1890s museum of the macabre.

The spiral continues with the The Devil’s Coil suite, which evolves from lush atmospheric and haunting Mellotron choral passages, fuge organ, harmonica, and banjo into a grandiose metallic crescendo and back to the somber plucks of piano and noise scape accompaniment.
