Hello Eric,
Thank you for the link. We did see this, too. MANY bands have been affected. AOTW has not been affected, other than the campaign being suspended, just like all the bands on pledgemusic.
We have recorded the album, and will begin mixing next week.
PledgeMusic has informed us that there will be a resolution in 90 days (as Of January 25). At that time, we will also have an answer. Until then, we are proceeding with our plans.
Thank you for your support and concern!

Hello Trent,
Thank you for your inquiry. To be honest, we do not have an answer. AOTW has not been affected like other bands, so we are moving forward and finishing the album.
We were informed by Pledgemusic that there will be a resolution in 90 days, so we will proceed with our plans until we have further information.
Thank you for your support and concern.

I'm so excited about the signed vinyl. There's a spot on my wall just waiting for it lol. I've met and talked to Burton 3 times (New Orleans, Houston, and Cincinnati) and he's truly the nicest artist I've ever met. He's always willing to take the time to meet with folks which means a lot to me because FF have been a staple for me for over 2 decades. I cannot wait for this project to be completed. Thank you for everything thru the years.

Hello Tony!
Thank you for your continued support! I do enjoy meeting and speaking with fans wherever I may be, and though I may be terrible with names. I do remember faces!
Just so you know, we are proceeding forward and finishing this album. We are not going to make any decisions until Pledgemusic resolves their issues.
Sincerely,
AoTW

Just ordered my signed Stormcrow CD by Burton C Bell to add to my collection. Ascension of The Watchers speaks to my soul and I can’t wait to add this music to my meditation ️ Thank You

Hey Burton, for the Vintage pack tier that includes the Iconoclast album I noticed in the checkout screen it says it is a vinyl copy. Is getting the Iconoclast album on CD an option? I don't own a record player sadly.

Brian Buckley

Brian Buckley commented

I am also wondering abut this myself if a CD option is possible?

Not a deal breaker though.

Hello Joel,
Thank you for your inquiry! The CD of Iconoclast is not available. Sold out years ago. I only have ICONOCLAST ON VINYL. Thank you for your consideration!

Sincerely,
Burton

Joel (or anyone else reading),
Even if you don’t have a record player, you should get an Iconoclast vinyl! I have one framed on my wall and the artwork is nice. The demo versions of On The River & Residual Presense sounds awesome. Do yourself a favor and get one

Hey Burt!
Just rewatched the Ghost Heart video and I’m very much looking forward to Stormcrow \m/ (awesome title BTW!) I can remember first hearing the 2 demos you put online. I’m still listening to Iconoclast. I kind have grown fond of the demo of On The River & Residual Presense. Hope all goes well with the completion of the new record! Molly and I look forward to your next Dallas show

I hope you decided to include Keys to the Cosmos, but either way I know I’m gonna be all about this album.
You (and your bands) have been creating the soundtrack to my life since the ‘97. Much thanks for the soaring vocals and thought-provoking lyrics.

KEY TO THE COSMOS will definitely be on Stormcrow!

Dear Brian,
Thank you for pledging, and thank you for your wonderful words about Ghost Heart!

My vision for the entire Stormcrow album will be much like this, however, every song is different.

The fact that you are aware of AoTW's music, and our diversity with music makes me confident that you will love this album. We have grown over the years, producing music that sonically represents the music in my dreams. Ethereal, textured, raw, melodic, dark, melancholy...

Shall I create a post with all the song titles on the new album?
Obvioulsy STORMCROW is a name of a track. would people be interested in reading something like that?

Thank you for your enduring support. I look forward to meeting you again.

Best Wishes,
Burton

Hey Burton,

It's certainly my pleasure and :)

Your music has been a meant so much to me immensely to me for a large portion of my life and I am glad to see you spread your creativity in different exciting ways through AoTW.

Your vision for Stormcrow and the way you are describing it.......I will definitely love it!

I am truly excited!

Yes, absolutely! I would be more than curious to see what the titles are and I'm sure others would be too.

Thank you Burton, I am always glad to support any way I can and looking forward to speaking to you again through the Skype call.

Best Regards,
Brian

Hello Brian,
I just returned from Wales. We have recorded Stormcrow, and the mix will begin March 12! I am excited for people to hear this. No one has any idea of what they are about to hear!

Just pledged and I am blown away with Ghost Heart.

Just wow, I can't stop listening to it!!!

I can't wait for Stormcrow!

I have been listening since AoTW began.

I really love Quintessence, Becoming Mars, Evading from Numinosum and judging from Ghost Heart it an awesome evolution.

I have been personally a huge fan of yourself for over 20 years, I met you in 2015, I couldn't of had a better experience, I was nervous as hell and you were so cool and accommodating. It's something I will never forget, thank you.

I am really looking forward to the return of AoTW and am happy to support one of my hero's!

Looking forward to speaking to you again Burt!

Thanks
Brian
