____________________________

Based in California, USA, AN ISOLATED MIND is the one-man experimental metal project of Kameron Bogges, who has given birth to a genuinely surprising and genre-defying album. Despite its deep roots into atmospheric post-metal, “I'm Losing Myself” embraces both death and doom metal as seen through the altering lenses of ambient music. The result is a psychedelic journey into a wounded psyche, a downwards spiral into feelings of melancholy, angst and depression.
“This album was written and recorded after being diagnosed with bipolar disorder and spending a week in a psychiatric hospital,” Bogges reveals. “I spent the following year walking the fine line between psychotic delusion and spiritual epiphany, systematically doubting and reconstructing my psyche to accommodate my newfound reality.”

Music-wise, “I'm Losing Myself” is heavy as it is ethereal. It lives in a constant equilibrium between the sheer power of death and doom metal riffs filtrated through a post-metal sensibility and the delicate sounds of synthesizers, that add a hallucinated feel to the whole.

A limpid picture of the artist's mental condition, the debut of AN ISOLATED MIND recreates his painful inner struggles, and in Bogges' own words it's “a journal documenting the terrors and bliss of losing oneself to the mysteries beyond reason.”

Track Name: Afraid of Dissonance
I fear my own mind
And its bizarre contortions of the past
I know nothing
I see all
With a fleeting I

Reliving the genocide of past lives
longing for the attention of God

Please let go

I will break through
To the other side
There awaits
A life worth living
Track Name: Eternity in a Minute
A moment sacrificed to the day
To feed the gaping mouth of time
Cycles to trap a fearful mind
Within a concrete cage
Please help me

She said “I’ll be back in a minute”
A cold wind chilled me down to my essence
I knew she would never be back
I knew she was never there
Please help me
Track Name: Turritopsis Dohrnii
When you’ve seen all that there is
Will you come back to Earth?

Walking slowly toward the engrossing light
What more can death bring
That life has not prepared for?
Abstract forms tear off my skin
Replace my eyes with diamonds

I regress to a polyp
Track Name: Pathologized Existence
Walking towards the house
Not sure if I’m asleep or dead
The ravens call for me
To rest my weary head
Have I become a ghost?
Can others see me at all?
Do they know I’ve lived a thousand lives for them?
And yet I ask for nothing in return
The suffering incurred
through separation
Pathologize my existence
Repress the beauty in a single moment

I forgive you for what you’ve done to me
Its time to move on from this suffering

I won’t ever be the same
I can’t go back to the way it used to be
There’s something more, I can’t explain
I gave up trying
And it set me free
Time has dissolved
The concrete cage has lifted
I cannot fear myself
If I do not exist
I do not exist
I do not exist
