About Vinland

Comets Ov Cupid is a Kosmische Music project by Jason Kesselring, formerly of Space Rock group Skye Klad and wyrd folk project The Satyrswitch. Darkly cosmic, the music evokes a sense of eternal twilight while creating a sonic landscape of distorted voices, cosmic pulse, and hazy drones. Guitar based in composition the sounds range from full blown metalgazer walls of sound to ethereal astral folk.

81818 Comets Ov Cupid live at Safeguard Missle Complex. Nekoma, ND

Project 81818

Location: Safeguard Missle Complex (aka North Dakota Pyramid or “Illuminati Pyramid”) and RSL#3 Missle site. Both are now out of commission. Pyramid is in a state of ruin. Flooded and dangerous to walk amongst unattended.

Date: Aug 18, 2018

Filmed by Drone camera and movie cameras by our friends at Nupolitan Recorded to 2 track. By Dave Onnen.

Music Performed: “Scythian Funeral”

Conditions that day: Overcast from the smoke of the fires up North in Canada.

Miscellaneous:  We were giving tours of both sites. Amazingly we were able to see the inside and the basement of the pyramid.  What was revealed to us was a  hellish post apocalyptic vision of the future that once was. A vision somewhere between Tarkovsky’s Stalker or Alien.

Comets giveth and comets taketh away.
