A B O U T M E / W E L C O M E T O A U G U S T W I L L D E C A Y . C O M

I have, for as long as I can remember, have had a creative / artistic side that needed to get out.  Having experienced many things in my life which caused me to gain a rather different perspective on things than my peers I began to express myself through poetry.  In the beginning there were three of us going by the name of Disobedience, we were young, angry (especially me) and determined to make any sort of music we could on that dirt floor in the basement practice area we jammed in.

After some time things just kind of tapered off we got jobs, finished school and kind of moved on with life.  However I continued to create and develop my style as a solo artist going first under the name of King9ine.  This name was taken up by another band calling themselves King Nine (which I also used this variant too long ago) but just as well I needed to start a new chapter in my life after a period of very tough emotional times which came to a head in August 2013.

I was in a slump, possibly the lowest point in my life and I sat down and wrote a poem called August Will Decay.  That is how I felt, that during that terrible month of August I would decay. (My emotional state anyway) And I guess to a certain extent it did.  I was forever changed by the events that followed and I have come to realize that I will only ever have this one life to live and with that life I can choose to sit around writing sad poems which would turn into the occasional song or I can really try and put some effort into showing the world who I am, what I am made of, what I have been through, my hopes, thoughts, beliefs, and failures through music which I hope some people can relate to.

I am living currently in this new chapter of my life where I have decided not only will I make this effort to show people my music but I will make it an obsession to achieve.  I have been sitting on dozens of song for the last 15 years that I have unearthed and polished up the best I can and I have released some EP’s which showcase some old songs but also some new songs.

I am going to keep making my heart speak through music and this website is just another effort in this chapter in my life to make my voice heard.  And while I could never thank the people in my life that have caused me endless pain I can at least say that they have inspired me.  Driven me.  And pushed me to further succeed beyond, hopefully what I even think is possible.

August Will Decay is an honest expression of raw emotion good bad or indifferent we all have emotions I am not afraid to voice mine.

A shade of hope
By: Shawn D. Petrie (6-19-2004)


I rub my eyes, I need sleep
A dive into a peaceful dream
Without rejection, tears and pain
A perfect place in my brain
A world where people, truly care
And you can count on them to keep you near
Common is security, a safe tomorrow
No debt to pay, for the smiles I’ve borrowed

A shade of hope, I can see
It helps me cope, it helps me breath
It pulls me closer, to my dream
Pushes me when, I forget to believe
We all must want to make this real
Take actions on the things we feel
Rise above pain and hate
Never believe that it’s too late

But I’m still alone, who else cares
Who else dreams of that place out there
Who else wants this world of new
Who else wants to make it true
Light through my window is shining on me
Through my front door I awake to see
We have been given, one more chance
To create true harmony, the perfect dance

To make a change, to make it last
Move away from our painful past
Pull ourselves closer to a better day
Learn from what history has to say
I step into, this new day
I try to put those dreams away
And focus on what can be done
To create a life where we all have won

At his year’s Rock And Shock Convention I came across a skillfully designed display of a graphic novel.  The story is a no holds barred alternative interpretation of the classic tale of the resurrection of Jesus.  (He is back and he is MAD AS HELL!)
I got my copy signed my the writer and creator Sam Miserendino, His passion for his art is genuine and I recommend this graphic novel to anyone who loves HORROR and GRAPHIC NOVELS.

If you have not made the leap into your first graphic novel yet and you love horror this is the graphic novel I suggest you start with. -Shawn D. Petrie (August Will Decay)

“Prince of Pieces, a graphic novel by Sam Miserendino, takes a dark, satirical look at the return of Jesus.” -Sam Miserendino

FAN BOY COMICS REVIEWS PRINCE OF PIECES:

www.fanboycomics.net

“So, Jesus had a pretty rough go of it. Begat by Mary and the Holy Spirit, he suffered and died for the people who killed him, allowing people into the kingdom of Heaven.  And, what do we reward this sacrifice with?  The world is . . . pretty awful in certain places, and sometimes in the very churches built-in his name.  So, what if Jesus . . . got fed up?  That’s the idea behind Creator’s Edge’s release, Prince of Pieces. Jesus comes back with a vengeance…” READ MORE

COMIX BREW REVIEWS PRINCE OF PIECES:

www.comixbrew.net

“For two thousand years Christians and those who claim to be Christians have be transubstantiating wine and bread into the body and blood of Jesus. Consuming his flesh in order to secure a place for themselves in the kingdom of heaven. But, what if over the course of two thousand years, Jesus was sick of having his body and blood treated as some kind of gateway into the afterlife.

What if he’d suffered enough and wanted to come back for his vengeance. That is exactly the premise of Prince of Pieces, an original graphic novel written by Sam Miserendino, and drawn by Colin Blanton, published by Creator’s Edge Press…”READ MORE

ART VOICE REVIEWS PRINCE OF PIECES:

www.artvoice.com

“For two thousand years, we’ve been eating His flesh and drinking His blood…now it’s His turn” is just one of the lines in Prince of Pieces that made me stop and laugh out loud. This text comes at you like a marvelously effective 70s horror flick, full of groaners and knowing eye-rolls.

It is a colorful, satirical romp that is sure to cause sputtering and gasping in anyone who is put off by the idea of a little blasphemy…” READ MORE

HORROR NOVEL REVIEWS PRINCE OF PIECES:

horrornovelreviews.com

“Prince of Pieces isn’t a book for the overly sensitive, or dedicated bible-thumper. In fact, those who fall into either category are probably going to declare author Sam Miserendino the second coming of Satan himself. And that’s alright, because the truth is, that’s kind of the effect Sam is going for.

He wrote this – I would wager – with two separate agendas in mind. First, there’s no doubt he aimed to poke fun at those who fall under the spell of the religious swindler, and second he seems to have set out to blatantly offend those who invest every ounce of their being in a deity that we can neither see, nor physically feel…” READ MORE

HORROR CABIN REVIEWS PRINCE OF PIECES:

horrorcabin.com

“If I started a review with a fanboy like, enthusiastic outbreak such as “OMG YOU HAVE TO BUY THIS. IT IS AWESOME”, it would make me appear as an immature, unprofessional jackass. With that being said, “Prince of Pieces” makes me say “OMG YOU HAVE TO BUY THIS. IT IS AWESOME”.

Written and created by Sam Miserendino and with art from Colin Blanton, “Prince of Pieces” is about Jesus. Yes, THAT Jesus. But he’s pissed off at the hypocrisy his name stands for and he’s not taking it any longer…” READ MORE

INDIE COMIX REVIEWS PRINCE OF PIECES:

http://www.indiecomix.net

“Never have I ever experienced suspense, a serious amount of anger, and the urge to vomit at different points in the span of minutes while reading one comic book. And Prince of Pieces has certainly managed to accomplish that. Those that have likely already read this know full well what I’m talking about too.

Creator’s Edge is known for doing some pretty crazy stuff, but good Lord does this take the freaking cake here. Colin knows how to create some real creepy and outright disgusting characters that all fit perfectly in this book. People you know right off the bat you can’t trust at all. His colors help a lot in that too.

This book takes a crack at pervy preachers, preachers that are seemingly in it for the money, the saps who buy into it, and horny teenagers.
And it does that crack really well too, even while Jesus is out and about doing horrible things to people. Sam seriously must have reached into some deep part of him that was screwed up with equally screwed up views on Christianity to deliver the story we see here…” READ MORE

TALKS ABOUT PRINCE OF PIECES READ THE FULL ARTICLE HERE:

“…in the comic book Prince of Pieces, an irate Jesus comes back to punish people by turning them into pillars of salt and eating their flesh, beef jerky-style. As one character says, “For 2000 years we’ve been eating His flesh and drinking His blood. Now, it’s His turn.”

There’s even an Uncyclopedia entry detailing what Zombie Jesus said unto the masses: “Braaaiiins … braaaiiinnnss … braaaaiinss!” It also includes the killer line, “He died for your sins. Now he’s back for your brains…” READ MORE
