    After putting eight 2-disc sets up for sale on 3/14, seven of them sold out within 12 hours, the last one sold after 6. So for 4/20, I'm putting up eight times that amount up for sale. I'm selling 64 sets of The Ilusen's Fallacy up for sale for 4/20, a date that bears all kinds of significance.

    Each disk was handmade by myself, and each set comes with both discs in a jewel case.

    If you have any special requests for your purchase, feel free to leave them in a message.

  • Cassette + Digital Album

    For this year's 8/8, the birthdate of The Ilusen's Fallacy, we're proud to announce The Ilusen's Fallacy's "Green Tapes"! Each copy is The Ilusen's Fallacy placed onto a 90 minute lustrous, shimmering green cassette tape. Every tape contains mastered audio, was self-recorded, and was homeprinted by Keegan Ostrowski himself.

    Another very important announcement we have is new member, Marco Minnemann, on the drums! Featured in Necrophagist, Metalocalypse, The Aristocrats, self-performance, and much more, Marco has accepted to join together with Keegan to bring forth a solidly engineered publication of chaos. Coming 8/8/18, the redux of The Ilusen's Fallacy will arrive to replace the current demonstration you hear before you.

    Finally, in celebration of this year's 8/8, we're bringing everything down from $16 to $8. Anyone who has paid more than $8, shows support, or has shown support before 8/8/18 will get a free copy of the redux coming next year, along with something very special.

about

Icarus is a song written by Marie McAuliffe. In 2014, Keegan took a very heavy interest in this song when it was just maturing into something big while Marie was emptying her folder of GuitarPro files. Upon getting hold of the song file, Keegan augmented into and changed it, until he managed to make it into what you hear before you.

The lyrics are talking about the classic tale of Icarus, with the twist that the Son of Daedalus is creating a symphony, or a play, that is incredibly out of reach from any artist he brings it to, no matter how knowledgeable of a wizard, until he finally plunges into frustration and insanity.

lyrics

Confined by some imaginary barrier played by people of today.
I will be the one to overcome this, the man to change this ordinance.

With my wings made out of wax and feathers.
I will,
Take flight,
And rise.
Above everyone else, UNSTABLE.
I soared, so high, my wings, would melt
Until I crashed into the sea...

Burn.
Fall.
Restrained like everyone else, by what you can play.

Determined to, create, an
Incredible masterpiece,
Unmatched, superlative,
Something too intense,
Nonpareil.
No one to help.
The masters are all perplexed, I took too deep a delve.

I am trapped.

I am powerless.

Once, ages ago, I was
Committed to, create, an
Incredible craftsmanship,
Unmatched, a paragon,
Something too extreme,
Unplayable
No one to help, I'm in Hell.
Every maven that I asked, couldn't parallel,
I had failed.
