THE HEALING PROCESS
Label: Milled Pavement Records
Reclusive Milled Pavement artist Nomar Slevik is releasing his new album, auspiciously enough, on Halloween, October 31st, 2012. The humor has not been lost on anyone who has followed the zigs and zags of Slevik and his front-facing endeavors. This new release, entitled "The Healing Process" will be available physically on vinyl and digitally at all major music retail sites via Milled Pavement Records.
The first question is perhaps the most important… what has caused this resurfacing? Since last year's "In the Field Where I Died," Slevik has largely been silent, as he has spent the lion's share of his time hunting supernatural entities and trying to outsmart Sasquatch. The answer is simple: Nomar Slevik reports the news, and he is ready to file a story. Where exactly he is reporting from is a little less clear. It would appear that the world he refers to is indeed our own, yet his view is distorted enough to make us wonder, if for just a moment.
Nomar Slevik, while not the most visible of Milled Pavement's artists, is easily one of its elder statesmen. He boasts 19 releases in his career thus far and, despite the ever-present call of hunting the paranormal, shows no sign of slowing his roll. His rhymes are powered by a disarming amount of self-deprecation, honesty, and emotional delivery, and it is this that has caused recognition and respect throughout his community of peers, as well as his ever-increasing audiences.
"...maybe it's about surviving the inevitable downfall of a country that gambled its way to world supremacy
and failed. Now we're all on the same level, and Nomar Slevik offers the soundtrack to a dying world. It's
nice to hear a derivative that is so unfamiliar it sounds strange, and yet welcoming."

"...what he offers up is hip hop with one foot firmly planted in the dusty old school while the other probes
into the future, creating the unique vibe that accompanies his often oddly conceptual music."
