Lantern Discography

Lantern has been causing neuralgic pain, with unrelenting negligence of public consensus since 2003.
The project itself is a study of psychosis, and a dismantling of our constructed reality. As Lantern evolved, all inhibitions were lost, and a transmission of energy was exchanged. A new level of being arose. We realized we no longer cared about music. We didn’t want to write structured “songs”, nor did we want to use our instruments conventionally. We used them as the true “instruments” they were; tools that had a direct link to our consciousness, actually ripping the fabric of space-time, tearing down the illusion of the universe.

Spirits were summoned, gods were obliterated, biology was mutated, minivans were destroyed, and giant fires were manifested that reached towards the sky in a graveyard of broken televisions.
We recorded everything, but much of it was lost or destroyed. Below is the bulk of the discography neatly presented for your listening pleasure.

Blood oozing from the ears is a common reaction.

Lantern is: Joseph Henaghan & Bryce Brushnefski    

Lantern Reviews & Articles:

"Judging by Joseph Henaghan's blog, he is something of a musical-project slut, lending a discordant guitar to assist and enable any and all comers. What makes Henaghan unique, in my eyes, is that downloadable evidence of his every creative entanglement surfaces on, that steadfast outpost of random modern obscurity and ubiquity. His motto—“I will make sounds that melt your head”—should tell you everything you need to know, though it is recommended that you give his oeuvre a test drive to get a cursory sense of what he’s capable of.

If you don’t have time for that, just grab the 30-minute long “Pupa,” which Henaghan cut with Bryce Brushnefski, another guitar interrogator of unusual sensitivity and tenderness, as Lantern. The discordant fruits of the duo’s musical union are blowtorch subtle, with a great deal of atonal parry, holler, and heave: sometimes the point seems to be cock (rock)-measuring blunder, sometimes there are wonderfully wrongheaded and tinnitus-enabling attempts to escape Earth’s orbit, sometimes they appear to lose consciousness altogether, and then sometimes both determinedly uncouth axmen seem to be feeling their way blindly through a cruel, unforgiving world free of guideposts, mood stabilizers, and clean amplifier tone."

-Review of Lantern - Pupa on

"New Yorkers Bryce Brushnefski and Joseph Henaghan feed codeine to their de-tuned guitars and stage a prolonged death match so epic, unrelenting, and crude that it'll help you get over the lack of Dead C product this year. These dudes make tons of noise in a slew of other bands and projects that are worth exploring, if this sort of thing is your jeweled chalice of lye."
