Ascension Monuments Media

Ascension Monuments Media

Profile:
Ascension Monuments Media was formed in early 2017 by a group of people - notably including Blake Judd - from the southern Orange County, CA region.

In 2018, Ascension Monuments Media began selling pre-orders for numerous re-releases from Judas Iscariot's discography, falsely claiming they were authorized by the band. Akhenaten has described these records as "disgraceful unauthorized bootlegs". These releases, as well as the Weltmacht releases, are made without consent from Akhenaten, Red Stream, Moribund nor No Colours. The label also sold "Distant in Solitary Night" LPs which were allegedly the rare Sombre Records version, but had a slightly different cover - printed by Blake's former bandmate Jeff Willson - that had a matrix code "MONUMENT000" scratched out on most copies.

AMM has subsequently been banned by PayPal, Bandcamp, and many other outlets for ripping off customers. Blake also owes several artists and labels a significant amount of records and money, in excess of tens of thousands of dollars in worth.

No longer able to sell stock through regular channels, in October 2018 he began using the alias Jake Treush to defraud potential buyers after being banned from many online sales companies such as PayPal and Bandcamp. Furthermore, he claimed to run a completely fabricated company called "Sound Seance", which he claimed was in operation since 2016 in Louisville, Kentucky. He was quickly discovered after a buyer noticed the records from this false company were being shipped from San Juan Capistrano, California, where his scam with AMM was located. Now that he has openly used an assumed identity he has moved beyond ripping off customers to the status of active fraud and wire fraud.

As of December 24, 2018, Blake has created a seller profile under the name "The Underground Apothecary" (TUC666) in an attempt to sell AMM merchandise. He has attempted to word his postings in such a way that it would appear as though it was not Blake selling these items.

As of March 2019, Blake Judd has been pawning off the supposed remaining AMM stock at https://soundscars.com since he has been banned from every reputable music sales site.

How comes that, at the time of this writing, 135 items from this company can still be purchased at Discog's marketplace if abundant proof exists that all (or most of?) their products are illegal?

Pretty sure he’s on eBay now maybe salty water lot of Judas. Bought a leviathan record before I seen he self released it himself. Got the records this time but had to get pay pal to refund the money I spent on band camp. Anyway salty water might not be Blake but he no doubt is in cahoots with him

I ordered the Leviathan picture disc that was supposed to come with a 7" on preorder. Never showed up and they never responded to emails. I finally did a bit of research and found that Blake Judd was behind the label (had no idea when I ordered the records), and filed a claim right away. As soon as I filed a claim they magically had the time to email me. Anyway, I got my money back, and I absolutely never would have ordered in the first place had I known that this worthless fucking junkie was behind the label. Blake Judd is trash. Avoid anything he does.

Anything to do with this smackhead is bad news.
He's not reformed or rehabilitated, he's still a thieving, dishonest junkie.
Avoid anything to do with him.
Illegally download anything he releases with Nachtmystium from now on, just boycott the absolute fuck out of the bastard.

Disgusting label. I paid for two orders, they sent everything in one order, in 7 months. The price difference was not returned, order came without 7".
Never ever! do not respond to letters. The state of the releases themselves is hell!
Never again will I order anything from them. Everything is bad, the label is shit!

Well, I'd say that's definitely an interesting way of 'partnering with a major media outlet to clear you of any wrongdoings' there, Blake!
