Author and Punisher's 5th full-length album, entitled Melk en Honing was produced by Phil Anselmo (Pantera, Down, Superjoint Ritual) and is a mélange of his various drone machinery together, multiple physical rhythm machines, some synthesizer and the new electromechanical masks that began to appear in A&P performances across the U. S. and Europe in 2014.

After 2 years of heavy touring and festival appearances, the goal with this album became to try and capture the live dissonant power of the A&P experience. The combination of Anselmo's persistence, expertise and some of Shone's new experimentation with various vocal devices, this is a vocal-prominent, bass heavy album that combines A&P's signature elusive drone sequences and hard hitting rhythms with unexpected terrains of melody and musicality that sustain Shone's reputation as an unorthodox innovator in a class all of his own.

Abandoning the typical guitar and drums set up, Author & Punisher makes aggressive rhythmic and oscillatory soundscapes from his own custom fabricated and precision machinery. Designed by Shone himself, the instruments of Author & Punisher are custom devices that begin mostly as big chunks of aluminum and steel that are worked into all manners of wheels, throttles, pedals, and masks to manipulate sound live.
