My name is JJ Koczan. Born and raised in Northern New Jersey, I currently reside in the town of Parsippany with my wife, The Patient Mrs., and our son, The Pecan. I began The Obelisk in January 2009. I’m solely responsible for all the content herein, and I used to post under the name H.P. Taskmaster because if your name was JJ, you would too. This is a one-man operation and it’s not how I earn my living. I do this because I’m compulsive and because I love the music.

If you are interested in getting in touch, please use the contact form below. If you’re looking to have a release reviewed, I strongly prefer physical media to downloads and kindly ask that you reach out for the address.

Please note: Due to the volume of requests and the fact that I work full-time, I’m not able to immediately answer all the emails that come in. I’ll do my best to get back to you. If all else fails, I can also be reached on Facebook here.
