Conner remarked that another, non-metal musical project was in the works,  later revealed to be called Nocturnal Poisoning, named after his album.
On September 30,Conner released the first and only music video to date under the Xasthur name, for the song "Walker of Dissonant Worlds" from the To Violate the Oblivious album. On March 5,Conner announced on the official Nocturnal Poisoning Facebook page that the band were reverting to the name Xasthur. In reclaiming the name, he said: "For five years, Nocturnal Poisoning was locked out and denied every opportunity or open door that Xasthur used to have, or would've had.

On September 4, the title for the next Xasthur album was announced as Subject to Change ;  it was released May 6, by Disharmonic Variations. Conner has noted other one-man black metal projects such as Burzum and Graveland  as an inspiration for his singular approach: "The main way that Burzum inspired me contrary to popular belief was that he could do it all on his own-- why couldn't I?
Conner has toured with Sunn O and has joined Nachtmystium onstage,  but until recently, stated that he "will always keep Xasthur a band that will not play live".

He offers two lengthy new songs of Xasthur Leviathan Xasthur Leviathan Split and a half and eight and a half minutes. Drums have a minimal presence and the pace is slow with plenty of synthesizer music to provide the twists and turns, but this time he never gets totally lost in Willie Bobo Bobo soundscapes.
The vocals are as anguished as always, once again putting the young Varg to shame. The music is not a maelstrom.
