We are once again very excited to reissue some long out-of-print material from another project that we respect and highly regard. This double cassette consists of over one hundreds minutes of droned-out doomy black ambient psych riffage and rumbling. Many listeners (including us) became familiar with this Arizona project led by Michael Bjella through his two most recent releases which were released on Utech Records--MFTRM (Mist From The Random More) and Heavy Fierce Brightness. Unfortunately many of us missed out on the project's earliest releases which were released in ultra-limited quantities by the Sounds of Battle and Souvenir Collecting label. We are really happy to re-release (for a short time) these early releases on high bias chrome tape and as part of one definitive statement.

This release also consists of bonus material from the same time period that wasn't included on any of the original releases. The music on this release is ultimately dynamic, ranging from moments that remind us of the synth black dreamscapes of Envenomist, to other heavier, sludgier, overdriven bleak moments, sometimes propelled forward by primordial drumming. We’ve created some samples of the music for you to hear for yourself. We highly recommend that you pick this release up while you have the chance.
