Notes

Book Of Truth I Book Of Horizons

Mixed at Forking Paths studio. 'Which is still just the same three microphones and mic pres as the last two records. The laptop is used for remote recording, and we added a more stationary one for mixing/assembling.'

Danny Heifetz's drums recorded at Toast (RIP) in San Francisco.
Ches Smith's drums and Jennifer Cass's harp recorded at Pine Creek Studios in Aptos, Ca.
John Merriman's drums recorded at Bear Creek studios in Felton, Ca.

'Everything else was recorded on location in a hundred different places, and then brought under the microscope at Forking Paths.'

'Exterminationg Angel has a couple Penderecki samples and an Arvo Part sample.'

'Thanks are in order (yet in no particular order), to Pete and Nancy Spruance, Richard Levy for the microtone guitar, Revolver USA for putting up with our shit, Tim Smolens for computer geek advice, Fatima and her whole family for existing, and all the musicians who commit themselves so thoroughly to our project.'

The writing credit for The Indestructible Drop is in scare quotes: "written" by.

A breathtakingingly beautiful album. Every piece is perfect. The orchestra works are dense, dramatic and majestic. The death metal sections are gutteral, brash and powerful. Maybe the heaviest death metal ever recorded. The dynamic between the blast beats, the eastern melodies and the classical works must be heard to be believed. Highly recommended. Can't wait to hear it on vinyl.
