schizophrenia, and God’s identity crisis. The album unites sound samples from extreme Evangelical Christians and practicing initiates of the occult while placing the listener somewhere in the midst of a battle raging between God and Satan; who ultimately must be the same being. One record housing two polar opposites. Featured throughout the recording is a narrative by Brother Stair of the Overcomer Ministries, based in a South Carolina compound similar to that of the Branch Davidians. This man claims to be the last day prophet of god–the next best thing to having god on the album. Brother Stair broadcasts 24 hours a day to warn any listener of what he believes to be the end of the world. Countering the extreme intensity of this man are segments of Anton Levay, Texe Marrs, Freeman, audio diaries from schizophrenic patients with multiple
personalities, and a grimoire of subliminal messages throughout the recording. This album is a seemless blend of live instrumentation, including vintage synths, percusion, bass pads, and sample-based rhythms. The majority of these samples are from obscure european prog rock albums from the 60’s and 70’s to pay tribute to the style the album is fashioned after. The album is recorded and mixed on
pirated software that is the same used in today’s state of the art studios. Other equipment features vintage samplers such as the SP-1200, MPC2000XL, SP202, tape echo, and much more digital equipment of today’s electronic age.
