An excruciatingly complex masterpiece of epic proportions, Herald the Harbinger… contains a timeless narrative of humanity’s inability to overcome in times which demand great sacrifice, continuing the cycle of destruction and rebirth which nature has triumphed over throughout time. With a concept that parallels our modern synthetic society against that of ancient civilization, a storyline cohesive in all eras arises from the ashes of mankind’s self-wrought tragedies.
Two albums worth of material on two appropriately chosen mediums present a high-fidelity compact disc recording of Hail Architeuthis! in their chaotic and crushing live format captured live to vintage 2-track 1/4″ tape, the other a low-fidelity cassette which serves as a multi-dimensional cinematic soundtrack to the accompanying literature.
