In the beginning, there was darkness. From that darkness, Unholy Triforce manifested.
The Legend of Unholy Triforce is a quasi-codex translated through audio waveforms physically cut into the shimmering surface of recycled laserdiscs, each containing an original visual document which has been rendered useless by the transformative nature of the new content.
Featuring 3 locked grooves on the A side and a single unsettling track on the reverse, TLoUT is the most straightforward proclamation by UNHOLY TRIFORCE since their inception, yet it remains shrouded in their trademark mystery and total lack of conventions. Pounding timpani and hellish horns create a abrasive rhythm while an inhuman voice recites the prose imprinted onto the medium, detailing the mythos and origins of UNHOLY TRIFORCE as both an entity and an idea. Cut in mono at 33.3 revolutions per minute using an antique machine, TLoUT is simultaneously low-fidelity and high impact, with a pervasive dissonance and grinding tension that seeks to overwhelm the listener until the very last second.
Notice: Due to the hand-made nature of lathe cut records, the fidelity & consistency of each copy will vary slightly. An assortment of audio ailments such as dropouts, warble, pitch-bending, static, crackle, hiss & extreme frequency shifting are to be expected, and all flaws which may arise are entirely condoned as adding cohesion to the release concept.
