This great album of heavy post-rock instrumentals somehow passed me by – but for no longer! This is some seriously inventive stuff, jammed full of hard rock goodness with added influences from wider sources. Crank it up.
Favorite track: Your Best Line Of Defence Is Obscurity.
This is an awesome album. The minute i heard a preview i just bought it. John Basset is a rare find and his music is the same. I'm looking forward to his followup Well i got the follow up 11 on day of released signed. Brilliant cd i wasnt dissapointed moving haunting joyfull unbelievable master of writting classics I also enjoyed The 4 Horseman is a masterpeice
supported by 70 fans who also own “Arcade Messiah”
KingBathmat, Arcade Messiah, SΔCRED ΔPE... all of those music projects are essentially John Bassett. On the first album issued under his own name, the music is much more calm and quiet, usually based on acoustic guitar and lush harmony vocals. In this soft context, somewhat in the vein of 70's Pink Floyd, John Bassett's excellent songwriting capabilities can get much better expression than in his harder, noisier projects. The download includes an 8-page booklet in JPEG format. Sven B. Schreiber
