‘The Alchemy Paradox’ is a 30 minute DIY release of instrumental postdoom. It was recorded DIY style (badly with minimal recording equipment – warts an all) by the band at Star Trak Studios, Stoke-on-Trent on January the 28th/29th 2013 and captures the bands sound at their rawest form as a trio. The EP was mixed and mastered by Nathan and Tom at The Universal Thrift Club Music Studio, Stoke-on-Trent and you can also read Tom’s recent review HERE.
The EP comprises of 3 post-doom instrumental tracks:
1. Hang the Witch (12:57)
A piece that reflects the journey of emotions going through a long term relationship breakdown. Chaos, loneliness and acceptance.
2. Cosmic Cauldron (13:45)
An old school track that has grown since its inception. The exploration of time, all things funeral and slushiness. The span of life reaching its eventual conclusion a fixed point in time.
3. Black Pyramid (06:08)
The realisation that our lives are controlled by a structure put into place well before our time. Religion, Governments and Credit Systems that fix our boundaries in life. Denial, realisation and then avoidance.
