We are very happy to present you our first collaboration with the constantly transforming orchestra by Aidan Baker and Eric Quach.
The lineup of this Hypnodrone Ensemble features Aidan, Eric and Kristin Sebastian, Jérémie Mortier and Angela Muñoz Martínez on drums. So imagine how impulsive this two guitars / three drums combo is on stage. We first saw this lineup in cologne on Halloween 2019 (all pictures used for the tape are from that show, thanks to Mockie Knippser). The energy that comes from three drums who are playing synchronously conjuncted by massive guitar drones is absolutely breathtaking and brings your body automatically in motion.
So we were very happy that two days later the show at N9 in Eeklo (Belgium) was recorded, so we had the chance to archive this tour line-up on tape. The recording is a mix of a soundboard recording and the direct recording by Eric Quach on stage. All sounds got mixed and mastered by Eric Quach to get the best “it´s happening right now” feeling, when you listen to the tape.
The tapes are limited to 80 copies and come in full printed o-card sleeves and with onbody prints on both sides of the recycled grey tape shells.

The original plan was to have those tapes ready for the next Hypnodrone Ensemble tour, to have something new at the merch table. But the situation turned very impulsive so we had to act impulsive, too: All proceeds of the tape sales will go to the band and we will just cover our expenses. Plus all digital sales of the album will go directly to the band. If you have some money to spend, please support this release, it will help. It will also help if you share the news about the new tape. Thanks anyway for your support in this strange times.
