FESTIVAL OF THE DEAD NOTES

CUT HANDS
FESTIVAL OF THE DEAD
album notes

The Claw  
based on a powerful modern visualisation spell

I Know What I Must Do  
originally composed for a traditional Greek music project I was working on

Damballah 58  
after spending months working and imagining beats like this without getting anywhere, suddenly and with great relief, the theme appeared from nowhere as if from the heavens

Parataxic Distortion

Festival Of The Dead
the basic beat came out of the blue one night and I made several very different versions of this title track, the mood of this one seemed to fit in best with the record

Belladonna Theme  
music from the documentary film about superstar porn actress Belladonna

Vaudou Take Me High  
original version of this was nearly twenty minutes long!

Inlightenment  
this is a sister piece to Impassion and Inchantment from previous releases, hence the unusual spelling

None Of Your Bones Are Broken
inspired after watching the same incredible film three times consecutively, if you’ve seen it you’ll know which it is

Madwoman (Festival Remix)  
after trying out all sorts of Madwoman variations in a live setting, this one had the type of sound that best seemed to work

Fruit Is Ripe  
originally written for a soundtrack (sadly never used)

Fire Ends The Day  
currently working on a lot more of this type of sound

FESTIVAL OF THE DEAD



















The new records landed today, really happy with how they came out and I have a lot of people to thank for making that possible. It's out on vinyl and CD and you can get it direct from Blackest Ever Black not to mention all the other great record retailers that there are nowadays.
I do have a handful of each version here as well, let me know if you'd like it signed.
2xLP version including shipping: UK £20 / non-UK $40 (USD)
CD version including shipping: UK £12 / non-UK $20 (USD)
PayPal is the usual susanlawly@freeuk.com
Shipping costs these days are criminally expensive, so apologies for that.
You can hear The Claw at SoundCloud.
