Heirs Of The Fire
smtg 012 - 2009
"Blissed out vocals turn into a choir that rolls off into layers of sound, both electric and acoustic. Heirs Of The Fire is John Twell's sonic interpretation of a quote from the Koran. It's a more melodic and mysterious Xela record than some might expect, but it still holds plenty of darkness. Recorded live in one take using vocals, guitar, and a sampler, this was originally released by the UK artist on CDR before his last US tour. This version of the recording includes drums by Mike Weis (Zelienople) to mimic the live shows he's done with Xela playing this very material. Mastered by James Plotkin (Khanate). Art by Erik Skodvin (Svarte Greiner). Housed in a two color, silkscreened jacket. "
