Recorded at Doubletime Studios in November 1999. White Vinyl (This): 100 pressed.
This album is nothing but raw sonic artistic expression. Mixing from many genres such as Hardcore Art Rock, Space Rock, and some shoegaze to boot. Spine tingling guitars, synths that siren off like pipe organs from hell, and practically indecipherable vocals. At first listen it seems to be an overwhelming mess of sound, but under close scrutiny and repeated listens it becomes clear that this is carefully controlled chaos. What would first seem to be a monolith of sound, becomes subtle changes in layers and synchronized instrumentation. I kind of wish this style would have rubbed off more, but.

Camera obscura is Latin for "dark chamber. It is the name given to a simple device used to produce images that would lead to the invention of photography. The English word for today's photographic devices is merely a shortening of this name to "camera".
Camera obscura (plural camera obscuras from Latin, meaning "dark room": camera "(vaulted) chamber or room," and obscura "darkened, dark"), also referred to as pinhole image, is the natural optical phenomenon that occurs when an image of a scene at the other side of a screen (or, for instance, a wall) is projected through a small hole in that screen as a reversed and inverted image (left to right and upside down) on a surface opposite to the opening
