This release was limited to 100 copies and came in a hand-assembled full-color gatefold sleeve featuring disturbing cover art by Micaela Petersen.
Two long quartet explorations and two bonus duos featuring trumpet pitted agains bass and drums. Peter Evans' deft trumpet playing has created a new standard. On this set, his command of the most extreme aspects of what the instrument is capable of comes through loud and clear. James Fei is known for his work with Anthony Braxton, but he is a singular voice on the saxophone, concentrating here on precise, hair-raising multiphonics and textural gestures. The restless, violent rhythm section of Smith and Walter keeps things moving in a truly horrific manner.
