The Fortieth Day "Syria: 638 AD" LP



The Fortieth Day "Syria: 638 AD" LP

Diophantine Discs, 2008

Over the past two years The Fortieth Day has released numerous cassette releases and Diophantine Discs is proud to issue their first LP. "Syria: 630 AD" consists of two 17+ minute compositions of extremely dense, powerful, and brooding tracks tracks, with some absolutely monstrous bass. Comprised of Mark Solotroff (Bloodyminded, Intrinsic Action, and the BloodLust! label) and Isidro Reyes (Bloodyminded), Chicago's The Fortieth Day creates a unique music that is dense and murky, lurking somewhere between the realms of noise, industrial, and ambient. Various recording sessions are processed, re-processed, and mixed together to create the final studio recordings. Live shows also incorporate live real-time video projections by Noise Crush. Previous works include a collaborative cassette with Sshe Retina Stimulants and releases on BloodLust!, ORCO, and Cipher.

Pressed on white vinyl and housed in a silver-printed and laser-cut [die-cut] sleeve. Limited to 300 copies.
