--- Below you may find the text that was part of the liner notes, explaining this piece.

<<<This excerpt features the beginning of a longer piece of 70 minutes (supposed to be released sooner or later). It was recorded and mixed back on the 25th and 26th January 2006, during the sessions who gave birth to the KOMMPOUND entity.

It happened during one of the rare occurences of snowfall at the Athenian suburbs, isolated at home with wood and weed to burn. The audio sources utilized were my fireplace (inkluding its poker&tongs), the winterwinds, as well as my girlfriend's accoustic guitar.

The first person that has ever heard this, almost live as it was rekorded, was my brother mKm from supreme french blackmetal unit ANTAEUS. At this moment of time, it was agreed that He would provide the vokills/lyriks to the projekt. His kontribution was eventually aborted but I still have not lost hope to use his services for a future KOMMPOUND session.

As far as the title goes, it has been taken from a chapter of www.jesusneverexisted.com, the website & its companion book. It can be found online at: www.jesusneverexisted.com/melange.html. This superb website is truly enlightening & provides the historikal & theologikal background to the formation of the worst disaster in human history: christianity. I was reading the book back at the time and I was in a heathen, timeless mood, plus I loved this sentence!>>>

about

KOMMPOUND Αθήνα, Greece

KOMMPOUND use field recordings, samples and sonic manipulation in order to produce soundscapes that lie in the twilight zone between ambient, drone and noise.

The approach is lo-fi and minimal, the aesthetics hopefully inspiring. Eventhough a
lot of material has been tracked until now, only a handful of releases have been public until now-which is something that will soon possibly change.
