5-6 years after the first DARGAR album Pete and I eventually got around to doing some more recordings. We started out the same way, with me setting up some fake beats and Pete improvising guitar to the rhythms. I then started editing and looping little pieces of his guitar parts and re-programming beats into songs. But this time I decided to flesh out the songs more with my own parts, so I recorded additional guitars, bass and synths. The results were much more deep, complex and sophisticated than the first album, but still had some of that weird alien quality to them. We did a big batch of songs that way and were really pleased with how things were turning out. I kind of let the songs themselves dictate the direction and they varied from black metal, doom, death metal and post-metal to shoegaze. Sometime later our friend Cory Rowell from DEMONOLOGISTS started hitting us up about a potential split LP. He was a fan of the first album, so we picked these 4 songs out of the batch that we had, feeling like these were the darkest and noisiest of the group and would be the best fit. It took me forever to finally mix and master the songs as Cory shopped the LP around to labels. Eventually this label Whispering Eye agreed to do it. Cory got John Paul Whetzel to do cover art for both bands, and Cory also did the full layout with an insert too. Sadly Whispering Eye ended up folding up shop and the release went into limbo. We were still very proud of the songs so I ended up putting them here on my Bandcamp page. ~Horus
