about

"Modular synthesist Dave Skipper's first concept noise album is an intense investigation into the paradigm-shattering interweaving of ancient revelation and modern harsh noise. The Old Testament prophet Elijah’s dramatic and infamous confrontation with the 450 prophets of the storm-god Baal, followed by his unique encounter with the Lord God Yahweh, proves fertile territory for a diverse and blistering sonic tapestry. This is noise for the faithful few, for those who refuse to bow to the cultural idols of the day!"
Based on the story of Elijah from 1 Kings 18-19
