11 tracks 60 minutes. Deluxe double vinyl gatefold issue of Hella's 2007 debut. The first album to feature the new expanded five member line-up. Full-on super-prog madness. Edition of 1000, 750 on black vinyl and 250 copies on black/orange vinyl. Double 180gm album, gatefold sleeve, lyric insert.
So you think you know Hella? Spencer Seim (guitar) and Zach Hill (drums) - the Sacramento, CA duo with over 10 releases under their belt? Well, think again. 2007 saw the reincarnation of Hella as a five piece and the CD release of There's No 666 In Outer Space on Ipecac Recordings. Now Black Diamond brings you the super-deluxe double vinyl!
Interestingly, two of the new members aren't new faces to either Spencer or Zach, as both guitarist Josh Hill (Zach's cousin) and bassist Carson McWhirter were in a pre-Hella band alongside the aforementioned duo. However, when finding a singer led to a dead end, the quartet went their separate ways, and the two-man version of Hella was launched. But upon recently finding Nevada City-based butcher-come-singer Aaron Ross, Spencer and Zach knew that the time was right for a multi-member Hella line-up. Rest assured, the addition of new members has certainly not taken away from the group's precision sound - it only expands on it.
While the album's mysterious title can be interpreted in different ways, Zach, who came up with the title, sheds some light. It means what it says - it's putting things in perspective as far as, you can relate it to anything - the cycle of how things get carried away and how the 'mob mentality' happens. When you can put it in a different light, how ridiculous it all seems - how petty and miniscule everything is, in the concept of the universe or space. How things evolve into such a massive brainwash - whether you're a right wing conservative or an anarchist - all these ideas that don't exist anywhere else.
