The music on this CD was captured from a live Via
Sinistrae event: The Tower. Via Sinistrae is a meeting of several different lineages: the
raw shamanic invocation, the structured Western Thelemic tradition, the culture of the
rave or underground dance party and interactive performance art.
verging on noise, stirring vocalizations, and unexpected mutations interact with the
pre-linguistic aspect of the listeners psyche, drawing them into the fold. The music
continually evolves and changes, forming and reflecting the invocation.
True to the spirit of the live ritual, this music demolishes standardized forms and
electrifies the senses.

- Here's a fragment from an independent review of
"The Tower" from Heathen Harvest.
- "Normally Id comment on the fact that there
are nineteen untitled tracks on this release. Normally Id say something scathing
along the lines of lack of imagination. Normally. However, this isnt so
much nineteen untitled tracks, more like one track split into nineteen parts. And as for
lack of imagination, perish the thought, having listened to this a goodly
number of times now a lack of anything just doesnt come into the equation.
As previously stated, this not the sort of release I would choose to listen to, and my
initial thoughts regarding the whole were to say the least, negative. Im glad to say
my preconceptions have been washed away, my views on this style of music completely
upended. Its not very often I can say this about music but in this case Im
happy, very happy to do so. Take this as a high recommendation indeed. Locate and listen
to this release, better yet, locate and attend a live performance should the chance arise.
Not only will you experience something unique and special, youll also make me very,
very envious indeed.
Ive gushed enough over The Tower, what more can I say? I leave it the discerning
music fan to discover for themselves why this so special, and by discerning music fan I
mean everyone. What are you waiting for?"
