The Storm began out of a concept that from a few choices, actions are set into motion that culminates into a massive force that cannot be stopped. It will eventually reach a climax and then will resolve while leaving nothing but destruction in its wake.

This piece materialized out of a couple of simple guitar chords and a very gradual/very powerful build. From there, multiple field recordings of local thunderstorms, shortwave radios, bad cabling futzing out, morse codes, and a host of additional outboard gear rounded out the primary structure.

Chad Seiter was gracious enough to sit down and write out a beautiful cello part and Brian Cachia busted out some powerful beats to augment some of the drum programming.
