KSCOPE284-300The Norwegian progressive art rockers describe it as “the most complicated and strange album we’ve ever made” and say it was inspired by the discovery of an old manuscript in the home of keyboardist Thomas Anderson’s father’s friends.

Gazpacho explain: “The manuscript contained various ramblings and diagrams which formed the basis of a diary of sorts. The unknown author claimed to have discovered the source of what he called an evil presence in the world.

“This presence, ‘The Demon,’ was an actual intelligent will, with no mercy and a desire for evil things to happen. The author wrote as if he had lived for thousands of years stalking this presence, and the manuscript included references to outdated branches of mathematics, pagan religions and an eyewitness account of the bubonic plague.

“The thought of this mysterious figure who had lived through the ages hunting the ‘Demon’ seemed like too good an idea not to write about.

“The story is told in four parts, ending with the last words of the unfinished manuscript, written just before the disappearance of the unknown writer.”
