    It's time for an Uprising.

    Partly inspired by the events of the Egyptian revolution of 2011, the surrounding so called “Arab Spring” and these times of great upheaval, systematic conflict and learned division. Other areas look at US imperial adventures and rabid fetish for violence.

    Is the revolution on the streets, in the mind or both? Where does it need to happen first. The wee guy in the middle is standing perplexed, why are these two sides fighting? where is the fight? he remains centred and un-polarised by this side or that. He is not reacting on cue, not reactionary.

    While they are being sucked into the vortex of madness he stays resolute, he doesn't want to go there and he wont as he's protected within his pyramids IE his non-attached mind.

    The overall theme of the music and cover artwork combines arcane symbology, mysticism, polarity, division and conflict, power and force, revolution, imperialism and more besides. The particularly detailed front & back artwork took months, on and off, and many iterations to bring all the elements together and achieve the right feel and more often than not ideas would reveal themselves along the way.

    Actually quite proud considering I am not an expert visual artist and have very limited ability. So for me, it's quite the accomplishment.

    The music ain't half bad either!
