My first concept noise album אֵלִיָּהוּ (Elijah) is a new breed: an intense investigation into the paradigm-shattering interweaving of ancient revelation and modern harsh noise. The Old Testament prophet Elijah’s dramatic and infamous confrontation with the 450 prophets of the storm-god Baal, followed by his unique encounter with the Lord God Yahweh, proves fertile territory for a diverse and blistering sonic tapestry. This is noise for the faithful few, for those who refuse to bow to the cultural idols of the day!
In addition, I will be posting here a series of short articles about the making of the album, including track-by-track notes; the schedule of these articles is listed below.
