Introspecter (Part 1), CD

Introspecter (Part 1), CD

12.00

An 8-panel jacket showcasing the beautiful artwork of Peter Vaughn, perfectly evoking the psychological gothic/noir theme of the album. In the sleeve you'll find a mesmerizing booklet of marbled pages, overlayed with lyrics from the album. Remove the disc and only the shadow of the man in the portrait remains.

Introspecter (implying both “one who looks inward” and “a ghost within”) explores the darker side of human nature. Against the backdrop of workaday life, it grapples with those insidious impulses that most of us hide or perhaps refuse to acknowledge altogether.
