“THERE IS NO EARTH I WILL LEAVE UNSCORCHED” will NOT be sent out to any media outlets whatsoever. It is not important to me anymore. I do not create music for the media, I do not care about reviews and I do not care about exposure that automatically comes with sending your material out to Internet websites and paper magazines. It is of no importance to me in any way, shape or form. I create this becoz I have to. You guys, through your donations, make it possible to present it in the best way possible.
So, if you want to experience this 80 minute mammoth – you do the right thing and purchase the digital download. Yes, digital only. And this digital download comes in two versions: one as it’s supposed to be and one that is instrumental, as a bonus. You’ll get it in:
High quality mp3’s. And there will be a Full Dynamic HD mix (FLAC) version in there as well. We used to have a WAV option too, but it’s no longer needed, obviously. You’ll also get a complete digital booklet and a separate file intended for burning the material to a CD if you wanna make your own disc right away. About the FLAC version, here’s Dan Swanö explaining a few things for ya:
“- About the Full Dynamic Lossless Audio (FLAC) version. Since the TPH album is jam-packed with frequencies from the deepest depths to the highest highs and layers of various instruments, all with their own unique dynamic content, I felt obliged to present the mix as I heard it, before I put it through the limiter to push it up to the louder levels of the CD standard (A completely unnecessary and stupid process invented by deaf record label executives… that robs the mix of punch and width, and then the MP3 process steal some more). So if you wanna hear the album in its full glory, for the price of turning the volume up on your device a few more steps… please do!! Why not listen to it in good quality headphones, and just sit back and enter the diabolical realms of TPH in sonic 4K resolution!!!”
I thank Mr. Swanö for making that clear to everyone. We have also decided to NOT be a part of the shameful “loudness war” with the high-res MP3 versions (full and instrumental) of the album, becoz we want to minimize the loss of frequencies and whatnot. So you will experience a more balanced volume with this and will prolly need to crank the volume up a little more than if you’re playing the, f.e, abomination called “Death Magnetic” by Metallica, where shit is distorted and way too loud, aka sounds like utter… well… shit. Brick wall mastering is something we wanted no part of with “THERE IS NO EARTH I WILL LEAVE UNSCORCHED”. We want this monster to breathe, and eventually you will understand why. And you will thank us for it.
By getting this album directly from me you’re not only supporting something that’s taken 2 years to complete, you’re also showing that art deserves to be bought. And you’ll have a lifetime of discovering everything that comes with this beast. That will be needed, I guarantee it.
