Bandcamp. If you've heard of it you'll know why we are using it! If you've not heard of it you'll thank us for telling you!

Can you imagine a website where bands can upload full resolution audio files (.aiff) and you can chose what type of format your download is, and there's a minimum of third party overheads reducing the band's income.

Imagine no more because that's what Bandcamp is. By starting with the highest possible quality source, they’re able to convert our tracks into a bunch of different format and quality combinations for you to listen to, including MP3 (320, VBR V0), Ogg Vorbis, Apple Lossless, FLAC and AAC (aka .m4a or iTunes store format)

You can see why we have chosen bandcamp as our supply partner for our downloads.

Having said that In the days of our demo recordings the facilities available to up-coming bands were rather basic compared to this century!

The demo tracks were mostly recorded on a cassette based "portastudio" or in some cases directly off the sound desk at gigs but this also imbues the tracks with a certain 'patina', which given their 30+ years age is quite fitting, so please understand that these are not modern recording studio quality. We're currently leaving the tracks open for streaming so you can hear what you are getting before buying!

Paul

Paul MackieIt sounds how it is for me, Imperialistic, dramatic, haunting and a whole lot more. I love the conclusion of XXV with this gargantuan arrangement. It challenges our fears, it begs disbelief. 

Can this actually happen? 

On many levels it is happening now, so who is to say that we are not due and deserve such a drastic clear out.

Our tiny Blue Orb deserves more than what we give her and perhaps we take one last look at one another and ask…. 

What can I do? How can I help?

And finally… I am sorry my friend…

 

 Graeme

Graeme Murray.....The Unmakers Awake! 25 Crystal domes rise from the seabed. These are the terraforming machines that the Atlanteans used to prepare for seeding the Earth. 

Now they start to absorb the atmosphere and as the air thins the sky turns a violet colour, and the end is nigh…I think this is a fitting climax to XXV. 

Paul’s performance on the closing vocal piece is superb. The closing line the vocal was done in one take and is a stunning piece of vocal prowess. And the final treat for Pallas fans is a reprise of Neil’s famous “why did you cut it so short ” guitar solo in the Rise and Fall from the Sentinel album. 

This time Neil wasn’t cut off in his prime, and the guitar source to climax, before Pandy’s gorgeous operatic voice brings this epic album to a close.

I am immensely proud of XXV and feel that we have produced one of the finest and most cohesive Pallas albums ever. I hope some of you agree with me, and hope that all of you enjoy the album.

I hope my explanation of the thinking going on behind the lyric writing helps to give you a deeper insight into the album. Cheers !

Ronnie BrownDramatic, cinematic, Pallas. The end of the world as you’d expect it to be played.

 

 

 

 

 

Niall

Niall MatthewsonIt was great fun being given the chance to create the final battle of mankind with the Sentinel. I have always wanted to have an album of songs that had linking pieces running all the way through.

I particularly love Paul’s soaring vocals on this. Just in case you don’t notice, the guitar solo at the end of this track is a reworking of the original solo from “Rise and Fall” on the “Sentinel” album.

I am very proud of this album. Making a Pallas album is a mixture of ups and downs, joy and sadness, frustration and satisfaction. It’s hard work but so worth it. 

It’s an honour to work with these guys. 

 

Colin

Colin FraserGreat end to the album. A “conclusion” if you like to the story. A chance for me to open up a bit and throw in some nice fills.

Done in a couple of takes, I am happy with the looseness of the drum part and the immediacy of the feel. 

 

 

 

 

Lyrics

All that you are 

All you have done

Will now unravel

The countdown has begun

Take one last look

At all your mistakes

All of your triumphs 

Now seem out of place

For this is my mission and your destiny

So lift up your eyes and look to the sea

 

The Unmakers awake
