After three years of mental purgatory and dwelling in the sewers of the netherworld, OPIUM WARLORDS return to life. We Meditate Under the Pussy in the Sky is a daring and demanding glimpse of one person’s private hell/heaven, but because of its un-belonging quality, it also deals with the layers of human life that we all share: the primal elements that are the same in all of us.
Instead of being bound to one tradition or context, this music is global in a pure and un-degenerated sense of the word, and is meant to be heard by everyone – beyond all the scenes, groups, and genres – who has sensitivity, courage, and willingness to open up their hearts and souls and to literally gaze at and (to be precise) to become one with extreme light and darkness. It is an invitation to worlds inside the artist, but also the listener himself/herself.
Phobos and Deimos, Fear and Dread, are the moons of Mars, The God of War. Imagine what kind of cosmic music might vibrate from there to our Earth? Even if not perhaps “entertainment” per se, it may open up gateways to a different kind of luxuries of leisure, relaxation, and self-consciousness, if you just allow it to access your life.
