This album is really a collection of demos for a concept album I wrote in 2005-2006. Since I'm never going to actually make a polished version of the album, I thought I might as well release it as is.
It's current state is not perfectly in line with the original intention, so I gave it a different name (original name was "Be Still Thy Roots Beneath the Soil"). I probably shouldn't have included track 9... that was sort of a joke. Like a skeleton hand coming out of a grave in the last shot of a movie. Oh well.
Apologies for the rough recording quality and low volume!
The songs on this album were all written in 2005-2006.
The recordings were all made in 2007-2009 (except additional instrumentation on "Death Come Slow" added in 2011 by Isaac Gillespie).
Album was finally compiled and released in 2015.
released February 22, 2015
Patrick McHale did all the music except:
"Death Come Slow":
Patrick McHale: singing, banjo
Isaac Gillespie: everything else
I also used some public domain sound effects here and there.
