The fifth E.P. by, and first ever live documentation of, veterans of "blackened heavy mettā", INTRINSIC LIGHT.
This release is the entirety of INTRINSIC LIGHT's very first ever live performance, which took place at the really quite epic "Shedanigans II" festival/event on the 23rd of April, 2016, at roughly Ten Post Meridiem, although, to be honest, it's all a bit of a blur.
Combining low-fi entheogenic improvisation drone with occasional blossom-bursts of raw necro-fuzzed blackmetal, INTRINSIC LIGHT forces mindfulness mantras straight into the Third Ear, dragging one's spirit simultaneously North of Nirvana and South of Hell.
Recorded by both ZEN TAIT and PAUL KIDNEY - live recordings assembled by ZEN TAIT and A DEMON SHEEN.
Special special thanks to ALYSSA for masterminding the whole event, being so very lovely, and owning the shed. And special special special thanks to everyone who made our very first gig such a rewarding and supportive experience. There will be more!
Note: as the band constantly weaves heavily improvised psychedelia around their distorted drone brutality, the live versions of "This Is Happening Now", "Don't Set Up The Target For The Arrow" and "View Obstacles as Teachers" presented here are very different to the versions that appear on previous releases. The piece "Regard All That Occurs As A Dream" was completely made up on the spot, and may never be played again - who knows? No attachment, no aversion!
