The Singularity, Phase I by Thisquietarmy x Away

Thisquietarmy X Away : The singularity, Phase I

The first collaborative sci-fi drone metal album from Thisquietarmy (Eric Quach) and Michel “Away” Langevin of Voïvod. The two world travellers secretly recorded hours of music together, and this is only phase one. 500 copies pressed on neon blue vinyl. Heavyweight 24pt flip side jacket with printed inner sleeve and mysterious spot matte varnish. Comes with an Away glow-in-the-dark silkscreen art print and a postcard

We’ve been fans of these two musicians/artists/road warriors for years, collecting their records and following their respective crusades. So, it’s with honour and delight that we’ve finally found the right time and project to collaborate on. Out of this world music for a truly strange year. Powerful slow-build metal over blissful sonic-drone-dreamscapes, summoning images of the future. The only official release of the year for P572, it’s a reminder that no matter how bizarre things get, there’s always important music to hear. You can listen to your vinyl in the dark and see the artwork glow by your side.

P572 présente le premier album Sci-fi-drone-metal en duo pour Thisquietarmy (Eric Quach) et Michel « Away » Langevin de Voïvod. Les deux explorateurs ont secrètement enregistré des heures de musique ensemble et on vous présente la première phase : 500 exemplaires vinyles pressés en bleu néon. La pochette est sur carton épais 24pts, avec un vernis sélectif mystérieux et un sleeve intérieur imprimé. Le tout inclut une sérigraphie «glow-in-the-dark» de Away et une carte postale.

Nous collectionnons depuis des années les disques et les livres de ces deux artistes exceptionnels. C’est donc avec honneur que nous trouvons enfin le bon moment et le bon projet pour collaborer ensemble. De la musique interstellaire pour une année terrestre étrange. Du métal puissant, lentement construit sur des paysages de drones-soniques invoquant des images du futur. La seule sortie de l’automne pour P572 est un rappel que peu importe ce qui nous arrive, il y a toujours de la musique importante à écouter.

« It’s a very strange year, so we needed to make an extraordinary vinyl release. There were a lot of noise and images and we had to make sense of it all somehow. We listened to the music in a loop and envisioned something that would equally represent the duo visually and sonically. We came up with the idea of a flip side jacket cover, meaning both sides can be the front and the back of the record. I see the drawing by Eric, with the guitar and the drums, as the electrical metamorphosis that happened in the recording studio. While the Kaiju picture by Michel is them looking at the result of that uncontrollable symphonic mutation. The glow-in-the-dark silkscreen print and the gloomy postcards are dreamlike snapshots of this weird world they created together. I think both Thisquietarmy and Voïvod fans will be fascinated by such a special packaging that you rarely see on such a short run of vinyls. » – Sam Murdock

“The Singularity, Phase I is a fascinating offering and one that is going to keep listeners excited and coming back for more. Which makes it all the more encouraging to hear that this duo have hours of music in the bank. Stripped down but potent, this is an album that will drone its way into your heart. It continually finds new ways to be oddly reassuring even in the face of strife. What more could you want from these masters of the craft?” – Two Angry Guys Metal Reviews
