The parasite hangs your face, next to so many others, on the walls of his dirty room and then welcomes you. He stands, while you stay seated on the floor, unsure what you should be doing. His huge hands creep under your arms and he lifts you to standing as if you were a child, and then throws his flabby arms around your neck. His meaty flesh pushes your face into his sweaty neck and the tears come, first his, then yours. He promises you a place so filled with rapture that you will never be sad again. A place at his side. A place, he says, that he can only show to those that are willing to receive. He discovered it inside of himself while he slept and soon realized he could take others there with him. People like you. His skin is hot to the touch and sweat is pouring from you both. You are under his protection…

Amae, at the time of this recording was: Chris Boat, Bill Hatfield, Aaron Frale, Felicia Karas, Scott Bryan.
So this was a bit of a mess to make, but the final product is awesome! I decided to take it a little easy in April and expand an old Spiral song. I've always thought the track "A Parasite's Guide to Rewriting History could have been so much more and I figured now was the time. What I thought would be quick turned into a monster! Bill and I kept adding layer after layer until this thing was a huge slab of sound! Most of the recording was done in April followed by some brutal mixing in May. This thing was hard to get balanced, but in the end I think the mix came out really well! So, here it is, A revisit to the Parasite. Play it loud (especially for this one)!
