Producing work that is epic in concept, sound, and artistic approach, Steve Moore and A.E. Paterra, the masterminds and multi-instrumentalists behind Zombi, have re-imagined the architecture of progressive rock and dynamic instrumentals, carving a niche in underground music distinctly their own. The band's signature sound, achieved using only electric bass, drums, and a collection of analog synthesizers, is deceptively lush considering its two man skeleton crew ensemble. Moore's bass playing and meticulous synthesizer programming interacts seamlessly with Paterra's controlled, precision drumming, as if each man is anticipating his counterpart's next move. 'Zombi' and 'Twilight Sentinel' were ZOMBI's first two recordings as a band. This Wabana re-issue of both as individual LPs is the first time either have been available on vinyl. Both titles were self released as CDR only, in super limited numbers. In 2004, ZOMBI were signed to Relapse Records and in a few short months the epic 'Cosmos' was released to much acclaim. In 2005 the band compiled 'Zombi' and 'Twilight Sentinel' onto one CD called 'Anthology', also self released in an edition of 1000 copies. After a short time, this too sold out and these recordings have been unavailable ever since. These vinyl versions sound vibrant and warm, and were remastered. These recordings reveal the early history of Zombi and fans of the band already familiar with their music who haven't heard them will get a better idea of where the duo came from and where they were going as we wrote "Cosmos". Each LP is limited to 1000 copies. "Zombi" contains a semi-bonus track, 'Sequence 9', which appeared on the original release, but we left off of the recent release of "The Anthology".
