In an unusual twist, the new United Bible Studies album was all recorded in a single day, July 1, 2008, when the collective performed a “musical ritual” at HP Lovecraft’s grave and then an a capella gig at Top Shelf in Providence, Rhode Island, both of which have been captured on this LP for posterity. Ritual is the right word, with lots of layered vocal drones, particularly in the a capella parts, building up a spooky and powerful sound in a nine-piece ensemble improvisation which is strangely intoxicating.

The parts recorded at HP Lovecraft’s grave have more of a neofolk sort of feel, really frosty paganesque folk invocations which invoke a kind of ‘Wicker Man’ meets Angels Of Light sense of foreboding. Worth noting as well that the line-up on this record includes such names as Sharron Kraus, Richard Moult and Michael Tanner, and it was mastered by Steve Fanagan. Fascinating and affecting stuff, but not for the faint of heart!
