roundtable review shortly. In addition, look for the full page Big
Balloon/TRM ad in the summer 2004 issue of Progression magazine
(availabe in July).
"Feathers for Flesh" is an avant rock gem and is the band's most
sophisticated and sinister album to date. With monster bass lines,
thunderous and intricate drum work, slinky and psychedelic guitar
craft, unique vocals, creep organ keyboards, mutated mellotrons, and
a masterful arsenol of unexpected aural sound effects utilizing non-
traditional rock instrumentation (everything from the Chinese erhu to
the bowed psaltery, pots and pans, and a slinky toy). Engineered by
bandmembers Vonorn and Kiarash Emami, and produced by Vonorn at his
studio, the sound quality of the album is top-knotch and is sure to
please audiophiles. The cd, which features an 8-page full-color
booklet, was designed by bandmember Lynnette Shelley, and is complete
with original illustrations, photographs, and lyrics.

a year's effort in both the studio and in songwriting and rehearsals.
