Originally released on CD by NCC Records in May 2006. This "purified" version omits the two versions of THE STARS AND THE SCARS, which appeared on the CD.
In the fall of 2007, I was contacted by the legal department of Cherry Hill Music Publishing after Erica Dunham of Unter Null, to whom I'd never done a single wrong, apparently reported to the composer of the score for the movie UNDERWORLD that I'd used a sample of the music (actually, I'd sampled the film itself, rather than just the soundtrack).
When I responded to the lawyer that the album had been pressed in a run of fewer than 500 copies, and that nobody had in fact benefitted financially from the release, I never heard from him again. However, I did tell him I'd never again release the track using the offending sample, and while there was never any response, I'd like to remain true to my word. I could always remix the track with the sample removed, but what would be the point? (maybe someday)
The best part of the story is that, while I was working on that track, I'd been in contact with Brian Lustmord, who had done the sound design for the movie, and whose original loop had been adapted by the composer for the score. While he never gave me "official" permission to use the sample, and in fact warned me against just the kind of thing that ended up happening, he wasn't exactly unkind with his reactions to the track.
Also absent from this version are the tracks, A CONSTELLATION OF SKIN, SELF-EVISCERATING CONCEPTS, and IT'S BETTER THIS WAY, which can be found on A CONSTELLATION OF SKIN posted elsewhere on this site.
I've also included the BLOOD AND BONE version of THIS IS HOW WE PRAY. WE PREY., which was part of the BATHED IN BRAINS, BLOOD AND BONE CD-R.
