ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Journey Beyond the Source

Beginning in the late 60s legendary German band Tangerine Dream started forging a previously unheard world of otherworldly music and sound realized in large part through the use of Bob Moog's newly invented electronic synthesizer. Later, French composer Jean Michel Jarre created scintillating worlds of impossible rhythms and catchy melodies that found instant appeal. Meanwhile, American master synthesis Larry Fast proved that the new technology was equally at home in hard driving rock arrangements as well as in creating many-layered orchestral tour de forces ...and all points in between.

As they were growing up, synth wizard and electronic engineer Dale Kay and multi-instrumentalist Wes Antczak were listening and taking inspiration. They spent their formative years learning their craft and building studios of their own, as well as working with or playing with various bands versed in numerous styles, and honing their production skills. In the new millennium they join forces as Inquisitor Betrayer to explore the vision that first set them on the musical path. You are invited to join in the journey beyond the source.

Great album (with a subject dear to my heart)
I have to admit a bit of skepticism for amateur artists, but Inquisitor Betrayor proved me wrong. Dale and Wes have put together some excellent soundscapes with both familiar and original sounds. And of course the space elevator is one of my favorite speculative engineering projects!

Superb inventive electronica with wonderful complex arrangements .
Inquisitor Betrayer's album is a superb debut, and if asked to choose a desert island top ten right now, this would be the first album on my list. It's that good in my opinion.

It's an album full of invention, creativity, emotion, power, subtlety, and wonderful detail and complex arrangements.

You can tell a lot of hard work has gone into making this album, it's so multi-layered, with so many great sounds and effects, such as a powerful mechanical hammer striking metal, used brilliantly, as part of the rythmic beat on the track, Sea of Fire. There's ticking clocks, voices, violins, horns, guitars, and even a little banjo on the last track, Eternal Light, and so much more besides. This is a beautifully crafted album, and nothing is out of place.

If you like your sequencer music, you'll love tracks like Ascension, which also has lovely Mellotron sounds and deep moody synth pads...fantastic. Then there's the epic 15 minute Garden of Shadows, which is absolutely amazing. The sequencers are used to such wonderful effect in this track, you just have to check it out.

This for me is a quite outstanding album from start to finish, and seems to get stronger and stronger as it progresses. There isn't a weak track on here, and i can't recommend it highly enough. Every self respecting EM fan should have it in their collection.

Excellent Debut - Better with every listen
IB have done a superb job of bringing their style into play with their influences. The production of the CD is brilliant and their use of instrumentation is right on the money. If you like Tangerine Dream, you'll love this; there are dozens of references and shadows of all phases of TD in here. Every time I listen, I hear more and more and love it more and more. And most importantly imo, it approaches emusic from a composition style, leaving behind the simple ambient and repetative sequencer based tracks which litter the genre, and lead today's vanguard of interesting, thoughtful and all together enjoyable emusic. Very well done, gentlemen!
