ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album began much differently than it turned out. It was originally intended to be much more introspective and personal. However, in 2012 (about one year into recording) oneclipleft attended the Douglas Anderson Writer's Festival in Jacksonville, FL. There, he had the opportunity to speak with Stan Lynch, the original drummer for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. He asked Lynch whether he thought music used to be better than it is now. Lynch replied, "No, I think music these days is fine. But I can't help but wonder why nobody writes protest albums anymore."

This struck a nerve with oneclipleft, who had been growing increasingly disgusted with many facets of modern American society and government. When he returned home, he trashed the year's worth of work and started the album over from scratch, intending to write that protest album that people like Stan Lynch had been missing the past few decades.

Another year and a half later, "A More Perfect Union" was complete. The album uses a blend of metal genres to tackle themes such as sensationalist journalism, soldier suicide, domestic surveillance, using religion to manipulate people, and even nuclear war. It aims to paint a grim picture of America's current state and also to serve as a cautionary tale for the future.
