Album Notes
“It is all a bit of give-and-take, really, isn’t it?”, Matt Brand proposes, “it certainly was great fun to re-cord Paranoid without giving it the old-chestnut treating. On the other hand to hear Jordan [Cutajar, lead singer of Malta’s Nomad Son] interpret our songs by taking over lead vocals on The Stream Of Forgetfulness and Psalm 139 b” is an amazing experience.

Another highly commendable guest, Ian Arkley of Seventh Angel and My Silent Wake fame, was en-tirely free in structuring his guitar solo on Psalm 139 b. Adds Andy La Morte, the new guitarist in Pÿlon’s permanent line-up: “I am very happy to have been invited to play with Pÿlon, For me, it never was about hogging the spotlight. Matt has his peculiar style of writing riffs and playing solos and it feels good to take some of the weight off his shoulders to let him shine as he does on THE HARROWING OF HELL.”

“And let us not forget [guest soloist] Remo Meier,” bass player Jan Thomas jumps in. “Already on ARMOURY OF GOD [2011] we had hoped to capture his expressive song-in-song solo magic, so we are overjoyed we get to tick this item of our bucket list.” Asked about the new album’s lyrical content, Thomas confesses that no recently-written lyrics of his were used this time around. “The two parts of Psalm 139 are the pièce de résistance on THE HARROWING OF HELL, so we gave those tracks all the space they needed. And they do fit in perfectly with the medieval concept of the Redeemer’s descent into Hell to salvage the just among the pre-Christians and lead them to the Sapphire Throne.” – Talk about a mouthful!

Drummer Andrea smiles: “The lyrics are usually not my prime concern. There are much more profound abysses the band needs me to steer them clear off: the guys may come up with really interesting riffs and song structures, but rarely do they allow for four-on-the-floor beats to build upon. It would not be half as funny, either, if they actually knew what time signatures those parts are in [laughs].” Nonethe-less, “Pÿlon is a fun gig which allows me to stretch into a different direction where I can bring in strange things, musically, and the fact that we play no shows makes it an all-round good time together free of hassle!”
