Origami Bulldoser The first time I heard Primordial Atom was in a record shop, where I asked if the clerk could put it on (he didn't have anything else for customers to listen on). After 10-15 minutes, he stopped it and told me "I can't listen to this for extended periods of time. I totally disappear." I didn't understand what he meant at the time, but this song stuck with me long after the fact, and years after I discovered, through this particular song,I really enjoy intensely introvert spiritual music. Favorite track: Primordial Atom.

Skyaja Lenzen This song I feel can go two ways. If you have watched the movie "The Dark Crystal" It reminds me of the elders as they make their journey across the land. Picture them in a grander scale crossing the universe with their staffs hitting the space floor each time the cymbal crashes. Each time they hound out to the galaxy for the great gathering. On the other side I see the ancient beings as in the depiction from Merciful Fate's "Melissa' Album cover. A Dark Demon that calls into the darkest regions Favorite track: Primordial Atom.
