Black Mass was written when we were living in a share house with another band, and it was constant mayhem. We would have these parties were person after person would pile into this little dilapidated house with slab box windows and asbestos walls and all sorts of chaos would ensue. On our comedowns, there was always this book kicking around the lounge room about magic and the supernatural, a pictorial history of all different types of religions, cults and gods. Everything from blood worship to metamorphosis. The images from the black masses with all the lewd acts and evil goings on behind closed doors. We thought it would be interesting to compare the similarities of the rites and rituals in a black mass to our evening occurrences. A parallel of ancient and modern exhuming of ills and evils through ritualistic raving and near maddening.The first time we jammed on it was in the centre of the living room where all this would happen and it had this beaming energy about it. The washing synth sound comes from a guitar pedal bought from Crimea just before its annexing, who knows how many survive
