Produced by GGGarth Richardson and Ben Kaplan and mixed by Bill Kennedy.
The songs on this album represent 10 years of music making for The Triad In Blood, (Joel, Adam and TIm Parent). They have evolved much in that time, and the result is an album that leaves no influential stone unturned. From ballad to blast-beat to breakdown, the listener won't believe what just happened and will wonder why it felt so natural. That is "πature" at work.
Musically this album takes influence from grunge, ska, metal, hardcore, reggae, funk and more. Each seeming stylistic contradiction is woven into the next with carefully yet effortlessly crafted segue.
Yet somehow album like this may face a long hard road lined with confused faces. We live in an age of misunderstanding. Music is chained to the image of its creators, and ninja are commonly perceived as heartless human weapons whose skills, like those of artists, are cheaply bought and sold. In most music, there is a deviation from real human connection. In life, there is an imaginary division of mind, body and spirit. True freedom of expression is strangled by social choke holds imposed by tides of opinion. To survive this one must adapt, evolve and re-connect themselves to their human nature. One must reunite music with dancing, mind with body and thought with action. One must become each moment, invisible yet vivid. Become nothing, immune to judgment. In correlation with a commitment to real, reciprocal human connection and zero-ego, high-energy, free-expression dance pits, support for the way of the Ninjaspy grows each time we have the honor of sharing our crafts with others. In the world of Ninjaspy, “The Skank” can be defined as the negativity inside each one of us that inhibits us from feeling free to love and express ourselves. To survive we must throw The Skank down until we die.
