by Swami

This EP is the first material we have put out. It all reflects our personal life experiences. These songs are the answer to our struggles in life, and the strength to overcome them. The title of the album is a result of this. One HEAVY forward movement.

Album Notes
Garth Waddups (vocals), Mike D'Martino (lead guitars), Jeff Enger (rhythm guitars), Dennis Perry (bass guitar), Justin Jones (drums)
Five guys who all come from different backgrounds but have all played together in different bands from the past in Denver locally. Janes Dead, Post, Slack, & Girth. Two members of the band Girth(Mike D' Martino,&Justin Jones) started writing new material & hooking up with old band mate die hards. Garth Waddups came all the way back from Indiana to be the front man of the new found religion they call Swami. Swami has a psychedelic, organic,metal, mind altering feel, with a collaboration of intense and controversial music & lyrics. Everyone in this band brings something different to the table. Different influences and different styles that when all put together formulates quite the huge,organic,& heavy original sound that comes out of this band. Swami looks for certain sounds that come from some of the ancients that is incorporated into the music. The last track on the EP "Always of the Hallways" was wrote on the spot in the studio. We had one riff we had been messing with a few weeks prior and wanted to experiment with it in the studio. We wanted to see where it would go or end up with the pressure of recording while playing it for the for the first time. We did this in hopes to catch an organic aspect to whatever came out of us & our instruments. We were unsure on how it would come out. We were happy with the results, so we kept it to put on the EP as a final bonus track. Justin had found some Charlie Manson one liners & quotes to sample over the music. Garth wrote lyrics that symbolically represent the struggles & tribulations that the world and us have been through and are still going through. The lyrical content was wrote to co-exist with the Charlie samples. It is a good example of our live feel, since we recorded it live & without all the polishing & retakes that are usually done in a studio. This EP is a reflection of our lives and comes straight from the soul. It is like our answer back to society and the world today coming from our personal life experiences. Which doesn't make it HATE music, it makes it GREAT music.
