Another Sad and Bizzare Chapter in Human History

by Ego and the Ids

Another Sad and Bizzare Chapter in Human History is based on the Arthurian legend and includes eight songs such as Merlin Conjures the Dragon, Round Tables, Guinevere, Lady of The Lake, The Death of Arthur and more. Another Sad and Bizzare Chapter in Human History contains all of the moodiness, rhythmic undercurrent and droning qualities as Almost Masons, but also features the strangely melodious vocals of Gerald del Campo and includes some of his edgier compositions and guitar work reminiscent of Neil Young.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Portland, Oregon – June 8th, 2010 – Two years after their wildly popular Almost Masons, Ego and The ids is about to release it second, long awaited album Another Sad and Bizzare Chapter in Human History.

The album features the handy work of Gerald del Campo and Delonde Bell, who have been collaborating musically since 2002 when they played together in Portland's goth band Once in The Sun. Another Sad and Bizzare Chapter in Human History is based on the Arthurian legend and includes eight songs such as Merlin Conjures the Dragon, Round Tables, Guinevere, Lady of The Lake, The Death of Arthur and more. Another Sad and Bizzare Chapter in Human History contains all of the moodiness, rhythmic undercurrent and droning qualities as Almost Masons, but also features the strangely melodious vocals of Gerald del Campo and includes some of his edgier compositions and guitar work reminiscent of Neil Young.

When asked why the Arthurian legend was used as a foundation for this particular work, del Campo laughed and stated “humans tend to move in circles. The legend of King Arthur and his knights is a perfect example of the same mistakes that we have made since time immemorial and continue to make today. Everyone glamorizes and sentimentalizes the legend, but very few see it as the tragedy that we can learn from. It's time we learned from those boring mistakes and started making some other new and exciting ones.”

Del Campo and Bell both share a diverse interest in music and refuse to restrict their influence to any genre, and compose and play in the spirit of their many influences: Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance, Stoa, Human Drama, The Clan of Xymox, The Swans, This Mortal Coil, Cranberries, Sisters of Mercy, NIN, The Cult, Joy Division, Fields Of The Nephilim, The Cure, Velvet Underground, Elliot Smith, Pink Floyd, BT, Steve Canton, Sir George Martin, Esthero, Marillion, Porcupine Tree, etc...

Another Sad and Bizzare Chapter in Human History contains something for everybody.

I used to love Bo Hansson's Lord of the Rings album. This music reminds me of this and also of the Alan Parsons project. Its a reverie of eclectic sounds. Nice concept album!

Amazing.
After listening to "Merlin Conjures the Dragon" I knew I had to have this album. Have been youtube stalking them since! Great music and great talent. Truly a wonderful muse to listen to.

This is an excellent album which manages to be both eclectic and thematic. Songs like Merlin Conjures the Dragon and Guinevere are pure instrumental storytelling where every note is hit clean and every chord paints an image. Meanwhile songs like Do You Dream in Color are reminiscent of Pink Floyd.

Great job guys. Keep up the good work.
