In a Promethean sense, man is a God. But on an even more profound level, man is a beast. This primary contradiction has plagued mankind for millennia. Man is a God. Man is a beast. These two aspects of his personality have been waging war with one another for countless centuries; a war whose casualties are seen everywhere and recognized nowhere. But there exists, however, a long forgotten place in the soul where God and beast intersect. To go to that place is to witness the death of one world and the birth of another...join me. -From liner notes
'97 released album recorded at Worldwide International Studios, All songs written and performed by Boyd Rice. Produced by Ken Thomas. Co-associated with Dave Simmons, Douglas P. and Rose McDowall.
There are two ghost tracks, the first being the reading of a strange poem, the second an instrumental piece. A sudden loud scream anticipates them after 13 minutes from the end of track 9.
