"Official DVD release of Richard Bishop's cracked movie God Damn Religion. First edition comes with a bonus audio CD of the quasi soundtrack Elektronika Demonika, originally issued by Locust as a mail order vinyl-only escapade in 2006.
"For centuries, man has used organized religion to control the hearts and minds (not to mention the pocketbooks) of the ignorant masses. Well, Richard Bishop has decided he would like a piece of the action.
This film is a diabolical experiment in hypnotic mind control-a phantasmagoric presentation of demonic and divine imagery, meticulously assembled and designed to put the viewer into an altered state of darkened awareness. Includes original music from Elektronika Demonika, as well as unreleased material.
If you ever wanted to go to hell and back, this film will get you halfway there. Some viewers may find the imagery used in this film to be disturbing, but that's the idea. Contains some strong sexual content (as all true religion should). Not for the weak-minded, faint of heart, or those suffering from occasional seizures."-Locust Music
"Bishop's playing is astonishing; he makes more clatter and bliss with an acoustic guitar than the [Sun City Girls] did on the originals, plugged in ... Bishop's solo stuff, though, has focused more on craft than on innovation, assimilating styles he's already gone over in his past, showing his ability to wander through a guitar with confidence and direction even when he's improvising ... doesn't sound like nothing you've ever heard before, it sounds like good things you've already heard plenty of times played with an impressive amount of skill."-Pitchfork Media
