"Blood of the Earth is a studio recording of unearthly urgency. The music, propelled forward at full-speed by duel drummers Marc Edwards and Weasel Walter, is energetic, spiky, harsh and articulate Free Jazz for the modern age. The other members rounding out this powerful sextet include Darius Jones (alto saxophone), Forbes Graham (trumpet), Elliott Levin (tenor saxophone and flute) and Adam Lane (bass). Recorded in Brooklyn, NY in November 2009 by Colin Marston (Krallice, Behold...the Arctopus, Gorguts, Dysrhythmia), Blood of the Earth is a crystal clear document of instrumental heaviness which will blow away fans of the Albert Ayler/Cecil Taylor/Milford Graves/Peter Brotzmann/FMP/ESP/BYG schools of total energy music!"-ugExplode

Artist Biographies:

"Weasel Walter (real name Walter Wyzowski) is a composer and instrumentalist who founded the band The Flying Luttenbachers in Chicago in 1991 with a current member of Cellular Chaos and Behold...The Arctopus. Over the years, The Flying Luttenbachers included noted Dylan Posa, and Michael Colligan, while creating a body of music drawing equally from no wave, death metal, gamelan, noise music, hardcore punk and modern classical. Walter moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2003, where he formed the latest of many Luttenbachers lineups, remaining on percussion with the addition of bassist Mike Green (Burmese), and virtuoso guitarist Ed Rodriguez (ex-Colossamite, Gorge Trio). Singular guitar phenomenon Mick Barr (Krallice, Octis, Orthrelm) joined the group in 2005. The Flying Luttenbachers ceased to operate in late 2007. On November 25, 2009, Weasel Walter announced that he was moving to New York City to join the band Behold... The Arctopus on drums and will be writing "new, more extreme material from scratch." He also formed Cellular Chaos with Marc Edwards (drummer), Admiral Grey and Ceci Moss."
