Global Communication - Pentamerous Metamorphosis (Chapterhouse Retranslation)

Something I promised that I would post at some point or another... The idea here is basically Chapterhouse retranslated by Global Communication. If you're not familiar with Global Com, then you really should look into purchasing a disc or two. One of note is their debut release entitled 76:14. Not one for track titles, the discs has ten tracks all entitled the track lengths (76:14 being the total time of the disc, get it?). This project results into a beautiful ambient rendition of tracks from the album Blood Music. Perhaps not to everyones tastes, but I find this material exceptional. This is now regarded as a classic, and a rarity at the same time. You will have a great deal of fun acquiring it, just ask Stephen Patman from Chapterhouse, he actually bought a copy from me while over here in Canada attending a wedding.... go figure. For those of you who are into ambient, this will surely get a lot of plays, those of you into metal, go bang your head somewhere else!

This is an amazing CD, it's what got me into Global Communication, 76:14 is a masterpiece! And I don't use that term lightly. This disc was issued as a stand alone release (years after Blood Music), but the "How many languages do you speak," sample from Star Wars was wiped.
