The idea for this album (originally intended to be just one piece) came to me probably six months prior to recording. I imagined a world covered in trash, so many layers deep that you could dig trenches into it 15 feet high (or perhaps much more) and not reach the actual surface. And in fact in these trenches were shelters for the few people managing to survive in this environment. Harsh winds, full of particles of industrial waste and poisonous vapors, blew constantly. Was this an asteroid used for dumping? Or was this the future of the earth?
