I'm very proud to present you folks Cult of Dementia. It's probably the most adventurous work I ever did, since the recording of the album started circa 2009 and ended right now. All instruments from sax, strings, keys and guitar to weird noises, captured sounds and samplers, everything was done by myself all alone, saved by a few touches handed by my long time friends and bandmates Bruno Leal and Göbel. Hearding the finished album, I felt I could add even more details, but it's already too much for it, you know, I could slice all the short parts and riffs and make another discography of it. Written and arranged simultaneously in the free times while I was busy with other albums and my job, I personally think this is an essential Esmectatons album, featuring tons of frames as a graphic novel, some of them recorded in studio, some recorded home or live in ridiculous quality, spliced in that unique style of the best works I did before - I call it brainstorm formula, I developed that when I had a million scores and nobody to help or way to record all my music, then I threw up all the riffs and ideas together -, like No Sound Is Useless, the Cybernatural suite, and many moments of Black Comedy Theater series and Slowa. This is the real sound of Esmectatons. Hope you enjoy the experience. And please, if you are going to listen to this, try it entirely or get the heck out of here.
