It has taken Junius the past three years and a bizarre series of events to finish The Martyrdom Of A Catastrophist (The Mylene Sheath). Preparation for the LP began in 2006, when the group would spend a month at a time writing and recording in unusual locations such as a bank vault in California, a warehouse in Texas, a farmhouse in Vermont and a shack in the swamps of Louisiana. The band members finished up the album at the legendary A&M Records Studio in Hollywood during off-hours. Martyrdom is a brooding opus of frenetic crescendos, sweeping vocals and celestial landscapes. MAGNET is proud to premiere “Letters From Saint Angelica,” which you can download below.
