    General CommentThis is a great instrumental. I'm one of those people wh isn't much of a "Christian" music fan, I usually find it way too preachy (I'm Christian already, you don't have to convince me) but this is a great band. As for the sound clips, they're from the movie "Event Horizon". So is the title of this album.

    General CommentThe first time i heard this song I was in awe. There's so much more to it than appears. Here's my take on it, Jack Wilson, for those of you who are up to date on Native American history, was a Pauite prophet. He created the Ghost Dance religion in the late 19th century right around the time the real "cowboys and injuns" was going down. After reaching diestic acclaim among fellow natives and commanding fear from the white folks, he dropped into obscurity. I personally think that this song is Jack Wilson's (aka Wovoka) descent into a hellish madness. If you'll notice, the only consistent part of the entire song is the guitar. It's there in the beginning and can faintly be heard to the end. This represents sanity. The ominously growing drums represent madness. This madness eventually consumes and the drums seem chaotic and out of sync. I get this great mental image of Jack Wilson, enthralled with fantastic and lucid visions, at the center of a circle of dancing indians (or demons?). I doubt this is what Zao had in mind, but hey it fits right?

    General CommentThe best part of this song is the beginning. It starts by playing the audio to the video clip that you see on the movie Event Horizon. You see people being chopped in pieces and being horribly mutilated by themselves. The captain of the ship is holding his eyes in his hands and says the words "Liberate te ex infirnis." You can hear these words in the song track too. It is an awesome song, but it is not as good as the intro piece in my opinion. As for the title, I don't think they are even people we know. The piece just before this one is on Kathleen Barbra who doesn't seem to have a record at all. Both are placed in Circle V though, which is the wrathful. Curious.
