SABBATH ASSEMBLY is dedicated to the quest set forth by The Process Church of the Final Judgment to conquer fear with love, rePROCESSing their hymns for the current generation.

Restored to One is a modern response to the musical activities of a cult known as The Process Church of the Final Judgment, who used music to spread their visions of Gnostic reconciliation in a time of cataclysmic change.  Sabbath Assembly has re-charged the original hymns of The Process Church and worked them into moving renditions that unite the trinity of rock, psychedelic and gospel into one triumphant re-awakening.....
The Process Church was an intensely creative, apocalyptic shadow side to the flower-powered '60s and New Age '70s. The influential group opened Chapters in London, Europe and across the United States. Dressing in black cloaks and walking the streets with German Shepherds, they created their own intricately designed magazines, and promoted a controversial, quasi-Gnostic theology that reconciled Christ and Satan through deeper awareness and love. Funkadelic reproduced Process writings in two of its albums.....
The Process Church was accused of being part of a Satanic underground conspiracy by true crime pulps, most notably Ed Sanders’ The Family, which linked the Church to the Manson murders.  The insider’s perspective of this secretive group and its true leadership recently emerged with Feral House's LOVE SEX FEAR DEATH: The Inside Story of The Process Church of the Final Judgment, written by former members including Timothy Wyllie, and edited by Adam Parfrey.....

The recording follows on the heels of a highly successful, strategically planned series of live shows across the US in the Fall of 2009, which presented a ceremony featuring Sabbath Assembly performing the original hymns of the Church – all previously unrecorded.  More live events shall follow along with a documentary on the Process Church made by William Morris of Skinny Puppy, a video for a song from the coming release, standard CD and LP releases and an archival LP box set (including readings of Process sacred literature by Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Adam Parfrey, and Lydia Lunch, as well as LOVE SEX FEAR DEATH author Timothy Wyllie), and an off-Broadway theatre extravaganza entitled “Gaming the Gods” based on the rise and fall of the Church.

Harvestman, U.S. Christmas, Minsk - Hawkwind Triad

Harvestman, U.S. Christmas, Minsk - Hawkwind Triad

Neurot, 2010

Three awesome bands covering another awesome band make for one fucking awesome album!

"The Hawkwind Triad album is a fitting tribute to the British band that somehow seems to simultaneously remain unknown to the majority of the world’s rock listeners, while also standing as one of the most influential psychedelic bands of all time.

The Triad is unique, as it is an album of covers by three separate artists that essentially flows like an album. Each band -- HARVESTMAN (Steve Von Till of NEUROSIS’ psych guitar based project), MINSK, and U.S. CHRISTMAS -- have approached these 11 iconic songs with respect, but each have also recognized the need for the songs to be reinterpreted in a new space and time. The result is a full-length psychedelic feast that not only captures the feel of Hawkwind’s individual songs, but also has the feel of their classic albums. Even the artwork by Boston artist Thomas Saraceno appropriately provides trippy surrealist scenes fitting to many albums from the 70s. Most of all, the Triad was done out of pure veneration for a band than laid a solid foundation for every heavy, trippy, weirdo band that exists now – as well as for those who will freak out in the future." - Neurot
