Listen to the foreboding title track now.
The album’s title refers to an incident involving the producer’s grandmother, who was stricken with a mysterious illness after hearing three knocks at the door to her office. “When she had answered the door, no one was there to greet her”, explains Mroz.
“Curious about these omens, she began to research the meaning behind the sequence. She discovered that these knocks were meant to be fatal and a mockery of the Holy Trinity. One knock for each crucifixion.”
The album was made using a variety of unconventional “anti-instruments”, including metal percussion recorded using an iron lung and a kangling, a flute fashioned from a human femur.
According to the label, the kangling is played as a gesture of “fearlessness”, intended “to summon hungry spirits and demons so that they may satisfy their hunger and thereby relieve their sufferings.”
