Forged by a shared interest in esoteric philosophy, the philosophy of hedonism in antiquity, and a lust for musical experimentation - especially through composition and chemistry; Cage and Viggo Domino became bonded over clinical trials involving the psychotropics ayahuasca and salvia conducted in their own studio/laboratory.Read More...
After results indicating the rather solipsistic notion that neither of them truly exists, the two psychic pioneers retreated to their fall back position - whereby pleasure in the sensory world became their prime directive. Music (and a good deal of libation) became the central players in this existential resignation.
With new inspirations literally in hand, Cage and Viggo decided to construct a musical statement with authentic, albeit primal, vision and purpose. Invisigoth became that animation incarnate. A concept for an album was culled from their tormented experiences and research. Entitled, "Alcoholocaust", the record explores the trials and tribulations of both protagonists in their search, and eventual discovery, of their artistic, animal, and rather Roman, natures.
Recorded in 2006, the record reveals, at the same time, a prodigious and profound respect and iconoclasm for the music that it post-dates. Some call it "progressive metal" or "art rock", yet Invisigoth transcends these attempted reductions and speaks for itself – all the while echoing the revelation of the antique and exotic that is the hallmark of their singular, yet universal, expression.
