DEATH WILL TREMBLE TO TAKE US
From the first note to the last swirling fade outs, Death Will Tremble To Take Us sends the listener on a beautiful and unforgettable ride. Landscapes of unimaginable ambient textures to complex guitar-driven melodies that build to explosive crescendos, one will find themselves living their life laughing at the odds indeed. “We are here to drink beer, we are here to kill war, we are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that death will tremble to take us.” From the poem by Charles Bukowski, Death Will Tremble To Take Us creates the soundtrack to “kill war and laugh at the odds” to.
Sleeping Horses is the moniker of ambient wizard James Randolph Fouty (Spirit of Spain). Having played shows in Iceland and having a number of tracks featured in documentary films and TV Broadcast spots, James was never one to just sit and wait for something to happen. The passion started at a young age with cheap guitars and a 4 track cassette recorder, it even influenced his work life to the extent of taking a job as an evening custodian at the High School he graduated from just to be able to record on the grand piano with his macbook in the late hours, romping through xylophones, chimes, marimbas, and timpani drum lines in an empty high school orchestral room became the groundwork for what would be to come.
