Product Description (Plastichead.com):
Ascension Of The Watchers is a solo project of Burton C. Bell (Fear Factory) that he started in 2002 with John Bechdel (Killing Joke, Fear Factory, Ministry, False Icons). The music of AOTW is nothing like Fear Factory but orchestral in nature; where layers of sounds create a texture that is hypnotic, rhythmic, and melodic. “Since the inception of this project, these are the sounds that resonate through my mind; these are the words that echo throughout my subconscious” (Burton C. Bell).
