TRIAL BY FIRE, is the third full-length production in the dark, ambient style Anderson is becoming known for among fetish/gothic aficionados. This eclectic mix of exotic percussion, rich orchestral and electronic instruments adds some new flavour to the recipe that is fantasy fulfillment.
This work is a study in semi-conscious awareness. A tone poem about ambivalence to imminent and demonic captivity. The hypnotic rhythms induct the listener into a cultic hell, plunging deeper into the cavernous realms as the music progresses. Only final acceptance of fate, of erotic consequences, sadistic unprincipled behaviour will appease It.
"In Trial by Fire I merged my sexual fantasies with nightmares about the underworld. What would that be like, to be sacrificed, burned, to be exhausted, sweating, laboring, used solely for gratuitous pleasures? Imagine the body melting to liquid, a demon''s plaything under a bed of molten glass, or laid out on white hot rocks, sweating, performing with another for an unseen Master. Those devilish images never left me, the anquish and the pleasure are both apparent in this opus."
The cover art is also somewhat risque for Anderson featuring nude images of the artist. "This cover is a work of art, impressions of sacrifice and creation. It''s not a collection of nude photos, rather it mirrors the sensual, fiery images in the music, things I know my audience appreciates."
