"The first time I worked with Colin Marston was for the mixing and mastering of Inhumankind's debut album. Having been a fan of his work since my teens, I was totally thrilled and absolutely blown away by his impeccable job and his deep understanding of this complex and strange music.
During the recording process of Bi Cong, the duo project of Vasco Trilla and myself, Colin's name came up almost immediately as the person to address for the mixing. In a certain way, the seed of Tholos Gateway was planted during this project.
The rest just came up naturally. After playing with so many projects together (Möhit, Phicus, etc.) we wanted to work on something totally different, a new context for the timbral explorations we've been developing together for years. Again, Colin was the perfect choice.
Timpani, double bass, keys, gong, electronic drums...each layer interwoved in a strange and ominous tapestry Jarboe's vocals adds the final touch to this incantation from the past."
