Presenting ... "Black Saturday (waag_rel084)" by Scott Lawlor
I was deeply intrigued when Scott first pitched his idea for an Easter-themed album earlier in the year … especially considering the darker subject and proposed sound … I was not disappointed. This album is a melancholic delight … one that is perfect for the dark day between Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
A 320kbps version of this release will be available over on Archive for free with a lossless version available on Bandcamp for ‘pay what you want’ which does include ‘free’. If you decide to download this album here for free, and you can with our best wishes, then all we ask is that you please tell people about it.
This is my interpretation of the legend that Jesus descended into hell during his burial after the crucifixion. This album is a much darker sequel to last year's "Seven Last Words" which was a more meditative approach to the pronouncements made from the cross during the crucifixion itself.

Special thanks goes to Wings of an Angel for a superb mastering job.
