SoloS: The Destruction
The songs are meant to tell a story of how the world is destroyed. The Calm being the moments right before it happens. The Lonesome Guitars are kind of like a curse being brought onto the world. Earthquake is where things start to fall apart and the destruction begins. Lightning is meant to signify the storms taking place, and obviously Thunder has to follow lightning. Lastly, God Fiddled While the Earth Crumbled is like a Nero played while Rome burned type idea.
The drums for Thunder were recorded about a year or two before the EP was actually mixed.
The Lonesome Guitars actually had been played multiple times back when I used to do open mic shows.
The piano that The Calm was recorded on is a Weber baby grand piano that was made sometime in the late 1910's.
