SHABTI


SHABTI SHABTI's guitarist/vocalist Rob Cook offers, "I selected 'Shrouded And Veiled' as the first single because I feel that it is a strong representation of the scope of this project; white knuckled aggression, technical proficiency, dynamic song structures, and occasional glimpses of epic vistas through the seething ugliness. Lyrically it is a condemnation of the hubris of self-described religious martyrs seeking recognition among the flock. The concept of creating a catastrophe to 'save' people from it is also alluded to. Sharp criticisms of human vanity and religion are core to the concept of SHABTI, perhaps not novel material but still as valid today as they ever were. We played this song live for a year or two before we fully fleshed out the solo/interlude that comes before the final riff. I have enjoyed watching this song develop organically over time."
