OraTorio Undead must collectively thank under threat of reproach: Christus, Those Who are Dead, and our families for all the time, encouragement, sweat, (some sacrificial blood), and tears it took for two brothers and an old skeleton to realize a vision. To David Gardner for his creativity designing the OraTorio Undead logo, and Léon Theremin for opening the door and allowing us, and so many others to walk through. All hail the Sons of Sarnaak Doomsayer Chanters for traveling so far, and through such terrible danger to be with us.
Scott believes it wise to recognize: Jessica. I will always be both overjoyed and saddened a beautiful girl like you fell in love with a monster like me. Thank you for all the time you allowed me to take from you. I love you. To Blake and Zaine, who gave up many Nerf wars and video games to make this album reality, thanks fellas and I will make it up to you. To Mom and Dad for all the love, encouragement, patience, and guitar lessons. To John Powell for the equipment that allowed us to pull this off, and to FL Studios for making recording software that doesn't make me want kill anyone. Thanks to D'Addario for making the best strings I have ever played, Bakersfield picks, (I miss you guys), and shout out of bad form to Jim Dunlop, who shut them down. To Yamaha for making the Eterna, to Scott for giving him to me, and to the nation of Cuba for bringing us together. A huge thanks to my original fans who have been with me since the days of Pop Kulture Rebellion, and Durge, (thank you also for allowing me to completely re-envision some of my old pieces). Another to everyone who gave me their time to listen to the rough tracks and give me their honest opinion. A "Thanks for the jams" to all the rockers I have made sound with over the decades, Matt, Spike, Jon, John, Brady, Joel, Jeff, Doug (C. Jackstreets), Zack, Dave of the Dead, Jake, and so many others, in no particular order. Thanks for the grand memories, and sorry I am so hard to work with... Thanks to some of my many inspirations, men of muse, Peter Steele, Johnny Cash, Dan Fogelburg and women who conjure up the earth, Melora Creager, Tori Amos. Finally, but far from least, thanks to Ian for taking this journey with me, and not only listening to, but actually acting on my wild ideas.
Ian feels it is necessary to thank: Scott and my family, extended and close, for letting me live my dream. Your encouragement has always been something that helps me get through tough times. Dr. Crane for his countless hours of piano lessons, you opened music up to me. Image-Line for creating FL Studio, you are a phenomenal company with amazing products. Many thanks to John who taught everything he knew about mixing.
