about

Welcome to the 6th full album release by Supersonic Tartan Death Machine. This music was created between Fall 2014 and May 2015. It is again a mystical and highly varied ride through Celtic lands, in the 21st Century. Electronic sounds, modern beats and technological wizardry meet the primal sounds of pipes, Irish whistles and the voice of a man who grew up surrounded by the music and song of a vibrant Montreal Irish Pub scene. It is a tip of the hat to many styles and genres, but the listener will eventually recognize; it is Jeff McCarthy doing what he does best: bringing the sound of bagpipes to the people.

The songs speak of love, loss and worlds teetering on the edge of apocalypse. The latter are thoroughly fantastic "what if" tales rendered into song. The menace is there, but let it not deter the listener. These are dark worlds that do have an exit door at the other end of the tunnel...

The instrumental tracks can be traditional, they can be improvisational, they can be downright different. One is in fact a traditional military style march composed as a tribute to a lost friend.

I dedicate this album to this last, Pipe Major Kirk Johnstone, a good friend, a positive force, and someone who gave so very much to the Piping, Drumming, Highland Dancing and Scottish Communities of Montreal.

The album cover features the Keith Tartan in the background, and "The Heavy Horse", a magnificent sculpture that stands by the M8 in Glasgow. It was designed and created by master sculptor Andy Scott. www.scottsculptures.co.uk
