This album features a blend of styles which are frequently visited by this group. Catchy melodic funk, complex large-scale charts, trio jazz, classical tapestries, ripping/tasty guitar solos, percussive freak-outs, world music elements as well as several electronic tracks paint the landscape of this richly diverse collection. In other words, this is the type of jazz/fusion record that requires several listens to truly appreciate (and it will likely be misunderstood because of its apparent lack of regard for adherence to conventions) ....
As far the title is concerned (Mayan Prophecy of Doom), it's really an attempt to capture the essence of the "Armageddon fever" we've been collectively experiencing this year (2012). Also, it's sort of any inside joke about how successful this release will probably be (hence the phrase - "Prophecy of Doom", lol).
