The following press release was also issued about the band:

"Consisting of eight hypnotic tracks of timeless and unclassifiable instrumental music, this quintessential double-album summarizes and transcends all preceding aspects of the band's discography and offers new insight into the fundamental principles and formulas of Aluk Todolo, permeating through other forms and resulting in an ultimate entheogenic ceremony. The production takes the side of fidelity in the transcription of the power-trio's live energy and osmosis, revealing the individuality and roughness of each instrument and emphasizing the inter-penetration of all the components of an organic and tetanizing trance ritual.This opus recounts the alchemical transformation of the primordial vibration into matter, through all its elemental phases, leading to the sonic manifestation of the forces of the universe into the octagonal prism of Occult Rock.

"In recent years, Aluk Todolo has developed into an intense and dynamic live band. The French power-trio has previously done a tour of the American East Coast in 2009, Southern Europe in 2010, and Northern Europe in 2011. They opened for German kraut-rock pioneers Faust in New York in 2009, and have been invited by SUNN O))) to play the Roadburn Festival in the Netherlands in 2011 and to open for them again in 2012."
