To say that “Threshold of Perception” is anything less than intense would be like saying the Egyptian Pyramids are humble abodes. It’s a big track that seems to incorporate everything within thetoolbox. A soft acoustic intro that’s soon joined by a building orchestration, and then full-out arpeggio riffing turned to thrash riffing, and joined by death growls.
Guitarist Greg Burgess spoke about the track:
This song took me literally forever to ‘get right.’ I give Joe Ferris loads of credit for putting up with my nitpicking on the intro. ‘I want that choir bigger in the D Major section!’ We should’ve knocked up T-Shirts for that part. Dude took my crap midi sketch and made it come alive. Other than that this is a pretty straight forward thrash tune, with a few polyrhythms thrown in to drive Mike and Brandon nuts.
Elements of the Infinite will be released on June 24, 2014, in North America, June 23rd, in the UK/Europe, and June 20th, in the European G|A|S territories.
