Anubis Spire returns with their tenth album. Featuring eleven new compositions for 2019, with lyrics that range from a misunderstood mother holding lovingly to her memories (Sentimental Prison) to a soldier trying to make sense of war (Captain I Need A Mission) and a scathing rebuke of a cult leader's spousal abuse and hypocrisy (White Crow). With thought provoking songs and instrumentals that sail through genres and styles with ease and joyful abandon, Anubis Spire again refuses to be pigeon-holed, and remains true to their own muse.

Eleven new compositions that take the listener on a return voyage to the band's instrumental roots.

ANUBIS SPIRE was formed new years day 1998 after an chance jam session the night before. Made up of musical veterans who wanted to write and play music in the mid-seventies style of such bands as Led Zeppelin, Mahavishnu Orchestra, etc., the band set about melding it's various influences and adding a heavy dose of world and ethnic sounds, and a 90's twist to the mix. The debut CD-OLD LIONS (in the world of snarling sheep) was recorded in a barn, on an antiquated 8 track, almost entirely live.

In the last two decades they've released numerous albums, and contributed soundtracks for various film projects and documentary DVD releases.

The line up on this album consists of Bill MacKechnie, on guitars, David James Sweet, on Keyboards, Tim Costley, on bass, Fred DeRuvo, on drums, the late Marlon Kempmann, on multi-instruments, Jim Rustemeyer and Kerrin Johansen, on electronics, various instruments and voices.

BETWEEN THE TWO ETERNITIES marks a return to the instrumental beginnings of the band.

ERRATICA is a collection of songs about subjects that on the surface seem to have nothing to do with one another, but actually are inexorably linked at a much deeper level.

Once again ANUBIS SPIRE asks us to put the puzzle pieces together to try to see the big picture, and as in their last offering in 2006, CHILDREN OF A FOREIGN FAITH, the effect is startling to those who make that effort. That said, all songs here more than stand on their own and can certainly be appreciated on their own merits. ERRATICA takes the A.S. saga forward by examining the truth about the past once again.

A dark journey through the eyes of the children we throw away. The long awaited progressive epic from one of rock's most original bands.

"Beware the children that you devalue, humiliate, abuse, reject, and push out to the fringe, because out on the edge the air is clearer....and when they look back at you they'll see the truth." ~Anubis Spire

Concept album? Rock opera? Thematic song cycle? Yes, yes, and yes. And then some. On the surface, CHILDREN OF A FOREIGN FAITH seems deceptively straight forward. At over an hour in length, it moves through it's sixteen cuts seemingly without time for a pause or even a deep breath. Each song leads immediately to the next, separated occasionally by spoken word lead-in's that require the listener to rise up above the fray and try to see the big picture in order to understand. The big picture is what this album is all about. Many artists have written compositions about child abuse and alienation but none have looked beyond the obvious with the all encompassing thoroughness that songwriter/guitarist/vocalist Bill MacKechnie has. Though cruel and deplorable, it's not just the immediate effects of abuse that Children Of A Foreign Faith addresses. MacKechnie has divided the songs into the sub-headings of: SURVIVAL, AWAKENING, THE WORLD and finally TRUTH. Each section deals with the specific effects of damage done, and most importantly, just how that damage continues to ripple through all future interactions, and even onto the world stage in the forms of fear, hate, and violence. Starting on a very personal internal level, the story runs ever onward through troubled relationships, adult disillusionment, corporate greed, religious insanity and cut throat media manipulation. All the while making it clear that the same seminal principle of might-makes-right exploitation and human devaluing is at play. Once the pieces come together, it leaves us shocked and amazed that we've never recognized that simple fact before. In the end, MacKechnie and ANUBIS SPIRE offer no magical solutions or feel-good validations, and the listeners are left to find their own truth.

Musically the band again avoids being pigeon-holed and tied down. They speed through diverse styles and genres as if they invented them. Everything from Mahavishnu fusion to Floydian dirge to Zeppelin celtic-acoustic; even Bill's venerable homebuilt ANUBITAR sitar/guitar makes an appearance in the Indian Raga-ish ETERNAL RESONANCE (Part Two).

I was blown away by the level of originality and sheer musicianship of their debut CD (Old Lions) but the band has honestly re-invented and out done themselves on this one. Bill, Tim, Mick and newest member, keyboardist David Sweet sound better than ever.

Featuring a cast of special guests that includes Saqqara Record's NEIL HENDERSON, MIKE WARD of TEMPORARY POWER, MARLON KEMPMANN of DOCTOR MEMORY, the ever-shadowy and elusive JP MACGREGOR, among others, ANUBIS SPIRE have fashioned an album that will need more than a few listens to sink in, but once it does, if you're like me, you'll have a hard time getting it out of your head.

'Lost' and 'orphaned' pieces from a decade of the band.

From 1998 to 2008, Anubis Spire produced a number of 'orphan' songs which never appeared on any of their album releases. Some were written for projects that never came to fruition, while others were improvised and recorded live, but never resurrected for the studio. This CD brings this 'lost' material together at last. From studio jams to bombastic live performances, these tracks mark the miles along the road that has made Anubis Spire one of today's most original and intriguing bands.

"Back to Abydos finally brings together, on one CD, the most sought after songs from Anubis Spire's early, live, and unreleased material. From the eerie guitar-soundscape, REVENANTS, to the smoldering longing of LOVE FROM NOTHING AT ALL, these pieces showcase the band's stunning diversity and musically adventurous spirit. Unlike many other retrospective and 'live' albums where the songs are heavily digitally post processed, and sometimes even totally re-recorded, we've opted to present the pieces in all their un-retouched and imperfect glory. They should be viewed as musical snapshots in time, complete with amp hum, pick scrapes, PA glitches, and all the other unplanned for events that make a true improvised performance a dance with unseen forces rather than a cold, practiced, and mechanistic exercise. True to course, the diversity of styles is stunning. In an ever narrowing and polarized musical world, Anubis Spire is forever expanding."

~Kathy Stewart, RANDOM BULLET RECORDS

BACK TO ABYDOS features ten songs ranging from early live improvisations to two orphaned tracks (DRAMA, TRAUMA AND AWKWARD GRACE and WHIRLING TOWARD SHAMBALAH) taken from the first "Children of a Foreign Faith" sessions before leader Bill MacKechnie scrapped the uncompleted project and reorganized the group.

"A great peek into the formative days of ANUBIS SPIRE!" ~ Eric Barron

Progressive-rock: a fist-fight between John McLaughlin and Jimi Hendrix at the base of the great pyramid.

ANUBIS SPIRE is a guitar-heavy post progressive-rock/world fusion band with a decidedly Middle-Eastern flavor. Formed New Years day, 1998, after a chance jam session the night before, the group is made up of musical veterans who wanted to write and play music in the mid-seventies style of such bands as Led Zeppelin, Mahavishnu Orchestra, etc.. From the beginning, they set about melding their various influences, adding a heavy dose of world and ethnic sounds, and a few new twists to the mix.

The debut CD-"OLD LIONS (in the world of snarling sheep)" was recorded in a barn, on an antiquated 8 track, almost entirely live! What does ANUBIS SPIRE sound like? One reviewer summed them up as: "Progressive rock from Mars, filtered through Atlantis, India, and ancient Egypt, and sounding kinda like a fistfight between Jimi Hendrix and John McLaughlin at the base of the great pyramid!

"OLD LIONS (in the world of snarling sheep)" is a mostly instrumental album (4 vocal tunes) with lyrics that range from the heartlessness of small towns to a song about flying saucers, that packs over 60 minutes of intense guitar-heavy progressive rock/world fusion improvisation into it's 15 cuts.

Often dark and hypnotic, ANUBIS SPIRE states: "We're not for everyone...but, if you're one of us, you'll KNOW."

A time traveling journey back to the formative, bluesy beginnings of ANUBIS SPIRE songwriter / guitarist, Bill MacKechnie.

Hum, Hiss, Crackle And Pop - The Early Demos Of Bill MacKechnie

~ Back in the dark ages, before all the handy musical super-technology that we now take for granted, songwriter/guitarist Bill MacKechnie (of ANUBIS SPIRE fame) was busy wrestling with a primitive, mostly home built, analog recording setup in an effort to preserve his and his friend's music. Along the way, he wrote, arranged, played and recorded some of the most stylistically diverse of his large catalog of songs. The tunes on this CD represent a broad spectrum of material culled from those still existing early tapes (unfortunately, often 3rd generation and beyond cassette copies). As the title of the CD suggests, they contain countless audio blemishes and imperfections that should be viewed as part of their charm - a bit of audio patina if you will. From full-fledged demos and simple works in progress to quickly recorded live performances meant merely to save a fleeting idea, these pieces capture a wealth of musical snapshots in time. They reveal an adventurous and evolving artist searching for his unique voice and signature sound. We hope you enjoy this little musical time traveling journey as much as we have.
