The first album in 1987 by Vasilisk, which was founded by Tomosada Kuwahara, a member of the industrial noise band White Hospital after the band broke up, together with Yukio Nagoshi and Chiaki Kawahara. The album features unusual instruments such as African skin drums, flute, Tibetan percussion, ancestral voices, and the entire album is an experimental/tribal sound that pursues spirituality under the slogan "Musick for Liberation and Ecstacy" and is unlike any other Japanese artist's work. About 22 minutes of A-side divided into several parts, The B-side includes "Taksim", which is like listening to some kind of ritual, and ambient-type tune "Whole In The Sky". Limited edition of 300 original copies.
