Uncommon Records presents the debut (FREE) release from Adam Warlock, Dark Weapons (from Mars). Adam and his wife were the victims of an apartment burglary, causing every object that was left behind to be seen as a weapon for defense a week later. If you've ever been the victim of this sort of crime, you realize that normal items like that old baseball bat, the set of steak knives and that rusty hammer become your best friends when you're afraid of return visits.
Producer Nasa turned to music that could provide both the comfort level needed and the energy needed to capture what Adam was experiencing. For this, his source material was exclusively from The Mars Volta. Nasa and Adam, both being big fans of the group, were able to take TMV's music and turn it into something totally new, and directed it toward the stress of the situation at hand. There are no TMV remakes or tributes on this album, everything is original. TMV simply provided the paint that was used to illustrate a brand new work of art. The track Serpentine Steak Knives also features friends Subtitle and Elucid.
Throw in all the rage, sadness and shame that comes from near compliant neighbors and inept cops and you've got a compelling true life story. All of this eventually lead to Adam having to pick up and leave a neighborhood that he once loved. This album is a release of Adam's pent-up emotions from that incident. Dark Weapons is a powerful, personal, dramatic and passionate recording, and it's dedicated to all the victims in this world.
released 21 July 2011
