"Lulling at times but literarily delightful, “Thunder” melds electronica distress and bliss beautifully." ~ Ben Speggen, Erie Reader 4 stars

"These are depths to be plumbed in close listens. There’s a lot happening and a ton of feeling lacing through the mix. Onewayness and dRachEmUsiK (aka Adam Holquist and Charles Shriner) expertly manage this tenuous juggling act well, effecting the balance between easy and difficult listening. The Sound of Thunder is a disc you need to go into with an open mind.
Do so, and it will likely win you over quickly."
-- John Shanahan, Hypnagogue Reviews

The Sound of Thunder was inspired by the final movement of T.S. Eliot's 'The Waste Land', 'What the Thunder Said'; and also by the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, from which it draws heavily. Each movement is based on one of the four concepts from the Upanishad, as used by Eliot: Datta (Charity), Dayadhvam (Mercy), Damyata (Restraint), and Shantih (Peace). With the exception of Peace, which we have allowed to stand alone, the movements are intended to represent the conflict and resolution between these virtues and the 'undesirable' qualities that they are meant to keep in check.
