about

With Brian Troch on vocals in 1989, and still operating as Znöwhite—the old name remained until the group signed their deal with Combat Records—an eight-song outing was recorded on a four-track in the band's practice spot at the Space Place in Chicago. The sessions were in preparation for what was to become Znöwhite's Land of the Greed, Home of the Depraved full-length—songs that would largely see the light of day two years later on CYCLONE TEMPLE's debut album, I Hate Therefore I Am, in 1991.

Also in 1991—and still with Troch—CYCLONE TEMPLE entered Medical Records with Brian Mitchell to lay down rough demos for the Building Errors in the Machine EP. These recordings finally lend insight into the "what ifs" long-pondered by fans yearning to have heard Brian's soulful rasp on CYCLONE TEMPLE's later efforts. Of note is his handling of the harmonies during the chorus of "Down the Drain," or the arrangements in "Me, Myself & I"—one of the catchiest tunes from the group's post-Troch discography.

Few outside of the band themselves have ever heard these rare recordings, so 25-plus years later, it's incredibly exciting—and hard to believe—that Divebomb Records has been able to excavate these lost treasures from the personal collection of bassist Scott Schafer himself!

**Due to legal reasons beyond our control all bonus materials that we gathered to include in our planned CYCLONE TEMPLE "I Hate Therefore I Am" deluxe edition 2 CD reissue were rejected by the master rights holders. So this CD exists because of that reason and with the permission of CYCLONE TEMPLE.
