This is an album I did based off of the 2008 film 'Martyrs', directed by Pascal Laugier. The tracks were recorded in late March/early April of 2016. It was released as a 5CDr album by Altar of Waste on April 9, 2016, with a limited run of 10 copies.

From Cory Strand himself, about the album:
"First AOW release in what will hopefully be a series of recordings from Dakota Snaketail, this time from his excellent Shadowpiercer project. Finding Dakota's work was pretty revelatory for me in that we seem to be working in the same sort of space with noise (film/pop culture/philosophy); all of his releases are quite beautiful, and I knew right away that I wanted to work with him on some albums.
"Martyrs" is a massive set of highly progressive, intense HNW/ANW/drone/noise/synth compositions based on the classic horror film Martyrs, an incredibly diverse work that abounds in multiple sounds and textures. There's so much going on here that I can't properly describe it, but i've been listening to this record pretty much since Dakota sent it to me, and everytime i hear new stuff. "Life in the Orphanage" is one of the best HNW tracks i've heard in quite awhile. As of now this release is probably going to end up in my top records for 2016, right up there with She Walks Crooked's "A Drift Upon the Night." This is masterful stuff, and i'm honored to be releasing it through Altar Of Waste. "
