    Info
    Tiwanaku (tee-wa-na-koo), also spelled Tiahuanaco, lies in the Andes Mountains of Bolivia near the Southern Peruvian border. There have been mixed reports on how old this site actually is. Reports say that it is about 17000 years old!! Yes that's older than they say Stonehenge is which makes Tiwanaku the oldest known site still standing in the world. This ancient site is rumored to have been a focal point for the arrival of extraterrestrials thousands of years ago on this planet. There is also rumors that these ancient visitors are the ancestors of man. The main focal point of this tremendous city is a monolith called "The Gateway to the Sun". Ancient legends tell tales that this gateway was used as a door for transportation to other dimensions and realms.
    In simplest terms, Tiwanaku is a merger of Ethereal Tomb-era Nocturnus and Astronomica-era Crimson Glory, however, there is much more going on. Vocally, there is a mix of Emo's thunderous death vox, Wade's soaring melodic chops, and also the addition of what I'll call a blackened vocal style Wade is unleashing on these recordings. Vocally, there is something for everyone, with all vocal styles occuring within each song and at times simultaneously.
    The music has progressive and technical moments, as well as flashes of sheer brutality, but never sacrificing melody. Richard Christy's drumming is as intricate and interesting as ever. Of his expansive body of work, I'd have to say that his performance on Control Denied's debut is the closest reference. Rick Renstrom provides the guitar pyrotechnics and is, as usual, brilliant. Rounding out the sound are some very atmospheric keyboard lines that provide an element of fine detail to the songs.
