Title: I Hate Therefore I Am
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

In the late-'80s, following lineup changes that found ZNÖWHITE guitarist Greg Fulton and bassist Scott Schafer joined by John Slattery on drums and powerhouse ex-Hammeron vocalist Brian Troch, a name change was imminent. Rechristened as Cyclone Temple, the group signed on with Combat Records and entered Normandy Sound in Warren, RI to track their debut album, I Hate Therefore I Am, with engineer Tom Soares. A soulful masterpiece of thrash, I Hate Therefore I Am hit stores in 1991, and Cyclone Temple toured with a variety of acts before being unceremoniously dismissed from their label during a Sony takeover. As such, the groundbreaking creativity, intelligence, emotion, and power of I Hate Therefore I Am unjustly failed to make it's mark. A frustrated Troch walked away, and Cyclone Temple soldiered on to release an EP (Building Errors in the Machine, 1993) with singer Marco Salinas, and follow-up album My Friend Lonely - with yet another frontman, Sonny DeLuca-before throwing in the towel in 1994.But, it's never too late to have one's mind blown to bits by a criminally underrated thrash classic such as I Hate Therefore I Am, so now, over 25 years later-and for the first time since 1999-Divebomb Records is proud to make I Hate Therefore I Am once again available on CD. Remastered by Jamie King at The Basement, the disc will be packaged with a retrospective essay featuring brand new commentary from Fulton, Troch, and Slattery; plus nearly 20 reverential quotes contributed by members of AFTERMATH and SINDROME (among others), as well as authors from Decibel, Rock Hard, and many more. You'll also find a reprinted Cyclone Temple interview feature from Detonator fanzine #2, conducted in 1991. For the fans, by the fans!
