Alkaloids refers to the psychotropic compounds found in many plants. Neither Obsydian Media, Nor the Seeds of Datura recommend the use or experimentation of any psychotropic substance and this is not what the band nor the album promotes.
The album is an exploration of the prehistoric symbiotic relationships between these many plants and fungi and the human species. How is it that our natural awareness and development of our cultures have proliferated with use of these compounds? It is not a live album either. Live refers to the plants themselves. A source of consciousness that we can tap into.

The recording and production of the track was interrupted on numerous occasions by several cataclysms: hard disk failure; several evictions of the bands studio; armed raids by police and confiscation of the band's computers; attempted blackmail; health, and mental health concerns.

We are slowly trying to produce the sessions from a recovered hard disk whilst trying to find a safe place to record without harassment.

Every contribution you make will help the band reassemble and reach that goal of releasing the album.

To this band of six the music always followed the edict of the shamanic "Datura" plant, evoking dynamism & all the heavy metal elements found in mother nature. ... more
