About Arise [Bonus Tracks]

Arise! is the debut album by the British crust punk band Amebix, released on 14 September 1985 by Alternative Tentacles and reissued on CD and vinyl in 2000 with two bonus tracks recorded in 1987. The album was remastered a second time in 2014. The band Fear of God is named after the third track. "The Moor" is based upon "Requiem" by György Ligeti, famously used in the Lunar monolith sequence in 2001: A Space Odyssey. "Largactyl" is a misspelled version of the proprietary name for the antipsychotic medication chlorpromazine (Largactil). The song was written in response and somewhat in honor to Martin (previous Amebix drummer) for being diagnosed with "paranoid schizophrenia" and being institutionalized without choice by his parents.
