Firebird is an imaginative blend of rhythmic electronic music and cinematic electronica, with deep house, chill, rock, dance and experimental influences that is superbly produced and grabs and holds your attention from start to finish.

From the opening title track, the listener is treated to a series of memorable themes and intriguing soundscapes, either established by foot tapping sequences, infectious rhythms or deep bass and cinematic tones underpinned by searing guitar and melodic lead lines all encompassed in wonderfully original sound effects and atmospherics.

When things slow down, as with “Impossible Sky” and "Secrets of the Days", the superb use of unconventional...

Quantum Voodoo is the debut album from UK based lord of the ants project, an it is a truly original and spectacular mix of dark ambient tones, dreamy landscapes, driving sequencers and screaming guitars. It takes you into a new musical realm - a place of magic, of unexplored themes, mysterious rythmns and inspirational new sounds. A truly stunning album that leans towards Code Indigo's Uforia territory and is as awesome as it is enjoyable. Highly recommended!

More Info

LORD OF THE ANTS is the alias of electronic music composer and producer Christopher Westcott.

Christopher was born on December 29th, 1965, in South Shields, Tyne and Wear, England, where he currently resides. Aside from the Lord of the Ants music project, Christopher is also an entrepreneur and is currently involved in a number of successful business ventures, including owning and operating an award-winning internet-based company.

Christopher’s many interests also extend to politics, religion, World affairs, science and philosophy and unconventional subjects such as cosmology, alternative archaeology and cryptozoology.

In 1972, due to his Father’s work as a marine engineer, at the age of seven, Christopher migrated to Montreal, Canada with his family to start a new life.

Despite the initial culture shock, Christopher eventually settled in, made many new friends and immersed himself in the North American way of life – a life of hamburgers, malls, comic books, those yellow school buses, skunks, ice hockey, despairingly cold winters and uncomfortably hot summers.

In 1976, the family decided to move back to England but Christopher can still fondly remember his life in this brave new World and insists that it shaped his thinking for years to come. Christopher still regards himself as an ‘honorary’ Canadian.

Sparked by his North American adventure, Christopher developed a keen interest in various forms of North American pop culture, including comic books, rock music, ufo’s and all things paranormal. But Christopher discovered his great love when in 1981 a friend introduced him to an LP called ‘Cyclone’, by a German band Christopher had never come across. The band was called Tangerine Dream.

Christopher had always admired the early pioneers of electronic music, which included Pink Floyd, Yes, Emmerson Lake & Palmer et al, but Tangerine Dream were different - vastly different. Their music was unlike anything he had heard before and he was instantly captivated by this enigmatic new sound. It was musical poetry, brimming with esoteric allusions. It was also bold, non-conformist and touched on subjects that were not recognised as mainstream. From that point forward, Christopher became an ardent fan of the electronic music movement and the music of Tangerine Dream in particular. Driven by his passion, Christopher then began to experiment and create electronic music with his own vision and style.
