"Thunderbolt Pagoda is a heavy space rock group illuminating the darker reaches of the cosmos at high volume. Their approach to long-form rock and heavy ambience (realized through large amplifiers, Mellotron and vintage analogue electronics) has gained them a modest but fervent audience in the Twin Cities and among space rock connoisseurs in other parts of the world since the release of their debut LP in 2008. Their new LP, Second Ascension, builds on the template of the first LP; one side working a condensed, song-oriented approach and one side a thematic, multi-part apocalyptic suite in several parts. While the format of the LP may be similar, the music has become more focused, darker and more complex, maintaining the Lovecraftian foreboding and cosmic expansiveness to which the group has always gravitated. Deluxe RTI pressing, presented in a die-cut, hand silkscreened cover with OBI, in an edition of 500 copies."
