Red face GATMOG Dump

I recently pulled out an OLD hard drive and found a bunch of GATMOG stuff that I'd kept, for some reason. (Thanks to AveryLoren for recommending the IDE to USB adapter.)

I assume there won't be too many people interested but nevertheless, here ya go.

Ha I just saw that question and had no clue what it was. Googled it and it led me to an archive message. Then I see its on the front page of SP discussion.

Btw...I think black wings may be a reference to Glass being the black winged prometheus looking dude.

The artwork at the top of the page is an illustration (by Gustav Dore) of Lucifer from Milton's Paradise Lost. Makes a change from all the William Blake references I guess.

I had a conversation about what Black Wings was supposed to be a few weeks ago. Something is definitely stirring about. Thanks for putting this up and doing all the work. I am so drawn to Machina and GatMoG. I think I was 11 or 12. It was the perfect storm to capture my imagination. I had no idea then that the iconography was pulled from classical sources, etc. It was such a profound state of mind while exploring all of these things.

"Black Wings Over America" is just referencing and/or lazily ripping off "Wings Over America".

"Wings Over America" was, of course, the seminal live album by Wings (the band The Beatles could've been).

I imagine it was going to be a live album by The Machines of God (that was the band right?).

It has to be this. Billy stated that he wanted to record one last album after Machina as well. Recorded live on tour in the spirit of Rock On and Pale Scales. Anyone remember this?

incubator's brand of trolling is unique and it is subtle, but it's trolling nonetheless

Yes he wanted to do one more album recorded at the Metro right? It didn't happen because the rest of the band didn't share his enthusiasm for Wings.

did the rest of the band really "not want it" or was it like when he shuts down an entire operation because 2 people vote no on Instagram

"rest of the band didn't share his enthusiasm for Wings" = James nodded silently in agreement instead of whipping out his dick and shouting "William Patrick you are a goddamn genius!"
