Secret Chiefs 3 or SC3 is an avant-garde group led by guitaristcomposer Trey Spruance formerly of Mr. Bungle and Faith No More. Their studio recordings and tours have featured different line-ups, as the group performs a wide range of musical styles, mostly instrumental, including surf rock, Persian, Arab, Indian, death metal, film music, electronic music, and various others. Released May 25th 2004 Web Of Mimicry WoM 014 1. The End Times FORMS 2. The 4 The Great Ishraqi Sun Ishraqiyun 3. The Indestructible Drop. Book M is mostly the brainchild of masterful guitarist Trey Spruance, as bassist Trevor Dunn was absent for a great deal of the project, probably having something to do with his involvement in the wickedly genius Fantomas. Book M is mostly made up of IndianAsian-sounding melodies overlayed with wildly cavorting techno rhythms and a tiny bit of metal, infused with a sense of mystery and paranoia from the thematic artwork based on number theory and assumedly Hindu belief systems.
