The album title, From Parts Unknown, refers to the band approaching things in a completely different way this time. With 16 years under their belt, it would have been easy to go into autopilot and do the same thing but that would have been “boring and baseless”, according to front man Keith Buckley. With new faith and energy injected into their craft, ETID went into the studio with heavyweight Kurt Ballou at his Godcity Studio in Salem, Massachusetts.
“At a time when a lot of bands are going for a more crowd-friendly sound, we wanted to go in the opposite direction,” said Buckley. “Instead of making something that the kids can all sing along to, we wanted to make music that scares them.” The band stayed at a notoriously haunted home near the studio where the band was fully aware of the presence of something else. Maybe it was that and the book-obsessed Buckley reading on magic and the occult that inspired the band’s most awesomely devastating release.
