Released on Bad Taste and NKS International, 1-15-2012.

This is the DARKEST, and HEAVIEST Baconhanger release to date! Despite what is going around the internet, this has NOTHING to do with "Jesus".

The album starts off with the intro track: "Descensus Inferos" which is Latin for "Descent into Hell". The person speaking in the track is "addressing" Baconhanger by his actual name, and is a tongue-in-cheek joke, where the speaker is in hell because Baconhanger never told him about "Jesus".

The track "Sacrifice" is about the murder of infant children in the name of Satan. The track could also be interpreted as a self sacrifice, and destroying your inner child.

"Malleus Maleficarum" was a book used by the Inquisition to persecute those accused of Witchcraft. Baconhanger relates to it by being an oddball in a small rural community in the Midwestern United States, often being accused of sacrificing cattle, desecrating churches and graveyards, and often being beaten and harassed due to these accusations.

"Demon Power" is the inspiration for a lot of Baconhanger's music. The demons use him as a medium in which to channel the sounds that you hear in these releases. After researching, Baconhanger came across the story of Robert Johnson and his pact with Satan for musical abilities, and shortly after Baconhanger made his pact, the sounds just moved through him. "Demon Power" is celebrating these gifts, and showing gratitude to the legions of demonic forces that made it possible.
