990 - Unmaker of Worlds (continued)

Golgotha is signed and releases its first album

Karl Foster

Album finished, cut to 12-inch vinyl and readied for CD production, the label wanted something stronger for a title, deciding on Unmaker of Worlds. This inspired artist Duncan Storr (see Hawkwind’s Live Chronicles, plus many other album and book illustrations) to devise a striking graphic of a monster devouring the Sun.

Reaction to Unmaker was mixed. Some in the press slated it, but the music scene in 1990 was off in another direction entirely. Nevertheless, fans were keen and somewhat surprised to hear how Golgotha had evolved from hammering metal, folk and experimental musings into a quasi-classical rock phenomenon. A direction to be further explored on the next album, Symphony in Extremis.
