“There is a cathedral in the town of Santiago de Compostela,” explains Micah. “It is said to be the final resting place of St. James. Going back through history, pilgrims have been trekking to, and from, the cathedral for years, wanting to find peace, solace, and hope in their steps along the walk from France- into Spain- within the ancient Basque Country. Once inside the grand doors of this cathedral is a statue. A man named Master Mateo took it upon himself to carve it from stone in the 12th century. It is of St. James, surrounded by 24 musicians- seemingly trapped in stone of the ages- their ancient instruments in hand: some tuning, some looking, some simply sitting and waiting. They have been waiting patiently for over 800 years- waiting for St. James to lift his hands and begin to conduct them. They are The Musicians of The Apocalypse. They will bring Hell and Heaven to Earth. They will bring The Apocalypse.”
