The long-awaited return of Alto Stratus started as an attempt to do a sequel to the Biomechanoid album, in parallel to our work in Endgame and the Newt Hounds project, yet although Gigeresque the "Necronomicon Suite" was much more patently Alto Stratus. Also, a new Alto Stratus style had developed, stepping back to the mid-80's sound and reinventing it, thus the title CATHARSIS.
