Thousand Yard Prayer combine breakbeats with world music on World Without End, sharing not only influences but also band members and label with Secret Archives of the Vatican.  Thousand Yard Prayer is more focused on creating a hypnotic groove, with opener “Sassanid” combining drum and Eastern instrument loops to lock the listener in.  ”Pilgrims” features a frantic drum-n-bass style beat, while “Healer” is a bit more lush despite a fast-paced melody, and “Mughal” aims to impersonate Mid-Eastern heavy machinery before caving under the pressure of the main theme.  These are interesting tracks, with a definite core style, with an emphasis on both percussive and melodic elements.  Free stream and download:
