Higher Than Pope's Information

Salt Lake City, UT

Psychedlic Progressive Rock

About Us:
Continuities of time and space are disrupted in a heart beat by the weight of a Higher Than Pope composition. One second you are late 60\'s retro and then next avant-garde progressive rock. There appears to be a genre warp as the HTP black hole collapses genre after genre, with none appear to escape unscathed. Fans say: \"wow you are really interesting and original sounding. I am listening. you are whacked in a good way....I am listening.\" \"I think your song \"new beast\" is some kind of masterpiece. I like the raw attitude in your sound.\" \"I think you have the leading edge in music..very captivating...even more awesome through the phones took me to a higher plane!\" \"\'Wow!\' I just had my ears assaulted and my mind fried simply by listening to a few tracks of this aural crack. Thank god a soft guitar jumped from the speakers just in time to let me sop up the blood dripping from my brain - very Hitchcockian! Then back into the hunt! Good to find a soul behind the sonic mayhem! And a lovely one at that.\" Although primarily a guitar band, HTP have no qualms about snipping bits from multiple genres and splicing the results together. HTP are not big on songs that evolve so slowly you fall asleep between intro and verse. Instead they practice revolution and from one moment to the next you have no idea what may transpire next as you are catapulted from one sonic event to another.

Genre? placed Triumph in their Lounge/Ambient/Chill out category. (In fact, you can go to it at and vote for it!) Struggling with a genre tag for some of this music has been quite problematic. A recent review by a quite talented musician called it Hyper-Intellectual. After much thought we were wondering if perhaps we should coin a new genre and call it something like Hyper Intellectual Pop or Hyper Intellectual Pop. How does that strike you? Let us know what you think please!

Higher Than Poetry

You may already be familiar with the Higher Than Pope blog at er=Higher+Than+Pope (look at the member profile, not the artist page) and are aware that we presume to write poetry. The poems were sent off to a trusted editorial board, letting them select what shall be included. Preparation will no doubt take awhile (judging by the time it took for my last book). Our thinking right now is to make only a paperback available and keep the cost down. If you are interested in a hard cover, let us know. We'll see if it becomes practical. If you want to hear about the book's availability, sign up on the Higher Than Pope mailing list (see below). Our intent is to allow folk to order copies direct from me if they would like me to write a note and sign their copies. Those copies will be available prior to public sale. Don't worry about lots of emails on the mailing list...I seldom use it (once or twice during the last year?) Anyone is welcome to send me us email for any type of inquiry. pope at semanticrecords dot com or through

A Force of Nature

Chorus: Like a force of nature, an act of pure will, I'm the gathering storm at the top of your hill. Like a force of nature there's no tellin' when, this storm will come and hit you again. You feel it too, the magnet of desire. Love is our flame. We're moths dreaming this fire. I don't know why our dreams fall from the sky. Time cures all, except for the day you die. You are the flower. My words are the hummingbirds. Love is the word. There is nothing left but the words. Where there is will, there must always be a way. Sometimes the words don't really know what they say. Dramas unfold. We're actors on life's stage. You read the script. Someone else turns the page. You know right now, my thoughts are ink in my pen. We know this storm. We don't need no weathermen. This song must come, an undeniable source. It rages forth an irresistible force. Compelled to play, never matters what I say. I am the wind. I am gonna blow you away.
