Singled Out: Quor's Human Paradigm
"The single Human Paradigm means a lot to the band and the new record, hell, we named the record after the song. It begins the very personal journey and victory of the records completion. The song Human Paradigm contemplates the idea that we are all just irrelevant blips in the universe. We all strive to be something more, and yet most of us will fade into oblivion. Are we cut from the same program or can we change our fate and in effect change the path of our human kind, our human evolution?
In the spirit of this songs message we set out to record it with conviction. We recorded it out of town at Swagger Studios in Glendale, CA. We challenged ourselves to produce a song in one weekend from start to finish and Human Paradigm was the result. Our engineer Dan Whittemore invited us to "camp out" in the studio during the recording and we took it literally. I woke up Saturday morning with a slight disorientation from the night before and looked out of my tent to see four other tents inside a studio rehearsal room. There were lanterns, ice chests, and the remnants of bottles and paper plates upon a picnic bench. The whole studio was filled with the sounds of the drum and guitar tracks we had recorded the day before. It was 9:00 am and it was loud and it was f***ing beautiful."
