the name azoth is a word from alchemy. it is derived from the biblical phrase
"from alpha to omega" ... "a" is the first letter of the
alphabet, and "z", "o," th" are the final letters of
the latin, greek, and hebrew alphabets. the things you can discover while
researching prog rock ...
in the early ninetees, on their 5th demo tape, azoth recorded a frank zappa
& steve vai cover. two years later (& on request), these
recordings were made available again as a limited promotional release.
early 2000 the band released a promotional cdr that also included zappa's "the black page" and their web-site also offered another version of the same track.
