Sabbath Assembly – Restored To One (2010)

"Restored to One is a modern response to the musical activities of The Process Church of the Final Judgment, who used music to spread their visions of Gnostic reconciliation in a time of cataclysmic change. Sabbath Assembly has re-charged the original hymns of The Process Church and worked them into moving renditions that unite the trinity of rock, psychedelic and gospel into one triumphant re-awakening.

The Process Church was an intensely creative, apocalyptic shadow side to the flower-powered ’60s and New Age ’70s. The influential group opened Chapters in London, Europe and across the United States. Dressing in black cloaks and walking the streets with German Shepherds, they created their own intricately designed magazines, and promoted a controversial, quasi-Gnostic theology that reconciled Christ and Satan. Funkadelic reproduced Process writings in two of its albums.

The Process Church was accused of being part of a Satanic underground conspiracy by true crime pulps, most notably Ed Sanders’ “The Family,” which linked the Church to the Manson murders. The insider’s perspective of this secretive group and its true leadership recently emerged with Feral House’s LOVE SEX FEAR DEATH: The Inside Story of The Process Church of the Final Judgment, written by former members including Timothy Wyllie, and edited by Adam Parfrey."
