The title “Mahatma” is a reference to the Mahatma Letter and the Russian mystic Madame Blavatsky, whose somewhat dubious legacy nonetheless suggested a connection between philosophy, research and spirituality with side stories of deceit, supernatural elements and a degree of megalomania. The Mahatma Letters supposedly carried messages from the ethereal grand masters and introduced the esoteric and occult from the East in the Western world.
The album is recorded by Maria Bertel and Johannes Lund in their home in Torup and at Mayhem and then processed and mastered by Andreas Pallisgaard.
