The title is a translation of the Latin phrase 'morituri te salutant' that according to popular belief gladiators addressed to the emperor before the beginning of a gladiatorial match.
This is a powerful album, unleashing each member's instrumental prowess while consolidating each talent to form an explosive outpouring of progressive Jazz/Rock. Nothing but praise for the variety and uniqueness of each song, the playing of the musicians, and the group's ability to create a blend of Jazz, Rock, and Classical elements that was unconventional yet accessible.
The album reached number 15 in the UK Albums Chart.
