With two drum sets and electric guitar, the trio's music is powerful and completely unique, played freely and with a fierce spirit. Tisziji Muñoz was the one who named the album Spiritual Drum Kingship. He felt that the meeting of drum kings Bob Moses and Kresten Osgood created energy of a seismic nature, and also considers his guitar a six-string drum on this recording.
