THANATOS is iD the Poet's first instrumental album. It is volume one in a four part series; each album set to be released quarterly during 2012.
"this is a cohesive instrumental project that stands on its own, a meditation on death and dying (the demon “Thanatos” represents death in Greek mythology) that evolves from chaotic fury into peaceful acceptance. It’s highly informed by the Low End Theory beat scene. The beats are angular, warped and eclectic, incorporating everything from the RZA and dubstep to reggae and blues piano" CityBeat Magazine

"his body of work can be looked at not only as continuously evolving, but also as a clear representation of someone who
makes music because he loves it. And music fans love the humble, hardworking underdog."
"iD spins intelligent and meaningful rhymes over gratifyingly nerdy samples...in the same vein as Aesop Rock, Slug, and Sage Francis...Saul Williams , too." -CityBeat Magazine...more
