Trinity is a limited-edition issue of the soundtrack to the Italian horror film H2Odio (English title: Hate2O). Under his psych-guitar moniker Harvestman, Steve Von Till of Neurosis has composed a compelling backdrop to this psychological thriller. Inspired by the film's picturesque remote-island landscape and the tormented psyche and tension of its plot, this soundtrack projects its own epic imagery in the mind of the listener.
In 2005, critically acclaimed Italian director Alex Infascelli (Almost Blue) received a Harvestman album while beginning his edit of his new film. Captivated by the record's pace, variety, rich soundscapes and hypnotic nature, he contacted Von Till to ask if he would be willing to score the film on short notice. The guitarist had just relocated to North Idaho and was about to complete his home studio, so the timing was perfect. Within weeks, the entire score was finished and Infascelli flew from Italy to Von Till's home to go over the material.
The sounds vary from lush, hopeful, and beautiful guitar-based landscapes to sinister visions of psychic turmoil.

Tormented, Olivia ferociously removes the only palpable link she has with her dead twin--a tooth lodged beneath the skin of her shoulder. But discarding it down the drain only brings the horrific past to the surface. Just as water awakens this hidden life, it is water that will gruesomely take life away....."
