A lavishly-produced historical drama from China, A Battle of Wits tells the complex story of a lone warrior whose mission is to save a besieged walled city from the savage attack of a 25,000 strong army.

It is an impossible battle however you look at it. But here is a lone man willing to climb every mountain and cross every river just to get to the city of Liang with only one aim: to deliver Liang from the overwhelming threat of the Kingdom of Zhao in her battle against the Kingdom of Yan. Ge Li is the last Mohist in the Warring States period of China. Facing him in the field are thousands of swift chariots ad many thousands more mail-clad soldiers. His battle will be the loneliest battle in the history of war. No battle has ever been this unmatched in strength. Would this one man alone be able to change the destiny of Liang? On the surface, this is a battle for which bloodshed would be inevitable. But in reality it is also a battle of wits. A struggle between power and desire: between a ruler and those being ruled. A message of anti-war through war itself…

In a political climate where deportation and police are topics of frequent discussion in North America, Battle of Santiago’s upcoming third album, La Migra, seems well timed: literally translated, "la migra" means "deportation police." And while the album was named prior to the election south of the border, the emotion behind the sentiment is the same.

On April 26,1986 at 1:24am, a rainbow-colored flame shot 1,000 meters high into the Ukrainian sky. The fourth reactor at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant had just exploded. The battle of Chernobyl had begun. For eight months, 800,000 young soldiers, miners and even civilians from all corners of the Soviet Union worked to try and "liquidate" the radioactivity, build a "sarcophagus" around the ruined reactor, and above all, to save the world from a second explosion. Provoked by a terrific chain reaction, a second nuclear explosion ten times more powerful than Hiroshima, threatened at any moment to wipe out not only the entire Ukraine, but half of Europe as well.
