Don’t be fooled by the name making mere reference to a form of Metal that is not being celebrated here. Also, try not to put too much importance on the ridiculous song titles. This is serious stuff we’re dealing with here. Atmospheric progressive Death Metal meets black opera, meets intelligent lyrics about a dying earth and human scum. This record keeps spinning in my player for months now and I don’t grow tired of its daring take on brutality. May the slimy goddess be with you! Mohemian
