One of the most forward-thinking albums of this year. I've never heard anything like it and it's exactly what I need in my life right now.
Favorite track: ? [CODENAME_AUTO-BRIGHTNESS].
Neurofunk and black metal lovers unite! There's something in this album for everyone, but don't assume that it's a mis-matched hodgepodge of noise--this is a carefully constructed collage of both nostalgic and unheard-of samples, catchy beats, and black/doom vocals. It varies from light and airy to headbang-worthy destruction. If you're an afficionado of metal, experimental EDM, or industrial noise, then this is something you need to add to your collection.
Favorite track: All Deth Is U2 [CODENAME_GUIDED ACCESS].
Lots of the Hausu Mountain releases feature sounds that are big evolutions from the artists' previous work. Well, this album is one of the biggest leaps forward in a single album I've ever heard. The album is incredible. Fire-Toolz rocks!
Favorite track: To See My Hatred Clearly [CODENAME_TOUCH ACCOMODATIONS].
Beautifully terrifying and terrifyingly beautiful. Weird as fuck. Not a bad track on this thing. I like driving fast and watching the trash blow around while this plays.
Favorite track: All Deth Is U [CODENAME_FINAL TOUCH LOCATION].
