I’m typing, bobbing my head, and tapping my foot all to the push-pull rhythms of the music, so mission accomplished.
Harsh earworms crawl through the sand of the listener’s psyche like shai-hulud in your brain, disturbing, disrupting, and defiling as they sizzle unnatural pathways.
There is great depth of feeling on the album that seeps through the cracks of this raging entity.
