I do not possess one split atom's worth of regard for Hunter Hunt-Hendrix's "uniquely [M]arxist and psychoanalytic vision of God," nor do I care to dissect the flowchart of esoteric gibberish that somebody out there thinks qualifies for an album cover. But glitched-out spasmodic post-black metal with occasional harp and brighter tones than the Teletubbies' wardrobe? I'mů in? I guess?

Not as laughably terrible as the previous opus but a truly shitty album nonetheless. I originally thought this little dweeb was just next level pretentious but I really think he must have asperger's. This project is horrifically, hilariously awful regardless.

Definitely not going to bother wasting my time on this. How is this project still signed to a label? I can't imagine the album and tour sales offset the complete lack of songwriting talent.

I actually really liked a few songs, and honestly the majority of this album. Virginity and Pasaqalia are great tracks, I even get a bit of an AAFCC vibe, especially from the vocals. Unfortunately most tracks are just a little too "much" to make this album really good. Some tracks feel as if they're lacking structure as well, especially the interlude tracks. If his main goal is originality, he's written 4 albums virtually the same way now, so it's even losing it "shock" appeal. This is the most refined output by far though.

1 million from haters listening to make sure it's still bad. 1 million from masochists using it for their deviant sexual pleasure.

This is less Black Metal an more like an Ugly Shade of Gray Metal.

Or perhaps 50 Shades of Gray Metal. It's just as terrible and makes me wanna take a long burning shower to wash the slimy feeling off.

The instrumentals are pointless but it's not that fuckin bad. Id probably find this more interesting that another generic 1349 borefest.

There are some bands here that its safe to hate, and I guess this is one of those that lures out very insecure people so they can spred some of their hate. My guess is that your comment says a lot more about yourself than this album - you really hate people with aspbergers and this album in some very strange way reminds you of that?

You don't have to shame autism kids when discussing how terrible this band is. It's offensive to people with autism.

Ok. The shittiness of the album is a separate thought from my postulation that he may have Asperger's. I'm quite sure many great albums have been made by individuals on the spectrum. His mannerisms and focus on his bizarre philosophy remind me of clinical descriptions of those with Asperger's. Not a value judgment.

I'm sure people would like this band a lot more if it wasn't for the manifesto.

Don't put pearls in front of pigs (hate bandwagoners). This is by far the best record in 2019. I enjoyed Aesthetica, did not like the Ark Work, but this one is nothing but perfection.

I mean... I like the sound a lot, but it's that kind of good which gets old really quick.
More for listening to separate songs rather than the whole thing at once
