Frequent loneliness. Diminished responsiveness. Unwilling interventions. Unforgiving treatments. Symptoms resonating in a child with autism.

That's the daunting task Blindead take on with this vast, 7 song, 45 minute concept album: Describing a young girl's world infected with this mysterious disease. Cleverly done, the song titles form a paragraph warning you just how depressing and despondent this tale will be. Do away with smirks and smiles because this opus is not a joyful piece of work. Hearing a creaking upstairs floor, eerie sounding leaky pipes and mumbled voices in the very first few seconds of the first song portrays a drab basement straight out of a Hitchcock film and signals what's yet to come.

Rating: 9 I am finally giving this a listen. Haunting atmosphere and aura surrounds the music. Fans of post metal, sludge and advantgarde/experimental give this a try.

  Wonderful album, tells the story of a child affected by autism. Noteworthy is also great graphic design. One of the best in my collection.

Roman Przylipiak made a movie based on this concept album called "My Little Bess". Here's trailer...

Must check this out sometime, never seen prog and doom slurred together, should be interesting if nothing else.

Nice find, thanks. This band is quickly becoming one of my favorites. So good, so unnoticed, so unheralded. I found this too:

  Believe me or not people, but this is the best post-metal album ever released (unique as fuck). Rosetta's "Wake - Lift" and CoL's "Salvation" are next closely imho.

I think this album needs one more vote to qualify for MS top albums for 2010! I think It might be number one!

Profile is fully completed. Now it must be approved by the STAFF member, but when this happens...

Rating: 9 Easily one of the best post-metal albums I've heard. Ambitious, well-crafted, and focused, nicely synthesized with melancholic doom elements.

  I offer a blowjob in exchange for adding them here!

Actually, Ive just realized that none of us is right. MXMVI is not a number. 1996 would be MCMXCVI and 1906 would be MCMVI,which means that they either made a mistake or wanted to fuck us in the brain.

Of course I will, but what do I get in exchange?

Now in all honesty: The journalist asked what the symbols in the title means? They signify the main character's (an autistic little girl) date of birth, Havok says. He also added that the closing track's numerals sets the finish of the story, which doesn't ends up clear... In short, everyone can interpret that in their own way.

Yes thats all very nice,but again: MXMVI is not a number.

The best I could come up with is MX and then MVI (1010-1006) but it still doesn't make sense.
