Lord Mantis turn us into babies. What do I mean exactly? Babies are the only form of human quite content to roll around in its own shit (or other people's, or animal's, it makes no difference to a baby). As we get older we gain instinctive defenses against anything that might contain disease. We recoil at the site of waste, we are repulsed by the smell of decay, we strive futilely to keep ourselves clean from infection, yet, the draw we feel to bands such as this is almost insatiable and when you consider the fact Lord Mantis are like an out of control, shit-filled machine, churning out lumps of foetid, rotting excrement for no real good reason then we become somewhat paradoxical in our desires. We become babies.

On the whole it is a better design for sure. Makes me think the artist lacks variety though. I would have thought limbless religious individuals being raped by tentacles/tongues is something you'd do just the once.

This album rips, it's very dark, almost black metallish at times, but incredibly hammering at the same time.

Are you implying that black metal is never incredibly hammering?

At the very least you have to admit it's pretty chainsawing.

Search for Justin Bartlett. I don't think he lacks so much variety.
Heh, now I know who is responsable for my kick ass Kvelertak owl-tshirt.

Both psychedelic and sludgy and blackened and catchy and groovy and... dirty. Great album for those interested in music with at least some of those characteristics.

Thank you, it's one of my favorites.
That isn't a Lord Mantis tshirt though. It's a Dragged Into Sunlight tshirt that Joe posted because the artist was the same guy who did the artwork of Lord Mantis latest album.
This on the other hand is a Lord Mantis tshirt (which I also own).

I fucking love the ending... When I saw them at Roadburn I screamed like a huge fanboy the moment they started that riff because I was so fucking excited.
What a nice way to end the set.

Hah, I can actually hear myself at 13:00

I'm extremely late to this party. I must be the only one I know who listened to Death Mask (which was in my top 10 of 2014) before this one. That being said, I love this but still prefer their latest effort. While Pervertor is more consistent and up-tempo, I think the vocals have become more grippingly evil and the guitars more gummed up with slime. My favorite tracks on here share the punchier, one-liners: Ritual Killer and At The Mouth both satisfy my need to put on a grim face and mouth my best imitation. "I DENY...MY LIFE!" If you listen, though, I can almost hear the progression straight into the next album. The Whip And The Body even talks about a "death face." Delicious. I love these guys for the same reason I loved Monotheist and Trypticon: it's dark, sinister, and ugly.

Not only did I listen to Death Mask first, I also like it more than this. While this is still a disgustingly brilliant album with plenty of great moments, I feel Death Mask is a definite step above (though not a big one) and a natural evolution of this sound. Favorite tracks: Levia, At the Mouth.
