This is wild.

I agree, but in a good way. This is the stuff I am looking to find in the MS Awards.

Progressive, tribal, hypnotic, rythmic. powerful.
This album was for me one of the best news in 2020.
An european tour ?

The psytrance passage in "Organic Hard Drive" really drew my attention but it didn't confirm in any other part of the album....

Well, I take back what I've said in the past... This album rivals Draconian - Under A Godless Veil for my album of the year.

This album exceeds any expectations that I could have had. The last album was already dope, this one just takes the cake.
That rug really tied the room together, did it not?

I had never heard of this band before the MS Awards.
The phrase "I did not see that coming" comes to mind a lot when listening to this album.
And the tears that we will weep today
Will all be washed away
By the tears that we will weep again tomorrow

Just few days ago I didn't know this existed. It wasn't on top 20 so I guess it had less than 20 votes. And now out of sudden it wins in 3 categories and is top 1 of 2020.
Excuse me what the fuck

I'm the only one who thinks this album is incredibly boring?
We are just a moment in time
A blink of an eye
A dream for the blind
Visions from a dying brain
I hope you don't understand

I'm not sure about boring, but I don't get the praise either. It's an intriguing listen, but it's also too much all over the place. Some fragments are excellent, others are a slog. Some songs have a great buildup and a satisfying climax, while other songs are just buildup with no fulfilment at the end. Plus I have no idea why this won in the prog metal category, because it has little to no metal in it.
