Staff review by
This isn't tight jeans, big hair, "coke off a stripper's ass" heavy metal. But it'll blow your mind in the same way without you really realizing quite what's happening. No, this is "walk softly and carry a big stick" heavy metal.

Not bad. Can't tell if I like the vocals or not though.

True...A big negative is the vocals
In the beginning I was made of clay. Then I bit the apple and they changed me to metal 🤘

Awwww I love the vocals. Very special in adding to the barely perceptible fuzz vibe of the album.

Is what I choose
At the end of my days"

Really nice stuff this. I find the vocals brilliant, they add a special identity to this album together with the weird fuzzy vibe on the production.

Good album, very enjoyable but... forgettable too.
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
