I'm two weeks late for the 20th anniversary of this masterpiece. But trust me: This is not an album you celebrate in the normal sense. 2013, I was 20 years old and blasted this album in one sitting. Alone, at midnight, with all the lights out. It remains the most devastating and terrifying musical experience I've ever endured. Today Is The Day's Sadness Will Prevail is a massive, 144 minutes long soundtrack of all that is wrong with the world. The sludgy guitars, the high-pitched screams and wails, the bizarre samples, the schizophrenic songwriting. Everything is designed to harm you. Not even the acoustic guitars, violins or piano can help you as they only make the music even more surreal. I'll leave my late friend Marcel's warning as my final message to all of you who want to endure one of the most challenging album ever created in the name of extreme music:

I don't believe that listening to music can make you go out and kill random people but Sadness Will Prevail is the exception to the rule.
SWP is the most terrifying haunting piece of music ever set to disc.

Sorry for quoting and old cm. Do you recommend this to someone totally not into any core style?

Noisecore is just essentially a heavy noise rock. From your comments around here, I feel you'll like this.

I'd recommend you to check out their less intense albums (but also brilliant) "Temple Of The Morning Star" and "In The Eyes Of God". I think they are good starting points.

They're opening for Soulfly in March here and I'm stoked. We don't get many shows and to have a band like Today Is The Day play is even more rare.

Cannot wait to hear some of this.
