Whereas Black One was an exercise in frighteningly evil blackness, this album is truly monolithic. I couldn’t help but think of 2001: A Space Odyssey. Also conjured up in my mind were images of what I picture ancient Egypt being overall, with lots of gargantuan statues and obelisks. The horns, the choir, Attila’s vocals and, of course, Lord’s and Soma’s underlying dro)))ne mastery. The highlights for me were “Hunting & Gathering (Cydonia)”, and “Alice”, though all were excellent. An excellent follow-up to their last Studio LP, Black One.
