Before you listen to it, I would like you to keep a few things in mind because this album is a bit out of the ordinary.
This particular album was composed as sort of a "soundtrack" rather than an album of just songs one after the other, so you will notice there is a significant absence of vocals, with the exception of three songs. This album was written, recorded, and produced solely by myself, except for the intro track, "Kranker Maschinen Schrei" which was written and recorded for this album by Jürgen Bartsch of Bethlehem (Deu). There is an elaborate story to accompany the music, but this will be expanded on in the future when this becomes available as a physical release. For now, consider this album to be the soundtrack to a dystopian film noir set in a technologically advanced future world of religious cult elitism, supreme artificial intelligence, and glorified drug addiction from the the desperate gutters of an industrial wasteland. It's all meant to be very cinematic in approach, though some might find the consistent implementation of electronic / darkwave / trip-hop elements to be somewhat intimidating. This is probably the most abstract Benighted in Sodom album, and also the longest one up to this point.
As I said before, this album will be physically released eventually, but I would like for it to be heard now instead of 2 years from now.
Try to keep an open mind, and be prepared to absorb something quite different.
The sample that's heard during the 4th song (Children of a Lesser God) is from the 2006 movie Silent Hill.
