This is album is dedicated to the sacred ego, that wellspring of individuality and unique complexity. Sing the song of the Inner Voice. Recite the hymns to the Celestial Will. Rebuke all desire to succumb to corrosive idolatry—be it the militancy of extremity, the beneficence of untempered ideology, or the divinity of cherished relationships. Rebuke the impulse to capitulation, to hide beneath of hard shell of callous disregard and secede from the world. We surrender our power only to those worthy of wielding it. And we will not hesitate to strip authority from and war against all those that prove unworthy.
Thou hail from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA. This is the band's fifth full-length album, amongst numerous EPs, splits, singles and collaborations. Released in Australia via EVP Recordings under licence from Sacred Bones Records.
I cannot stop listening to this beast! The hype is very well deserved-such a well crafted, sonic delight of an album from start to finish. Old school and familiar DM yet otherworldly at the same time. Very happy to have this in my life!! Quite simply my favourite death metal album of all time! Neil Grace
