no compromise, no regret in this 2012 JZ album from Moonchild. Part spoken word, part prog, part black metal. Vocals shoot between whispers and gargles and screeches and back in a flash, following the very delicious proggy bass and slapping drums and bubbling organ. Lyrics are a stitched together sluice of impressions, all about ancient buried secrets and promises. Made me fall in love with JZ all over again. Like exploring a dark menacing mad scientist’s lab that collapses into a whirling portal to astral depths that drops you off in a vault full of individually wrapped candy.
