Like God has his own special way of talking to his loyal ones through Bach's klavier, Satan disposes of an army of darkness-dwelling cursed ones.

Hi! I was pretty surprised to see you haven't yet rated Exuma's self-titled debut album. Is there a reason for that, because listening to it I felt like it was a really unique album that you'd appreciate a lot :)
