Blood Incantation - Hidden History of the Human Race

FIRE!

Blood Incantation's latest studio album is an incredibly technical, densely cryptic, nearly-intergalactic death metal experience into the world of the unknown, a sci-fi concept that'll sure leave engaged listeners with goosebumps without having to sacrifice its alluring atmospheres, energetic instrumentation and existential undertones. Truly one of the most enthralling albums of the year!

This album may be best described as a portal transporting mankind into an alien wasteland. Ever since I had Hidden History of the Human Race on repeat during late-night listening sessions, I've been having strange hypnotic dreams of alien abduction and savagery. A hauntingly torturous experience, I still remember instances of being pushed around, assaulted violently and mysterious chemicals getting tranquilized into my body. But through all of that, there was an alienating sense of comfort. Not a nightmare, but more of a mythological meditation. I felt really empty-headed in my sleep, as if I was truly levitating off the ground fortuitously. Ominous, mystical and full of atmosphere, it's just how I would describe this album. Would've preferred a little better mixing from Pete deBoer, but everything else is at least fairly solid!

Perhaps all the study notes and books I've been trying to chomp down before exams roll around have driven me mad in my sleep. Hey, at least it was just a dream! I woke up with my dick being green and a decapitated fly in my herbal tea, but I'm sure everything's perfectly normal! Nothing to worry about! ha ha ha
