I'm not really a thrash metal guy. With that being said, I think King Gizzard might've converted me over to the dark side. I'm pretty much the most metal guy I know now.

By far this is Gizzard's most apocalyptic, heavy, and aggressive album yet. This album makes me want to punch my own face.

It's astonishing that Gizzard is able to genre hop so much and be successful at so much, and it's not exception for this record. My only complaint is that I feel that some of the rifts can get pretty ... read more

Gumboot Soup is just the superior version of Oddments.

Best tracks: Beginner's Luck, Superposition, ... read more

Polygondwanaland is King Gizzard’s most proggy, atmospheric, subtly electronic, and hypnotic album yet. And I fucking love it. Not much else to be said. It fucks. HARD.

Best tracks: Pretty much all of them, except...
Worst tracks: Tetrachromacy (if I had to choose)

So, Murder of the Universe.

This record is by far the most conceptual thing Gizzard has done in terms of actual storytelling, incorporating the spoken word aspects of Eyes Like the Sky and mixing the sound of their album Nonagon Infinity. I find the 3 chapters of this album super interesting story wise, but the first chapter in particular begins to get really repetitive, an issue that doesn’t plague the other sections.

While I love the sound of this album, I do feel that sometimes the ... read more
