Why would you detach a giants head like that tho what did the giant do

Amputechture is a solid follow up to what I consider their best album, Francis The Mute. While note as consistent or as mind blowing, there are still some amazing tracks and crazy performances. Take Day Of The Baphomets for example. Absolute fucking insanity, and for eleven minutes it barely gets dull. That’s pretty damn impressive. I also love the sax they throw in there, it just adds to the chaos. Oooh and also the main riff goes so hard in the verses. Just an awesome song. One of my other songs easily is Vermicide. Definitely one of their most conventional songs, but this is a song I grew up with, and I still love it. The chorus that has the back and forth with the instruments and the vocals is so awesome, and it’s sooooooo catchy. Tons of other solid tracks as well, like Vicarious Atonement, Tetragrammaton, Meccamputechture and Viscera Eyes. They have been very consistent up until now, and I don’t think this album is a letdown at all following their most acclaimed record

Vicarious Atonement - 8.5
Tetragrammaton - 8.5
Vermicide - 9
Meccamputechture - 8.5
Aslios Magdalena - 6
Viscera Eyes - 8.5
Day Of The Baphomets - 9.5
El Ciervo Vulnerado - 5.5
