4/5 review from HEAVY BLOG IS HEAVY:

"... a thorough dedication to artistic vision, little or no compromise when it comes to execution and a devout dedication to blindsiding listeners. And we say that in the best way possible."

Track Name: These Tunnels Are Alive [Ft. Paul Maconko]
We, we mere Muscovites, we had no choice but to make this place our home. With, with lack of light, and echoed voices and chills that reach the bone. I wander through these pitch black tunnels, away from the comforts of exhibition. I can't help but think that these dreaded stories aren't superstition. Rational thought is abandoned like these stations. With every step I swear I hear an imitation. I can feel a consciousness that can't be fathomed. It is pressing down hard on me in this all-consuming darkness. We, we mere Muscovites, we had no choice. With, with lack of light and echoed voices. These tunnels are alive.
Track Name: Obsequious [Ft. Janick Klausen]
A legion of the obsequious. That they're unaware of what they stand for is but an irrelevant detail in the stubborn minds of their masters. The strings wear thin for some, but they'll never truly snap. There are a million and one ways to distract you from this fact. If only a mere thought were to leak, it's a generous notion that the masses would begin to question their allegiance. But if intentions were made undeniably clear, would they abandon their gratuitous loyalty? So when this age is looked back upon, there'll be no hesitation in recognising the absurdity that was taught as being the norm. It's only when we forget what we have been taught, and think with abstract minds, see with contextless eyes, that we begin to realise.
