Manilla Road - Out of the Abyss

The careful listener detects the first twitches of metamorphosis here, as if long-running Kansas metal band Manilla Road, eternally surrounded by seas of swaying corn and yawning silence, had finally cracked open a forbidden tome and allowed tiny arteries of cosmic darkness to trickle into their previously science-fiction based space rock. Tellingly, the album immediately preceding this was grounded in the work of Edgar Allan Poe; Lovecraft is a natural progression, they say. The universe gapes open like a screaming wound; eons pass in the blink of a blind scabrous eye.
