Call it a single, call it an EP, call it an album, call it whatever you want. This one-track, 40-minute art-metal curiosity buries medieval classical lute somewhere amidst its sludge -- and then, at the 23-minute mark, old-school-industrial Test Dept. quasi-tribal 20-drummers-beating-on-oil-barrel imitations of Brazilian rain-forest rhythms, which then wind down to some halfway decent whoosh. This is music for the post-death metal-concert chill-out room; it's rather lovely in the background at home as well, while you're reading or doing your taxes perhaps.
