Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2017-01-12 
Bombastic metal, thrash death doom elements. Complex stuff taking it to another level for 2017, the new era. Screamo vocals over amazing drumming, killer guitars, bass. Does not rely on metal cliches however the tone, themes are familiar. Searing and heavy as heaven. For fans of Brutal Truth, Khanate. Thrill Jockey Records maintaining their eclecticism.

Lyrics are almost entirely undecipherable. If there are FCC violations that are decipherable to anyone, please make a note. But as it is, if they exist they are anything but blatant. HOWEVER - SEE LAST TRACK 10

1)* (4:02) quiet quick fade-in, launches into full on metal assault, 2/4 thrash beat. 2)* (5:26) complex, amazing drumming. 3) (5:58) full on assault with slow doomy parts, long fade-out 4) (7:39) big bombastic, but in a few minutes launches into a very different tone, almost sci-fi surreal doom. 5)* (8:12) tribal doom to start then a mathy beat, complex, epic changes, crazy good. 6)* (5:05) jesus h. Christ heavy and fuck, doomy but rockin, bleak morose song title and content, ends in chaos, blends into next (play together?). 7) (1:52) comes out of previous, big wall of riffage and drum pounding, instrumental. 8) (4:08) just upright heavy quality metal like you would want in 2017, no bullshit. 9) (1:55) a nod to Tommy Iommi (Black Sabbath guitarist) with dramatic clean "classical" arpeggio, spooky (could be a nod to Alex Lifeson too, "and the meek shall inherit the earth..."), but what it does is lull you into a false sense of peace that the next song annihilates. 10) FCC AT END AFTER THE SONG ENDS (4:09) holy shit a full on nuclear blast, assault, if this doesnt sear all the hair off your cochlea nothing else will, THE SONG ENDS WITH 0:14 REMAINING IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWED BY STUDIO BANTER CONTAINING THE F WORD. IF YOU KILL THIS TRACK IMMEDIATELY WHEN THE SONG ENDS ITS OKAY OUTSIDE SAFE HARBOR
