King Gizzard – “Han-Tyumi & The Murder Of The Universe ”
Well the band is making good on that promise of five albums, that’s for sure. The first taste of Murder Of The Universe makes its way out in the world today. The album is broken into three chapters, each consisting of 6 to 9 songs. Its focus is loosely based on apocalyptic times, science fiction and the downfall of man. The band has shared the entire last chapter, which features heavily a speak ‘n spell cyborg narration over the band typically tearing down some heavy psychedelic thunder. While not quite as deep into the gimmick, it does bring to mind the band’s often overlooked second album Eyes Like The Sky, which underscored a western narrative written and read by Broderick Smith. So goes the band back into high prog territory and it’s hard not to follow them on their journey.
