Psychonaut 4 - Bad t.RIP
I could even stop to comment on the cover artwork and recommend listening to this neurotic, neurasthenic, insane album.
A long prologue opens the way for a mentally obscure work, made up of sudden changes of rhythm, in a swing of deeply destabilizing thoughts and emotions. The sense of emptiness and despair comes over the most intimate part by shorting the regular flow of consciousness. Still a good test of the Georgians, who in "Neurasthenia" let themselves be caressed by post-rock influences, blending them carefully - in a sick marriage - with their dsbm.
Almost perfect album
I don't like Psychonaut 4 so much because of the vocals. To be honest I really don't like the "Nattramn way to sing".
But yeah here's an exception. This album is almost perfect. Well played, well recorded and very emotive. Some tracks are true masterpieces. I think this is the best P4 album ever, and I think this is one of the best Post Depressive Black Metal albums you can listen to.
And yeah, the Maxime Taccardi's artwork is just wonderful, don't you think?
Favourite song: Sweet Decadance
