Gigan - Quasi-Hallucinogenic Sonic Landscapes (2011)

Previously on OPIUM HUM:
Gigan - The Order of the False Eye (2008)

Second and possibly best album from this criminally underrated band. The controlled chaos of tech death at its most gnarled, psychedelic, and all-around awe-inspiring. Light a spliff, turn this up loud, feel your mind catch on fire and slowly drip out of your ears.

Track listing:
1. Mountains Perched Like Beasts Awaiting the Attack
2. Suspended in Cubes of Torment
3. The Raven and the Crow
4. In the Tentacled Grasp of a Buried Behemoth
5. Transmogrification Into Bio-Luminoid
6. Skeletons of Steel, Timber, and Blackened Granite
7. Vespelmadeen Terror
8. The Fathomless Echoes of Eternity's Imagination

A vortex, pulling up yet pushing down
As though even cosmic omnipotence is conflicted

Pick yourself back up and try these:
Lost Soul - Immerse in Infinity (2009)
Altars - Paramnesia (2013)
