King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard – Murder Of The Universe
Released: 23 Jun 2017
With absolutely no signs of slowing down, King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard bring their second psychedelic rock release of 2017, Murder Of The Universe which follows up from Flying Microtonal Banana.
Lit by thunderclaps and lightning, Murder Of The Universe inhabits a sonic landscape of death, decay, ossification, fossilisation, rebirth. It is a place occupied by wandering shape-shifting beasts, bleeding skies, pools of blood, great fires and mushroom clouds; a planet rent asunder by conflict.
A disorientating experience, the album hinges on three distinct sections that rise from larval beds, and whose lyrics should be carved in stone, squeezed from moss, discovered in ancient runes. And all the while a passing cast of characters imbue the tale with both human and non-human emotions.
