Elegant 4-side Digipak limited to 500.
Second regular Album by QUAL from 2018 (The VINYL Edition is deleted!) On this CD William Maybelline takes the hints of his previous “Cupio Dissolvi” EP to a fully extended sulphurous formula. Eight tracks where traditional goth standards get updated to new, bizarre heights.
The opener “Black Crown” is a brooding industrial, almost power electronics assault. “Above Thee Below Thee” is a powered-up disco nightmare with EBM-like vocals, drenched in factory steam and urban filth. “Take Me higher” has some sort of electro-funk bassline to it and the closing track is a 155 bpm epitaph,reminiscent of Czech Doomcore pioneers Fifth Era. The past is gone, the future is corrupted. The is no time but the present to brutally unload this Existential Nihilism thus let “The Ultimate Climax” unfold!
