Today is the Day - Temple of the Morning Star (1997)
This album bleeds blackness. Pure self hate and grief are the only major emotions besides unholy perversions and sacrificial delight. Steve Austin is either a very scary man, or channels all his darkness into his records. But it is hard to imagine the submergence one must partake in to reach these pitiful levels of loathing and fleshly desires. And if it came naturally, what kind of mind are we dealing with here. The only thing I can affirm, is that deep inside of each and everyone of us, lies a primitive darkness, and this album seeks to reach us on that level. Whether or not your willing to Today is the Day in your life depends on how superstitious you are. How evil could a heavy metal record be?
How evil, indeed.
