“The Ape Of God” is a medieval reference to the trickster archetype, or the devil. The trickster archetype is associated with the following characteristics as described by C.G. Jung: "A fondness for sly jokes and malicious pranks, His power as a shape shifter, his dual nature, half animal, half divine, his exposure to all kinds of torture, and - last but not least - his approximation to the figure of a savior.”
One of the greatest musical entities to befall mankind return with their new albums “The Ape Of God”. The simian worshipping collective of Aaron Turner (Isis, SUMAC, Mamiffer), Nate Newton (Converge, Doomriders), Caleb Scofield (Cave In), and Santos Montano deliver triumphant works of amazement and wonder with their new albums “The Ape Of God”. The new OLD MAN GLOOM albums will indeed be looked upon in complete awe, just like how the apes became mesmerized when they looked upon the monolith in the first act of the movie 2001.

as a follow up to Sunbather, this hits all the right notes. I'd say it's more melodic, as opposed to the wall of sound style of Sunbather, so in a way it's even more accessible than that album. in any case, New Bermuda is a fantastic black metal experience. palehorse666

Little Rocks Pallbearer have truly build the Foundations of Burden and it's structure is glorious. One of my favorite bands currently.
