I doubt that kvlt metal enthusiasts spend much time perusing The Escape, so I'll avoid the effort required to truly categorize these sounds. But LORD TIME have managed to create something genuine and unique within the confines of harsh black metal. There is a longing here that is tempered by a self imposed separation...a want for compassion that is constantly trumped by a need for isolation. These are dark sounds - primitive and devoid of any warmth whatsoever. Eight untitled tracks on each side, and even though the songs themselves are repeated, the ambience in between the tracks manages to create a completely different vibe when you flip the tape. This subtle mind trick alone makes Forgotten Future a legendary release, but the sounds that comprise the whole experience take this production to another level. Intense sounds, from an intense label. I'm not an expert, I just know what I like.

(there's actual blood on the tape, in case you needed the evil bar raised just that little bit higher)
