Murder Of The Universe
A concept album to end all concepts, Murder Of The Universe is the new collection by head-bending psychedelicists King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard. The new LP is a sprawling, 21-track monster split into three distinctive chapters: ‘The Tale Of The Altered Beast,’ ‘The Lord Of Lightening Vs. Balrog’ and ‘Han-Tyumi And The Murder Of The Universe.’
Lit by thunderclaps and lightning, MOTU inhabits a sonic landscape of death, decay, ossification, fossilization, 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.
