Best Metal: 'Infinite Dissolution' by Locrian

The most accessible record yet from these experts of minimalism deigns to rock good and proper sometimes—especially right in the middle of the stunning ‘The Future of Death’—and houses a reedy concept about how we as humans can’t really comprehend the end of our race as we exacerbate it.
