A few times a year you run into music that blows your socks off. Stuff like this. Both heavy and original AF. And from my own little country, the Netherlands, nonetheless \m/
Ps: Busted my nut the moment the riffage started 2m36s into Chemical Burn.
Doom City is a concept album about a decaying, industrial, deserted, isolated place in an empty, resourceless desert.
Every song is about another aspect in this city; a political leader chanting to the inhabitants, a fight in a factory, an overview over the city, the view from the island thinking about the city etc.
The city is a metaphor for the patriarchy and the binary gender system - it's unsustainable, it's struggling to survive, it has to perish to make place for a new way of life.
