It is pure nihilism looking outward and not hesitating to reflect what it sees and feels in a brutally honest way. But what is truly horror-inducing about "Temple of the Morning Star" is that this is not the voice of Many Happy Returns - Today Is The Day - Willpower (Vinyl hermit staring disdainfully through his blinds and casting aspersions onto the world. Rather this is the voice of that nihilistic hermit that dwells in a realm of your soul that you'd rather forget was there.
But we all possess it. The grand triumph of this album is that it makes the listener admit that evil dwells within each and every one of us. By suppressing that evil the "evils" of this world are allowed to permeate. Steve Austin, you are what Maynard James Keenan wishes he could be. Yeah it's brutal and ugly, but a masterpiece none the less. Guess what, the emotion put into this album is real.
Steve Austin didn't ask for Many Happy Returns - Today Is The Day - Willpower (Vinyl permission first, he just did it. I don't enjoy all of the lyrics, or the samples, they can be quite offensive. The album as a whole is an incredible work, I haven't heard anything like this before and probably won't again. I will say that I had an autographed copy of this work that I lost but own the mp3 version. Btw, the Sabbath Bloody Sabbath cover is better than the original.
The liner notes to this reissue are compelling reading, and inspirational, LP. Hats off to anyone who can muster the courage and wherewithall to make music, or art of any form, in EXACTLY the way they personally see it, without lowering to common denominators, and with the determination and hope that others will eventually enjoy your labors.
The struggle to make your art accessible to others, even in this day and age, is what separates the "artists" from the legends. Having been a clear influence and sounding board for commercially successful bands such as Mastadon and Lamb of God, Today Is The Day deserves and often gets kudos from many people in the tight-knit little circle of musicians who resist the whole hardcore-numetal-thrash-grind-whatever tags imposed by label-obsessed media conglomerates.
Austin and Co. And that's why we love them. One person found this helpful. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. Translate all reviews to English.
