Gospel - The Moon Is A Dead World

Brooklyn's now-defunct Gospel released one album, 'The Moon Is A Dead World'. It was recorded by Kurt Ballou (Converge), and as usual the tones/intensity of Ballou's craft shine-through magnificently. In my eyes/ears, this album is perfect -- start to finish its just a hardcore/prog powerhouse; the drummer provides a sonic-eargasm on every track, the guitar/synth allign (or collide) pristinely, the vocals keep the pace frantic, and the bass bellows (or Ballou's? lolz) to keep the masterpiece framed.

The unique sound Gospel merged into existence should be venerated for years to come by word of mouth and chance by ear -- I've yet to find someone who hears this album and is disappointed.
I've yet to find someone who hears this album and doesn't instantly regard it as a favorite.

In a word, "What Means of Witchery" is the soundtrack to my life.

The Moon Is A Dead World
