Sometimes music is confusing, but that's why it's so great. Being approached with something so alien that it takes a bit of processing is honestly a treat, and Self Hypnosis' "progressive industrial metal" takes the cake as one of the more unique listens I've had in a long time. Taking from doom metal, industrial music, psychedelia, and even as far as hardstyle, this underground supergroup, featuring members of Camel of Doom and Esoteric, moves with a mechanical gait and technicolor aura. This is heavy, really heavy, but has a bizarre atmosphere reminiscent of its members' other projects -- their debut Contagion of Despair turns the familiar on its head and makes your psychedelic dreams into nightmares. Listen to an exclusive stream of Contagion of Despair below.
