An eerie departure from the black/death label. The word "uncomfortable" gets thrown around in reviews for this album a lot - and rightfully so. Not for good vibes.
Favorite track: Your Skin Won't Hide You.
The enigmatic and daringly experimental EMPTINESS have returned with 'Not For Music', their most adventurous album to date. The follow-up to 2014’s critically acclaimed “Nothing but the Whole”, 'Not for Music' was produced by Jeordie White (MARYLIN MANSON) , mixed by Sean Beavan (GUNS AND ROSES, NINE INCH NAILS) and sees EMPTINESS further their exploration of absolute sonic dread. Tracks such as "Meat Heart", "Your Skin Won't Hide You', and the aptly titled "Let it Fall" see the band break all conventions of black and death metal with their morose and innovative songwriting. Dark and foreboding, EMPTINESS manifest malevolent soundscapes and 'Not For Music' is a perilous journey into the unknown. Beware!
