    Limited Edition Vinyl Pressing!

    Can't Keep A Good Giz Down - The Boys Are Back!

    A concept album to end all concepts, 'Murder Of The Universe' is the new collection by head-bending psychedelicists King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, coming on the heels of the February 2017 release of 'Flying Microtonal Banana!'
     
    'Murder Of The Universe' is a face-melting musical assault concerned with the downfall of man, the death of the planet.... the murder of the whole goddamn universe. Lit by thunderclaps and lightning, Murder Of The Universe inhabits a sonic landscape of death, decay, ossification, fossilisation, rebirth. There are simply no capital letters large enough to convey the EPIC nature of this collection.
     
    A disorientating experience, the album hinges on three distinct chapters that rise from larval beds, and whose lyrics should be carved in stone, squeezed from moss, discovered in ancient runes. And all the while a passing cast of characters imbue the tale with both human and non-human emotions.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nonagon Inifinity V2 Great album, almost like King Gizzard wanted to do Nonagon Infinity V2 with a bunch of references to their previous albums. A three parter that includes narration to help form a story and build the universe as you will. Not as good as Nonagon but still up there.
