The Art of Dying- Sadistik/Kid called Computer

 So I'm going to do something a little different and review a CD. 

The Art of Dying will tear your soul apart, I mean that in the best of ways, think of Pinhead, he is indeed bad ass and if I wanted to have someone pull my soul apart I would vote for someone like Pinhead to do it, anyways if you want someone with a little less nails and chains and vinyl may I suggest the recently released Art of Dying Ep.  This is not a "Horrorcore" album, there is no talk of eating baby's like you would hear on Mr Hung's album, no clever mock ups of Doors or Twisted Sister Songs like you may hear one Necro's album,  And thank the dead Christ no talk of Miracles like you may hear on the New ICP album.   He does not wear Strappy pants, there is no meth involved in his songwriting, and I would jump to the conclusion he knows how a fucking magnet works.  I would put this album in the horror genre for the simple fact that it goes inside of you and eats it's way out from the inside. They do say that Man is the warmest place to hide.  It is beautiful and painful at the same time.  IE A Serbian Film, Inside, Martyrs, Subconscious Cruelty. It is the equivalent of those films for me, it makes gutting a baby over its moms naked body beautiful, it makes torture and pain something you want to embrace,  it has you hoping that you can have a C-section with a pair of scissors, it makes death seem like a reasonable thing to live for.  At only 33 minutes this album packs more punches than Chris Benoit at a family reunion. This is the album of the year, no matter what kind of music your into, check this shit out, you will not regret it. They have created something that fans of anything from Sigur Ros to Burzum can appreciate.
