Finally we have a follow up to the 2014 hidden gem VIXI.
Self Punishment is a harrowing, droning wall of sound peeling through layers of the subconscious rather than the percussive onslaught of VIXI. Mountainous riffs ascend and drop you into gaping valleys like a bipolar mood swing. This is a meditative exercise in Sisyphean struggle. Bleak with only the faintest flickers of hope gleamed through the miserable, inky haze. This is not a comfortable listen.
