    I agree. It's a fun listen! Hoping there is more Black Light Burns material in the pipeline, but this was a pleasant surprise and would like to hear more.

    I listened to this on the way home from work yesterday and on the way to work today. It's great! And I'm not even a fan of Limp Bizkit or Black Light Burns.

    Hey, if I like this, you think Black Light Burns might be something I like? I've never heard it.


    I think that Crystal Machete sounds kinda like a non-angry non-depressed NIN mixed with Aphex Twin.

    Forget to listen to this when he posted it the other day on FB. Really cool, very experimental and unique.

    Borland is such an amazing musician :)

    I've always liked Wes Borland as a guitarist and the vibe he creates. The final track on Limp Bizkit's Three Dollar Bill album is amazing I think. :)

    sure, If you like this, Lotus Island might be your favourite. Cruel Melody is an easy listener but The Moment You Realize You're going to fall needs some time. The cover album sucks.

    So, I've been meaning to write this

    Track 2 of Crystal Machete, Vltava, has part of an Arcturus song. I'm not one to put down bands for sounding like other bands, especially since I really like the song Vltava. But it's got one part that is an Arcturus song, dead on. I just gotta figure out which. Any other Arcturus fans hear it?

    Liking this a lot. Have listened to it all the way through at least once the past few days. Sounds like the stuff I like to record but never finish.
