Okay, again when you think you heard everything...well, you haven't. I bet my left buttcheek that Paternoster is the most obscure/ depressing/ call 911 album you ever heard. I frankly challenge the progosphere, this one's hard to top.

The guy who's singing is SO down the tubes, I have to chuckle. I mean the general mood is LOW. Nothing positive is coming out, but you have to take this second degree! No one in their right mind could write such darkness and be serious. The music is not complex but trippy, with funeral organ and a lack of diversity. Some songs feel like they have no real beginning or structure but they do have some snippets of melody.

Think a massively sleep deprieved Peter Gabriel who got dumped and lost his cat on the same afternoon, who sings about how the world's a gigantic pool of crap accompanied by a bluesy-King-Crimson soundtrack.

A curiosity you have to hear before you kick the bucket. Unpredictable, laughable and 100% fascinating.
