"Normal love isn't interesting. I assure you that it's incredibly boring."
If you listened to Zs' Arms, the album I posted a couple of days ago, and didn't think it was enough, I give you Normal Love. Normal Love is like Zs, only heavier and more dissonant. They have a violin player, two guitarists, a bassist, and a drummer, and the amount of rapid fire noise they can procure out of their instruments is amazing. The album is relatively short, with 6 tracks at 32 minutes, but it is quite a masochistic form of music. Ndugo is the one track that is calm pretty much throughout the entire piece, but it quickly morphs into The Final Sarcophagus of Darkness, a piece as dark as it sounds.
This isn't official, but I have read that each piece was written by only one member, so I assume that is how the album maintains the atonal sound while not sounding like the same track over and over.
Listen to this album loud.
