井内賢吾 - 犬神と家畜
i'm not sure why the first album that i posted by 井内賢吾 wasn't 犬神と家畜. it may have been because of the sheer revulsion that i have experienced when listening to this album. it is perhaps the blackest album that i have ever heard. it's very difficult for me to write anything about this album because of that.
to give you some idea of what you're about to hear (even if you did download the previous album by this madman that i posted, nothing will prepare you for this; the two albums are quite different), i'll explain to you the folklore behind at least part of the name (which reads as "Inugami to Kachiku", or "Dog-spirit and Livestock"). in shinto belief, an inugami was a dog spirit which would do your bidding if you summoned it. or, more specifically, if you made it; you see, an inugami is made by tying up a dog (or burying it up to its neck in the ground) and then placing food just out of its reach. the dog starves (or its head is cut off), and it returns from the dead as a ravenous servant which will bring about violence at its masters commands . . . if it chooses to. the inugami could just as easily turn on its "master". just as the inugami would be unforgiving for the cruel nature of its death, this album is also completely unforgiving in its delivery and its vision.
this album will eat you alive.
