The Great Repression tells a story that is rooted in far-fetched science
fiction and reality simultaneously. Astral projection, time travel,
alternate realities, and outer space all exist inside a narrative that
is misanthropic and compassionate, pessimistic and
hopeful. It's a deep concept album that is meant for fans of science
fiction, metal, industrial, and electronic music. It's also a casual
listen for those that like heavy music that grooves.
