Review:

This self-described “cypher-metal” project is the work of Victor Love with Öxxö Xööx on vocals combining baroque-inspired chiptune with heavily synthesized cyber-metal. On his fifth release, MBR has finally put vocals on his music, using vocals in the invented language of Öxxö.

I really tried…really, I did. This was the most ridiculous thing that I have ever heard. It sounds like going into a video arcade in the early ’80s with bad metal playing, cookie monster vocals, and cheesy classical music all mixed together. I really don’t know what else to say except I hope to never hear this again.

If you want to give this a try, or just get stoned and listen to something completely ridiculous, this is for you, but not for me.
