No State

Godspeed You! Black Emperor have a new album out, Luciferian Towers, another state of the world address and an attempt to topple global capitalism with noisy instrumental music. Song titles like Bosses Hang Pt I to III and Anthem For No State give you an idea of where their heads are at. If you are familiar with their back catalogue there's nothing here that will especially surprise you but the power, drama and intensity in the playing are as impressive as they've always been.

Anthem For No State, Pt III

Despite the sentiment of the song titles, the gloomy cover art and the band's fury at the state of the world, Luciferian Towers is surprisingly uplifting. Some rousing sounds on this record.

"power, drama and intensity" says it perfectly.
