Track Premiere: Scientist – ‘Magick Mirror’

Chicago’s Scientist are thinking big. The press release for their new album, Barbelith, describes the album’s central themes as “the search for life’s meaning through the use of psychedelics and the occult means, only to discover that you haven’t even been born yet.” Based off The Invisibles comic book series, the album is dense and experimental.

Experimenting is something you hear plenty of on “Magick Mirror.” Built on a base of churning sludge metal, there are healthy doses of black metal and progressive music added in throughout. Listen to “Magick Mirror” below and pr-eorder Barbelith here.
