Once again the dark has gripped this ill-fated land
Famine, war, diseases, unnecessary pain
Something has to be done to find a way
Out of this destiny's sinister maze
Tension is growing, patience is running out
People are ready waiting for a command to start
Seems that the story will soon come to an end
Culprits can not escape the punishment
Years of despair have blackened their hearts,
Now they feel no remorse
Only one thing is left in their minds
A desire to kill their lords
Change of epochs brings hope, but was this one true?
Their past insanity is now replaced by a new
Once they get the power, oppressed start to oppress
Dissidents will become food for the human thirst for death
A new age of slavery has begun
Starting the script once again
No escape from this endless circle
Of human pain

Less sludge and more death metal, anchored in a progressive metal framework, with even more hilarious lyrics about slugs than ever before, what we have on Esoteric Malacology is Slugdge at the peak of their songwriting powers. Is this gimmicky? Sure it is, but much like Nekrogoblikon play amazing melodic death metal with a fixation on goblins and bears, Slugdge do the same here with an angrier, progressive death metal lens to express the joys as well as sorrows of the world of slugs. Heavy as hell, quite varied from song to song, and full of compelling riff craft and surprises, do not sleep on this one. Ippocalyptica
