Welcome to the kingdom
Of a sacred self-deceit
Where people give up freedom
For ostentatious majesty
For their masters' use
They hide in a fictive world
Afraid to see the truth
And the atrocities it holds
You who turn our life into a living hell
Selfish and obsessed with wealth
Your minds are too weak to get
One day your black feast will end
Your illusionary justice
Is a triumph of hypocrisy
The law protects the bashers
In the service of autocracy
Those who dare to disagree
Are thrown to rot in prison
Forget the liberty
And fall deep into fascism
If every time you see an outrage
Neglecting is all you do
No one will come to your aid
When it happens to you

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
