All Tongues (and Ears!) Toward the New Leviathan Song
“All Tongues Toward,” from Jef Whitehead/Wrest’s Leviathan, is one of those songs that make you marvel at how sounds can be so ugly and so beautiful at the same time. The eight-and-a-half minute track is hypnotic, disgusting, and hypnotically disgusting, the kind of tune which makes me wish iTunes’ visualizer had a “nightmare” setting. It would be worth listening to this song just to hear the ghostly, moaning guitars alone… but the fact that it’s so incredibly layered also means it’s going to reward repeat listens and attention to detail. I know because I just blasted the thing three times in a row.
Yeah, this is a good song.
Listen to “All Tongues Toward” below. It will appear on Leviathan’s new album, Scar Sighted, which comes out March 3 on Profound Lore.
