That just made it into my top 10, but it's an absolute monster of an album. The video for "Forced Gender Reassignment" is as graphic as you can get, but oh so gory.

I don't really listen to any radio. Most of the music I consume is through Spotify and Last.fm recommendations, the We Are Hunted Top 100 Emerging Chart, Hype Machine (music blog aggregator), and through live support acts.
