一期一会 (Ichi-go ichi-e): "for this time only, never again". This japanese idiom is the central theme of the new, second, unbelievable album of the same name by the elusive psychedelic/avantgarde black metal enigma 夢遊病者 (Sleepwalker). Once again fusing drone, raw black metal, kraut/psychedelic rock, free-jazz, noise rock, and tribal ritualism to absolutely mind-melting effect, Sleepwalker's idea behind this new record was to take central superstitions that rule the rhetoric of eastern lore and funnel them through the prism of the modern world. The final result: the band's staple psychedelic black metal mind-fuck ritual gloriously preserved and burning brighter and more insanely than ever. Suspended between the visionary opposites of bands like Voivod, Zeni Geva, Oxbow, King Crimson, Ornassi Pazuzu, Lurker of Chalice, and Xasthur, with "一期一会" Sleepwalker have once again proven to be one of the most mind-expanding and visionary experimental black metal acts of our times.

(Press Note)

*Damn, This is some really awesome psychedelic raw black metal.  I'm at a loss of words as far as explaining how good this is and what to compare Sleepwalker too.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!  For This Time Only, Never Again was released via Sentient Ruin Laboratories on May 25th, 2018.
