Blissful Anguish: A Conversation with Lingua Ignota // Heaviest of Art 

(via Heaviest of Art)

Beneath the glitter and gold of LINGUA IGNOTA's Caligula lies a fragmented being torn asunder by the demons of man himself. Though this defies the perception one may get from initial observation of the album cover, it is a representation of the front many put up to conceal the pain and suffering underneath. The album's ability to resonate with many across the globe is an indication of where and who we are in contemporary society, highlighting the critical issues happening amongst us. Caligula may not tell you what you want to hear, but it'll tell you what you need to hear.
