orlandolovekill ...With head bowed & sympathies sheathed, I pay my respects and listen...and, as ever with meant., this is universally magnificent...No in memoriam dirge, nor bitter wail, meant. brings together in sound our ceaseless loss of humanity - forever between us, amongst us - and the defiant remembrance of man's story, within the embrace of haunting drones & myriad beats & soaring guitars & voice & and &... Lamentations don't get better than this...Life enhancing, truly...Peace to all, to all remember.

Name©®™ This latest offering from meant. effortlessly weaves together elements of industrial, post-rock, and ambient drones with found sounds, whispers and tribal singing to create a timely album for these distressing times.

A feat that both assaults, and rewards the listener, "never again, again" is by far meant.'s best work to date.

It's gripping. It's aching. It's yearning. It's pleading. It's triumphant. It's defeated. It's pissed. It's sad.

It's life.

This is historical sound art. Favorite track: there's always a caveat now, revealing a focal point by which both the tragic, and the absurd, are given meaning.

kristin ides There aren't really adequate words, but I know this is art because this is a challenge. And I know it is good art because this is an appeal to heaven - something we used to understand but ate out of ourselves with our appetites.

Therefore be careful lest the light in you be darkness. Luke 11:35 Favorite track: a blade in the dark.

about

written in response to the pogrom of October 7th, 2023.

for: those who are never coming home again, those who are still abducted, and you, who remain.

you are not alone 🖤

to: Joshua, Adam, Ray, Roberta, Moshe, Gary, Emily, Alyssa, Mendy, Sean and his family, Noah, Tali, Zach, Liam, Eddie, Tal, Gal, Yaniv, Orani, Ronnie, and Yitzy.

in loving memory of Elie Wiesel, and Isaac Bashevis Singer, whose literary works instilled within me the will to yet live in this dark, darkening world, and to believe in Light/Life, no matter how dark it gets.

“Never shall I forget that night, the first night in camp, which has turned my life into one long night, seven times cursed and seven times sealed. Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my God, and my soul, and turned my dreams to dust. Never shall I forget these things, even if I am condemned to live as long as God Himself. Never.”

― Elie Wiesel, Night

"That glimmer of light, surrounded by so many shadows, seemed to say without words: Evil has not yet taken complete dominion. A spark of hope is still left."

― Isaac Bashevis Singer, The Power of Light

Al-Husseini collaborated with Nazis in planning the ‘final solution’ in the Middle East. He was an ally of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, a reactionary Islamist group that gave birth to Hamas in 1987.
