Down I Go - Tyrant (2008)

Genre: Hardcore/Progressive

A concept album about various tyrannical world leaders from both past and present, something that frequently leaves you feeling like you've made an unwelcome delve straight into the head of a crazed maniac. A schizophrenic blend of sunny harmonies, off-kilter time signatures, unhinged screams and an eight-piece string section only adds to this and results in an album that is seriously so much fun! If you don't want to sing along to the chorus of "glory to Stalin the great!" during the track Joseph Stalin then you probably need to consider lightening up somewhat because it's just plain chaotic fun. Anyway, enjoy!
