Music Mondays: Murder Of The Universe

“Without music, life would be a mistake” – Friedrich Nietzsche

I have decided to challenge myself to get out of my comfort zone with the music I listen to. This week a fun album that I found is called Murder Of The Universe by King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.

It is a 46-minute rock opera consisting of three parts, them being:

  1. Altered Beasts
  2. A Legendary Battle
  3. Story of a Confused Cyborg

The main part of this album is the third. All that the cyborg wants is to be human but there are two things that humans can do that he cannot:

  • vomit
  • die

He so badly wants to be human that he makes a machine that can vomit. The machine cannot survive all of the vomiting so he plugs it into himself. The only problem being he cannot figure out how to stop the machine. So he just keeps growing and expanding through the universe faster than the speed of light until the entire universe is just vomit.
