IML Goes to War

We went into enemy territory with this album, exploring themes harder than any themes we’ve ever explored before. The result is perhaps are most consistent album to-date. Despite a band size numbering in the teens and 14 tracks, this album, perhaps more than any of our others, sounds like we all got together in a bunker, and recorded it together. Attention!
