Once again, my song of the moment is "The All Seeing Eye" by Alustrium.  That song is about 9 minutes of pure awesomeness.  My favorite portion of the song is from 6:33- 8:10.  Hell, their whole 2011 album "An Absence of Clarity" is killer, but "The All Seeing Eye" is my favorite song on it.  The album came on randomly during my drive with my iPod set on "album random" and I once again fell in love.  Alustrium released an album back in 2015 and I need to check it out, because this band is so freaking good.  Musically their material is complex without being "tech demo wankery riff salad" and their lyrics are strong and deep.  There is some seriously intelligent songwriting happening here.  I've only seen them live once (back in 2012 or so), and they absolutely tore it up!

This has been my song of the moment from Friday till today, because that's all anyone around me has been singing.  And since the celebration parade is on Thursday, that's going to be all anyone's singing all week.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6SosmpnWET4

Song of the moment is "The Silent Life" by Rivers of Nihil.  This is from their upcoming album Where Owls Know My Name.  I've seen Rivers of Nihil live before and I was sledgehammered by their insane musical skill, but felt that their music was kinda robotic.  It was like a tech demo with mindblowing tech but hollow as a game.  Anyway, something in my brain decided to give them another chance and I absolutely LOVED this song.  It actually has me looking forward to the album.  I love it when bands change my mind about them, because that means they're experimenting, evolving, and not just relying on tried and true formulas.
