Crippled Black Phoenix MANKIND: THE CRAFTY APE Vinyl Record

Crippled Black Phoenix MANKIND: THE CRAFTY APE Vinyl Record
Vinyl LP pressing. 2012 release, the fifth album from the British Post-Rock band. (Mankind) The Crafty Ape is upon us and it marks a new chapter in the history of the band. The thematic focus for this album is firmly planted in the corruption of mankind and injustice, but also ultimately in the hope that all is not lost, and that there's a common thread connecting people of like-minds wherever you may travel. The music and themes have been created as to represent the world inside and outside of the mind, with no compromise. On (Mankind) The Crafty Ape the band showcases a new level of focus, and that's not to say there was a lack of focus on previous efforts, it simply says that the methods and attitude in making the new album are another move toward finding the total uncompromised potential within the music.
