Right, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are absolutely fucking mental. They’ve embarked on their next genre hop and it’s thrash metal done in its purest form; basically just screaming at us for not looking after the planet.

He just comes across like an artist who isn’t anywhere near as woke as he wants us to think he is, and huge budget production won’t hide the fact he is borrowing everyone else’s style rather than crafting his own.
