Wo Fat - The Singularity Deluxe 2LP Vinyl Editions
Limited edition is 250 copies on yellow and red color-in-color vinyl with black splatter!
Wo Fat returns with their seventh studio album, a record they feel is their most adventurous and exploratory yet. While not necessarily a concept album, its themes relate to existential threats and a dark destiny, a reflection of the times we’re living in.
The title, The Singularity, can refer to an environmental tipping point beyond which irreversible cascading feedback loops of climate destruction are inevitable; it can also refer to a point in the evolution of artificial intelligence and machine learning after which everything changes and goes beyond what we can control, potentially leading to humankind’s destruction.
These apocalyptic and sci-fi-based ideas also serve as metaphors for the struggle for truth and reality in the face of disinformation, manufactured facts and cultic thinking. In essence, the battle for the future of our planet and civilization.
Musically, The Singularity ventures outside Wo Fat's well-establish blues-based paradigm, keeping all the heaviness but also tapping into some 70’s fusion influences and more open jamminess.
All in all, it's the perfect return and elaboration of everything we love about one of the most iconic bands in all of heavy rock!
