Title: Nano Nucleonic Cyborg Summoning
Genre: Avant-garde / Technical Death Metal
Country: USA
Year: 2006

Track List:

Another band that's definitely not like most other metal bands, whose sound once was described as "Metal in Opposition" as a reference to Rock in Opposition. Their later releases like "Horrorscension" were completely trashed by critics for being unnecessarily complex and technical, and while I agree that this kind of music is more interesting to play than to listen to, I like BtA's early stuff like this EP (the 2006 edition also contains two songs from their 2003 demo and some live tracks). As it was described in the Bandcamp comments: "Like looking into the eyes of Cthulu, this album cannot be described. Even trying to will melt your brain. Insane". Now combine it with the track names like "You Will Be Reincarnated As An Imperial Attack Spaceturtle":
