Mose Giganticus - Gift Horse

Mose Giganticus - Gift Horse from 2010 is one of my favorites from the Relapse Records Bandcamp. Few concept albums tell their story so well as this one does. The story here being "the struggle between a vengeful god and the deposed angel Lucifer leading to the Battle of Armageddon". It's starts with the Mastodon proggyness of "Last Resort" and the lines

master of light
creator of sky and sea

And ends with the massive riffing and soloing of "The Seventh Seal"

you keep telling me I'd have everything
you promised me everything I want
and you'd keep telling me you're going to help me
that you're going to save me, but you won't
and now I'm in too deep
all I have left is sleep
