'DSM-5' is a twelve song conceptual album from Blood From the Soul. Lyrically the album is written from the perspectives of human beings as well as sentient machines. Metaphorically it explores the relationship between consciousness and physical/psychological deterioration amid a multitude of stresses. Reading as both dystopian science fiction as well as poignant editorial on the turbulent present and our uncertain future. Verbeuren's razor-sharp percussion propels the musical vessel as Embury and Liverod's walls of strings and ambience infectiously build with imposing power.
