It's Over - Final Thoughts About Deloused In The Comatorium

This review took me over a month to write, but it was well worth it. After spending time with an album with such complexity, it's caused me to think very deeply about the music I myself write.

TheRealMusician Recommends:

If you want to take marketing your music to another level, then I can't recommend enough John Oszajca's music marketing manifesto. My favorite aspect of his complete program was his stance on email marketing, where he really leverages the that "1000 true fans" philosophy.

His website is a bit hokey (Flaming guitars? Seriously?), but his program really shows independant artists how to get a leg-up on signed artists.

There no longer is the option to be a shallow thinker; an album like Deloused (when considered intentionally) changes the way you think.

The story of Cerpin Taxt, although very tragic, is an incredibly imaginative convergence between a reality we all understand involving death and addiction, and a fantasy dream world that most of us could never consider in any fantasy.

I won't give the album a "rating" or a "score", but I hope that you would instead allow this album to let you think differently about music, art, and creativity.

I cannot give any higher praise to this album - Andrew Muller

So rather than spending time breaking down and judging, that you would just trust it, just a little bit.

As an extra note, if you haven't heard about it already, I've written a vast expansion onto this interpretation. After writing this guide, everyone was so excited about it, that I was encouraged to take it even further and write interpretations for every single line on the album.

I delved deeply into the storybook that Cedric Bixler-Zavala wrote, into the album, and drew from every resource that I could find to create book that translates and describes every line in the book.

This project is called the "Deloused In The Comatorium Song Translation Guide", and you can find it here.

As a parting gift, here is a video that I think is hilarious. Thank you for joining me on this incredible journey of discovering this story with me.

About The Writer

My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.

If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.

Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot. 

I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
