The Mind is an Enemy is straight ahead guitar driven heavy rock that inclues the throbbing elements of 7-string guitars and 5-string basses, paying tribute to the temple of "slow and low" that defines doom metal and stoner rock. The haunting, melodic, "prophet-in-the-wilderness" vocal style of Neil Hess blends extremely well with the heavy aggressiveness of the music. Powerful lyrics addressing everything from God's role in our world (or our role in His), to microchip tracking implants,to the war on terrorism, to the deterioration of civil liberties and the fleecing of America's working class, show that his background as a musician in the country's poorest major city (Cleveland, Ohio) serves as an ever abundant well of inspiration.
This album follows up Neil Hess' 2003 debut solo release "Animosity in Human Form".
