Lumen - "The Man Felt An Iron Hand..."
The band is Lumen, and the full title of the album is "The Man Felt An Iron Hand Grasp Him By The Hair, At The Nape. Not One Hand, A Hundred Hands Seized Him, Each By The Hair, And Tore Him Head To Foot, The Way You Tear Up A Sheet Of Paper, Into Hundreds Of Little Pieces." No, really. The tracks are named simply by roman numerals. Instrumental math-folk at its very best. III is a highlight.
