Australian psychedelic-rock squad King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are getting ready to murder the universe with their new LP “Murder Of The Universe” the second of an absurd quantity of five albums that they plan on releasing this year. It’s a sprawling, nigh-incomprehensible 21-track concept album about the apocalypse or something, and they’re sharing it in three 13-minute chunks that they’re referring to as “chapters.” The first was “Han Tyumi and The Murder Of The Universe” and now they’ve shared a new chapter called “The Lord Of Lightning Vs Balrog,” which includes “The Lord Of Lightning,” the track that they performed on the Late Night With Conan O’Brien Show, last month. The whole thing comes with a massive video directed — sorry, created  by frequent collaborator Jason Galea and Ben Jones, which finds the band performing in the middle of the woods while some freaky druidic ritual takes place. Experience that below.
