Pictured in the graph below, 'Forever' ('17) has accumulated accolades, which public dictionary defines as "an award or privilege granted as a special honor or as an acknowledgement of merit."
Track 01 | "Forever" | This is a song that you must listen to on it's own and also with the music video, because both times you'll feel something new. To start, you'll hear a demonic warped sound byte as the guitar and bass riff accelerate and the drummer, Jami, is introduced additionally as a vocalist. Red vinyl-clad demons, a body rising out of a blood bath, the band playing within a pit of fire, and a person being choked to a gory death are avant-garde horror highlights.

Track 02 | "Kill the Creator" | Visually sculpted as a 3D-modeled CGI music video of a distorted body floating within crimson red lighting. The instrumentals feature patterned heavy drops accelerating and decelerating combined with harsh and fast vocals; an addicting source of energy! The end of the song is corrupted intentionally by glitch sound effects.
Track 04 | "Bleeding in the Blur" | Favorite music video and also favorite song from this album. Directed by Max Moore, the electric blue is eclectically contrasted with the motif red. Vocals here are addressed by Reba; her voice is so striking! The band members play a portion of this song in glow-in-the-dark body paint under UV light, while the rest of the narrative occurs at a warped abandoned warehouse.

Track 05 | "The Mud" | Also a visual created by 3D-Modeling & VFX, a skeleton crawls through blood, atomic bonds, bones, and silver chains. Around 2M:55 the tempo and energy of instrumentals climaxes around the same time we see a dog violently on the hunt towards the skeleton.
