07:20 - Apothecary In other news, this album is so addictive it should be a Schedule I drug [link]
07:12 - theFIST wormed are at willowtip, they toured with those 2
06:35 - Apothecary We'll just have to agree to disagree then, as much as I love both bands, I still consider Zeppelin and Deep Purple hard rock at the very most
06:34 - flightoficarus Big sale at Willowtip. Best band there besides Ulcerate and Gigan?
06:33 - Apothecary Doom/stoner/sludge has its roots in Sabbath, and power and speed/thrash in Priest. I'd say everything else was just bands taking those categories and then building upon them to create new ones
06:30 - deadone That doesn't preclude Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin being pioneers in heavy metal and as such considered part of the genre, even though they happily sit outside it sometimes.
It's been pretty quiet around Darkspace lately, our beloved real-life version of the Total Perspective Vortex, but thankfully its members are not resting on their well-earned laurels. Well, at least guitarist/vocalist Zhaaral isn't, fellow members Wroth and Zorgh seem to have taken a break for a while. Oh well, each to his own, right?
Sun Of The Blind is a side-project by one of the three Darkspace members. While it shares a few traits with the Swiss three-headed Total Perspective Vortex, most importantly the endless obsession with space and the void. Sun Of The Blind, however, approaches space from a far more melodic angle, being both easier on the ears and having a lot more grandeur. Skullreader thrives on the constant intertwining of melodic leads and majestic synths, pushing each other to astral heights. Eerie, dreamy breathtaker of an album.
