Wow.

Not much more can be said*, Verwüstung's …Watercolor… is that… Wow. Listening takes you on almost a journey; it's emotional, melodic, heavy, dark, atmospheric, ambient and everything in between.

You wake up; it's early… too early, just after dawn. It's the middle of fall, the air is cool and the ground is frosted, you're just about to fall back asleep again when you hear shouting, fighting. You know what's going on and you try to hide from it, you put the pillow over your ears to try and block out the noise, but to no avail. The yelling turns to screaming, you can hear things breaking, glass shattering on the floor, paintings and heirlooms being thrown up at the wall, and then… Silence. A single warm tear flows down the side of your face onto your pillow.

Rating: 7 I Googled the discussion at the beginning and apparently it's taken from the movie Dolores Claiborne. :/

Is that good or bad? I dig that part of the song/album although it's a bit depressive to hear but that was the point after all...

Just a bit surprised. I dunno, I guess it's nice to see bands that take inspiration from things that aren't so cliche. Like I know Lovecraft is great and Tolkien had some pretty cool ideas, but I don't need 300 albums about their creations.

I guess that's what first really turned me onto Shining, when they lifted quotes from movies like Identity and Prozac Nation. Movies that are by no means considered classics or even "great".

Besides, I'll take anything that contributes to the atmosphere and that depressing bit at the beginning totally sets the mood for the rest of the song-album.

My favorite movie quotes in music is still Lurker Of Chalice's "This Blood Falls As Mortal, Pt. 3"
That shit really breaks me.

"I'm hollow"
That was scary.

I don't know if it's scary but it definitely wasn't "nice" to listen to. It's really unsetting when you stop and think about it, specially because it's from a movie about a writer who commits suicide. It's not really depression, but pure emptiness of feelings.
"There's nothing behind my eyes. I'm the negative of a person"

The scary part is the possibility of this being true. If it is so, then it is really, as you said, unsettling.

The movie is called Sylvia and yes... It's a true story, the movie shows the life of Sylvia Plath.

That woman must've had a "difficult life" to get "featured" on LoC.

Purchased as in "legally downloaded"? Because if you don't mean that I would be interested to know where you got a physical copy.

Oooh, I thought he had a big cartel for Verwüstung considering those Airs tshirs he has on a big cartel link. I'll probably end up buying it and the debut as well.
