06:24 - deadone Oh and do you buy CDs/LPs? I notice your collection is only 43 albums. Obviously it might not be up to date.
06:21 - deadone And sometimes I buy a song based on a casual listen or even a single song (e.g. Arsis A Celebration Of Guilt when it came out).
06:19 - deadone Fearmeister, I don't necessarily have a buy threshold. Occassionally I buy random CDs without ever having listened to the band (e.g. Warbringer or Switchblade). Doesn't happen as much these days due to lack of decent CD shop
05:35 - Fearmeister What I found interesting is that the people who think 10s are next to impossible have a buy-threshold of ~7.5, while the people who have no problem giving out 10s have a buy-threshold of ~8.5. Just a cool thing I noticed
05:24 - Fearmeister Yea, so you like 2 of the songs less. There are plenty of people who gave out 9s to albums where they liked 2 of the songs a bit less than the rest
05:20 - deadone It'd be a 9 if songs like Sacrifice or Heavens On Fire were better. It'd be a 10 if these were excellent. However despite it's score of 8, large chunks are still soul catching.
01. Visions VII 02. Dissonance 03. Everblaze 04. On Your Own 05. The Sign 06. Visions VIII 07. Timeless 08. We Are All Leaders 09. Reverse Dawn 10. Mighty Wings 11. The Experiment 12. Beyond The Self 13. Glooms Of Cyan 14. Visions IX
The French melodic death band Fractal Gates establish a coherent album with a touch of dynamism in Beyond The Self. While it bears a strong consistency to their core sound which is at the meatier end of the subgenre's spectrum it displays the earnest ability to add considerable variation to the compositions.
"Hurraa ! all songs finished ! tweaking the last details now ! On a fini la phase composition ! maintenant on optimise les derniers détails ! Go Go Go !" - quoted from their facebook page. Looking forward to this...
Victory !! mix/master from Dan Swanö 100% finished ! He did an excellent job ! we REALLY like this new CD ! hope you will like it too ! Next : Video teaser, labels and release ! - from their facebook page. Hurry the fuck up!
Mmm, just fucking delicious. They did not disappoint. It's not that much different than ASOC aside from clean vocals . I love their sound so much. The production is flawless. This will be high on my list by the end of '13.
