05:26 - afu Although the film is only 'OK' and the book is really good, "John Dies At The End" is a horror comedy with some amusing gags. If you like to read, the second book, "This Book Is Full Of Spiders", is awesome.
23:56 - Redn1ght Talking about comedic movies, know any other-genre movies with genre-savvy main character like in Zombieland? (Even better if the tone is a bit sarcastic/snarky.
23:12 - !J.O.O.E.! The dog's dialogue was the star for me. Chuckled quite a lot at him.
23:09 - Apothecary I watched that 2 or 3 years ago, back when it was on Netflix. It's a good one. Interesting futuristic concept + humorous undertone. Good film
22:46 - !J.O.O.E.! Finally got round to watching A Boy And His Dog, which has been sitting on my hard drive for about 4 years. Quite the weird film to say the least, but quite amusing too.
21:40 - Redn1ght There's a difference between how Japanese and Koreans speak, Koreans are more toned down in a sort of mumble way. Japanese however are more clear with their sentence structuring and it usually carries over without experience.
Additional info "Faustian Echoes" is a single, two-part song based on Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's epic masterpiece Faust. Reaching over twenty minutes, "Faustian Echoes" is the longest song Agalloch have ever written.
Here's a little game I like to play: guess what genre the next Agalloch EP will be? From the blasting lo-fi of From Which This Oak to the strange semi-electronic remixes on The Grey to the acoustic laden, Wicker Man-themed The White, Agalloch has managed a wide spectrum on their music palette, which makes this guessing game downright impossible. One thing's for sure, the EPs are never similar in genre to the preceding album, right?
Awesome song. It was great live, although I think they should have kept the middle and end commentaries for the performance. Too bad they probably won't be able to play this one live again for a while.
BTW, those interested in buying a physical copy of this can now. The band has it on their official ebay for $12 + shipping. I don't think the CD version is a limited release, unlike the vinyl, so their should be re-pressings of the CD version.
Agalloch have never failed to deliver captivating music, and this EP continues that tradition of excellence. If you had always been curious to hear what Agalloch would sound like if they played a purely black metal song, here you go. This is 20 minutes of dark, aggressive black metal. Of course, the flourishes and crescendos that Agalloch fans know and love are still very much present, as is Haughm's impeccable sense of melody and Anderson's great lead guitar playing, with Walton remaining a crucial, but more subtle element on bass. Aesop's dynamic drumming is fast becoming a staple of Agalloch's sound, and again the man works wonders here. Overall, another fantastic EP from this fantastic band.
