17:03 - !J.O.O.E.! Feels like Aluk Todolo meets Virus / Ved Buens Ende. Can't think of anything better.
16:48 - !J.O.O.E.! Hory shet, these guys have nailed psychedelia [link] sounds like a pretty immense record (have only skimmed it)
16:16 - Apothecary Haha, Ghostface tore the dude who jacked up the price of the AIDS pill here in the U.S. a new asshole. Fucking love this guy [link]
16:14 - Nimlot Yeah, we're super tolerant, we've got Gary Moore, for Christ's sake.
15:45 - Apothecary Also, I usually can't stand power metal, but I'd be interested in a BM/power fusion just for the hell of it. Maybe it'd go down much better than I'd think!
15:44 - Apothecary ZÖN guy, if you're still around, just know that we're way more tolerant on accepting nonmetal and borderline-metal stuff around here... it has its limits, but we're nowhere near as strict about it as MA
15:11 - Fearmeister I prefer a dutch-ovened sound personally
Something (probably the wine) about France seems to facilitate experimentation more regularly than the various something's about other countries. This album, an industrial-tinged instrumental black metal disc, suitingly for a French band, belongs on the list of French experimentalisms.
"Experimental" here doesn't mean that what these guys do isn't like what others before them have done, it just means that these guys avoid clichés and heard-it-a-thousand-times-before-isms like my old French uncle-in-law avoids toothbrushes and dentists (and American sports... guy's a prick). What they do sounds distinctly like their own music, not like a rehash of old Darkthrone, say, or Emperor, or Mayhem. A good thing for a modern black metal band for the most part.
This albums is better during the industrial black moments. It seems that Ambient sections are used just for the sake of having ambient sections, they are totally boring and soulless. On the other hand, drumming is very good, especially compared to the rest of album
I've know Spektr since they released their second album. I have to say this is a disappointment compared to Near Death Experience and even Mescalyne. I urge every one of you who didn't like this one to forget how average it is, and try Near Death Experience.
