00:29 - MetalDoomMaster I feel like I'm not getting the most out of it then haha. I've been here for 5 years, I hate my major, I still have another year left, and Houghton Michigan is boring as absolute shit.

00:27 - flightoficarus86 And don't tie down and have kids until you have made some pretty strong headway with your career. I've got a masters and am doing decent, but I wish I had gone a bit further before starting a family.
00:24 - flightoficarus86 Don't rush to be done with college though. Best years of my life. I'd go back to those times in a second.

When terms like anti-life, nihilism and suicide become part of the atmosphere music evokes or, to say it better, when music is the outcome of anti-life, nihilistic and suicidal emotions then you really know what to expect, something extremely deep and utterly depressive that leaves scars on the listener's soul. Malefic, the one and only sullen soul behind Xasthur, knows well the art of suicide and how to present it through wailing and bleeding ambient-oriented suicidal black metal soundscapes and this is what he did, for one more time, with "To Violate the Oblivious".
I have tried this a couple of times and it's not working that much for me. I can see why others love this album but for me, it actually passes without having much of impression of any kind on me. Enough to say that my most favorite track is the simplistic outro.
