15:58 - Karlabos I joined MA and Spirit Of Metal. MA has a good recommendation subforum, I'll give them that. But on the other hand there's not much more than that... Spirit of Metal is like this [link] so...
14:55 - Apothecary I can guarantee you that I would not know at least 75% of the metal bands that I do today had it not been for this site
14:54 - Apothecary We care about giving those who are just starting out and getting going their time of day and the exposure they deserve. It isn't JUST MS that does this, but we do seem to be where that attitude is strongest
Right from the get-go Wijlen Wij plunge their listener into the murky depths.
"Boreas" opens powerfully with subhuman vocals and organ cloaked power chords that sound is if recorded by an 8 track in some massive subterranean cave. Rather than the often slick and powerful production like a lot of their Solitude label mates sport, they went for a more primitive sound.
The sophomore release from this potent Belgian trio is a stimulating journey through four heaping slabs of funeral doom. However, this certainly isn't evil and soul-crushing in the traditional understanding of the style. With Wijlen Wij, clean vocals, suprisingly good melodies and grooves, and even a few audio samples combine to form some of the most upbeat and overall interesting funeral doom I've heard in quite awhile. Opener "Boreas" is nothing short of amazing.
That song was pretty awful to my ears. The mix of cleans and low FD vocals didn't really mesh well. The organ was very overbearing too. Also, maybe it's just the youtube quality, but the production wasn't that great either, sounded like the whole thing was pushed a step back, and it was pretty thin.
That being said I'm probably not gonna listen to this.
…boreas gave me a pretty strong Skepticism vibe, but that may have been mainly due to the organ. Solid release, will need a few more listens though. Fairly long album, so may take some time to go through it proper several more times.
