15:42 - Marcel Hubregtse Oops misinterpreted the figures hahahaha. A euro now costs 1.1117 dollars whereas it cost 1.13 dollars back in April.
15:38 - Marcel Hubregtse You got more Euros for your dollar last April than you get now. So that is a negative trend for you.
15:28 - Apothecary As for the UK leaving the EU: Not sure yet what the full implications of that will be, but one is already lower dollar to Euro exchange rates, which could help my wallet for Roadburn again next year. So thumbs up(?)
15:20 - Apothecary Yo Karlabos, thanks for linking this yesterday. Sounds effing awesome [link]
15:14 - Netzach @Spaw Didn't know that, interesting times indeed...
Within the realm of experimentation in the metal genre, Sunn O))) and Ulver need little introduction. Both have consistently pushed boundaries over the past decade, the latter barely even being metal anymore at this point. So really, it was only a matter of time before some sort of joint effort between them spawned in 2014's Terrestrials, which can only be described as a complete and natural synthesis of the parties involved.
Eternal Return is probably one of the most eerie and stunning songs I've heard in a while. At first it sounds like the two bands are doing their best and their darkest Earth impression...which causes an unwilling swell of desolation to befall you. Once the vocals hit, it goes to a brand new level.
I mentioned in my review that it'd be cool if more work was done between the Sunn O))) guys and the Ulver guys, but in a way that's already a reality. Stephen O'Malley actually has his Æthenor project with Garm and Daniel O'Sullivan, anyone who enjoyed this collab should definitely look into it.
