16:50 - Zaphod True that, all of their albums are pretty solid.
16:46 - Frodd yep, their average is better than most. babel's tower is the album's best, seeds of tyrants is the weakest.
16:44 - Zaphod Typical of them is good enough for me. I liked the first song they released (think it was the title track) but the second one was really boring. And I also listened to Babel's Tower which was great.
16:41 - Frodd definitely yes. there's a weak song or two, a very good song or two, and the rest is typical of them
16:38 - Zaphod I should give this new Primordial thing a spin.
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.
