11:36 - Ilham Hahaha. Reading through the shoutbox this morning was hilarious. First God Buster wants to be elite on MS, Joe is a spy with secret accounts, and my picture has been taken from under a table. Keep the jokes coming.
10:44 - Netzach Maybe we are all godbuster having an internal monologue. I don't know what's real anymore.
10:43 - Joe Zombie How do we know YOU'RE not Joe? Seems like a classic case of reverse psychology to me.
10:42 - Netzach In other lives I have been called Joe, Joey and Jesus.
10:41 - God Buster 鬼 Holy shit ! Joes are everywhere ! I have to run for my life now !!!
10:39 - God Buster 鬼 Another thing, when I checked Illham profile I saw her photo which really looked like a photo taken by someone who secretly placed his mobile underneath a table. The photo is not real, again... another chill down my spine.
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.
