It never ceases to amaze me whenever I discover great stuff through random encounters, and in Antediluvian's case, my mind was blown...then its remains were consumed by dark figures I had never seen before.

Well to be honest, it wasn't technically a random encounter as I hungered for more black/death metal after Akercocke's bitter demise and I guess that was where I made my first and last mistake. A year later, in 2013, I found myself in hell; Bölzer, Tribulation and the icing on the cake, Antediluvian's peculiarly-titled album λόγος or "Logos" which was used by Heraclitus to describe the principle of order and knowledge.

It was originally released as a casette to a select few people I think, or something to that effect. It's not officially out just yet.

It's a Greek word, pronounced as "logos". Means "reason" in English.

Yeah this is the word's second meaning! Maybe this is what they want to say! I am a greek so i can confirm that. to be precise, it is pronounced "loghos".

Rating: 8 Finally listened ti this. It is really great but the vocals do not work for me.Also, there are not enough variations .The best part for me is production which gives an under the dust feeling to the whole record.

Yes, this is total otherworldly shit... I feel like being transported somewhere. I am listening to this in the middle of the night and I actually want to switch the lights on for chrissakes.

  The production on this is kind of ingenious, like its coming from some old crypt. It sounds like they put pillows in their bass drums or are using those drum mallets covered in fuzz to make it sound so distant and dusty.

Easy enough but Antediluvian means, "of or belonging to the time before the biblical Flood. Neato.

It also means the time before war, especially American Civil War. Good to see these stupid GRE words having some usages somewhere

....Are you remarking on it being kind of an extravagant word?.. It really is. Simply put it just means very, very, old.

If you used antediluvian in part of a writing exam then thats pretty rad Words are cool though. One thing the English language is good for is exaggeration and over-the-topness!

  Normally I'm one to praise the cavernous production on these death metal albums, but this... this is just too far into the cave. Some asshole once said something like "the cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek", but I didn't find any treasure here.

Yeah, most people seem to feel that way about it as well. I dont get it personally. The songwriting and performance is just as good. The difference is the production. This one sounds more like... well... a fucking cave. It's goot more deep to it while the previous sounds a bit air like. A bit misty (sounds pretentious with all these words but bear with me). I personally like both productions and help to enjoy the albums for different reasons.

I have noticed that that is more or less only the case here on MS and not in the outside world, reallife and on forum such as NWN. Everyone I know in reallife who enjoys Antediluvian don't find there to be that much of a difference qualitywise between Logos and all its predecessors.

Rod and I were talking about the album before this one That one seems to get a lot of flak here on MS and not Antediluvian somehow.

Hmm, I don't remember what it sounds like - one of the many albums I need to revisit, although it's not close to the top of my priority list especially if it sounds similar to this.

Funny that I'm not fan of the previous album because the production isn't as hellish as this.

Maybe it helps I grew up with upteenth generation demo cassettes in the Eighties, so almost everything will sound clear after having gone through that

Wasn't this initially a cassette release? Or am I remembering that incorrectly?

As if it being released on cassette explains a sound like this.

Rating: 8 I got both as cds... In any case I doubt the format would be of much difference. Maybe you wanna check out the previous one. As Marcel said it's much less hellish. I personally love both so I dont know what to tell you besides quoting Joe's video.

A extremely limited run which was not for sale. But not of the quality we got back in the day. It was pro-printed and pro-dubbed.

I have a demo from some black metal band from 1995 that I got in a lot from an eBay auction and i'm pretty sure it's not actually music. Just a guy gargling while hitting some pans.

This is pristine compared to that.

Actually, we had those, and especially those. Since I lived in Morocco, those were the only way of getting music. We had no record shops, no gigs, nothing, until the internet became accessible in about 2003/2004. Just illegal tapes copied from stuff coming from Europe or taped on the radio, sold on the pavement for five dirhams. We'd make copies of those copies ourselves because we had no money.
