16:32 - Karlabos But it's a second degree influence u.u If Oranssi has psychedelic on it then it makes first degree stoner influence. Plus the riff is memorable, atmosphere is trippy. All the stoner scenario is set =]
16:29 - Apothecary Yeah, now that I think of it, this actually is probably one of the closest things to "stoner black metal" you could find *waits for Marcel to tell me I'm wrong* [link]
16:26 - Apothecary Stoner metal is deeply rooted in psychedelia, but also remember that psychedelic rock is deeply rooted in the blues as well, so the influence is still there
16:24 - Karlabos The last album does. Well, I don't necessarily connect bluesy with stoner, for me stoner metal is somewhat consisting of slow to mid paced memorable riffing, with psychedelic vibe and retro production
16:20 - Apothecary Not to mention, you're really taking that track out of context imo, most Oranssi Pazuzu actually doesn't sound like that
16:19 - Apothecary To me stoner metal usually has a bit of a bluesy sense of groove to the riffs, I don't here that there at all, it's just a minor chord riff repeated over and over
16:17 - Apothecary You could MAYBE argue Glorior Belli (MUATSS and forwards) are, but that's still kinda stretching it. Like I said, the style is very rare
The end of 2013 has been good for Beseech fanatics. After the news that the band was returning, the group shared a new song to showcase their new material. But why stop there?

If you were pleased with the news that Beseech are returning, you will be even happier today because the band has shared a brand new song called "The Ingredients", which is currently streaming on their new website. Alternatively, it is also available in the player below. The gothic metal group had promised something new for today, December 24th, and here it is. The song will be streaming from December 24th to the 31st. Dig in and enjoy it!
Swedish gothic metallers Beseech are preparing a treat for their fans. The band just announced that after nearly a decade of silence, Beseech is returning to the music scene in 2014 and "sounding more Beseech than ever by returning to their roots of melancholy and emotions." For the first time since Souls Highway, all the original composers are back in the band.
Swedish Gothic metallers Beseech, who recently announced their decision to split up after over 15 years in the business, will play their final gig on December 15 at Trägårn in their hometown of Borås, Sweden. More info - in Swedish - can be found here.
The band has also revealed plans to release a DVD in early 2007 containing a remixed live show (with 5.1 Surround Sound) and "tons of material" from various concerts, studio sessions, backstage footage and "other crazy things that happen on tour."
This is an official statement from Beseech (as can be read on the official website):
All of us in the band have come to the sad conclusion to put Beseech to rest for good. The decision has not been easy because this has been a really big part of our personal lives for many years. We have met so many great people through the music and really loved what we have done. We are proud of the work that we have achieved.
However we cannot hide from the fact that we have grown apart from each other as persons and we have different views of how we want Beseech to work as a band. This has taken away all the inspiration to continue and we see this as the only solution in the end. This way we can all part as friends and wish each other good luck with new endeavors that will follow.
Beseech has hooked up with Rock The Nation Bookings/Management (a booking agency) wich handles such bands as Kataklysm and Graveworm.
As the group commented:"We hope and think this cooperation will take Beseech one step further when we talking about touring and to reach every possible country!"
In other News, Beseech are seeking a new record label to release a new demo following their split with Napalm Records. For a record contract, interested labels can contact the band at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The band posted the following message concerning the upcoming album:
"The mixing of "Sunless Days" will begin on the 1st of May.
New songs on the album will as usual cross some new boundries, in some songs you will hear influences from bands such as Deftones, Tool and A perfect Circle! The album will also contain a re-make of the old Beseech song "Manmade Dreams" (from our 2nd album "Black Emotions") and a Danzig cover. The title of the Danzig cover will be a surprise but we can promise that it´s a killer version. Meanwhile there is a poll on the webpage (mainpage) on which Danzig song you think it is or which one you would like it to be."
"SUNLESS DAYS" will be the name of the 5th Beseech album!
The album will be finished during March/April and released through Napalm Records.
26 March will BESEECH play a special gig at Sjunde Himlen in their hometown Borås (Sweden). Except that other bands will play this night as Iodine Jupiter and Depressive art (former Beseech member Klas new band) will BESEECH play some new songs from the coming album "SUNLESS DAYS" for the first time!
