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
"Introspection", the brand new single from Ihsahn has debuted at GuitarWorld.com. Head over to that location to check it out. The song also features guest vocals from Devin Townsend and comes off Ihsahn's upcoming album entitled Eremita, which will be released on June 18th in Europe and June 19th in North America via Candlelight Records. More details about the album were previously reported here.
I haven't been bothering with Ihsahn's solo stuff - it's too progressive for me... but this song sounds pretty nice with Devin in there too. Good things seem to always come when these two work together.
It has Ihsahnic elements as always...
Screams which has a kind of gravel in it and it's not that clean and straight,
clean arpeggios with a little distortion added and smooth melodies along the way
plus a mixture of vocals in the main conclusion.
Overall, it's an average one IMO; neither the best, nor the worst.
