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
The time has come to listen to the new Wintersun album. The long awaited and extremely over-due Time I is finally here. You can stream the album exclusively and in its entirety at the band's official website. Time I is Wintersun's second album and it will see its first release on October 19th, in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Finland and Norway under Nuclear Blast.
Apparently, the streaming server is having some problems and it might not stream right away. The trick is to wait a bit until it loads properly.
When you get past the horrible stream engine..the album is actually fantastic. 9.5/10. No album is worth waiting 8 years for...but this comes close!
Dammit. I hate to do this, but: I agree with you!!! I've listened through it twice, and I think it is wonderful. I like it much more than their more typical self-titled album. I guess I hate to admit it because, like many bands that I do enjoy; these guys are over-deified (*cough* Slayer *cough* Tool *cough*...). But it truly is a great album. I'm putting it on for the 3rd time now!
