Any fans of the mind-blowing industrial/sludge rock band Swans?

I became interested in them for the fact that they are often credited as being a big influence to the avantgarde and industrial metal bands like Neurosis and Godflesh. I just got their album "The Great Annihilator" in the mail today and it totally blew me away. The music is just so raw, heavy, and complex, along with the eerie chanting of Michael Gira and Jarboe to make it very unsettling stuff. The lyrics are some of the most misanthropic I have ever heard, but are also very deep and thoughtful.

If you haven't heard anything by them and are into alot of more experimental shit, I greatly suggest you look into them.

Listened to some of their stuff. Not got properly into it, but I didn't dislike. I'd probably have to give The Seer a few more listens.

Here are some of my favorite tracks. If they don't impress you, I don't know what will!

Swans are one of my favorite bands. My favorite album by them would either be Soundtrack for the Blind or Filth. I have a physical copy of Swans are Dead as well.
