02:30 - Fearmeister mz likes it cause it sounds like portal which makes them unique
02:27 - Apothecary Really in depth shit, probably the best elaboration upon that scene I've yet read. Love it or hate it, fanboy over it or decry it all as DsO worship, one can't deny some powerful shit is going on there
02:26 - !J.O.O.E.! mz, I still don't get your interest in that band. They're so bleh.
02:25 - Apothecary @No one, just refresh the page and you should see it. Just for convenience sakes, I'll post it again [link]
02:19 - Draven Edge Damn, apparently Ozzy was in my building last week at an AA meeting, they had to cancel their gig in Van because of his health so I actually believe my sources, too bad I missed him.
02:18 - no one why does the Icelandic bm article link not work, what was it on?
01. Alpha Eri 02. M20 03. Gas und Staub zwischen den Sternen 04. Sternenstaub 05. Verteilung der Nebel im Raum 06. NGC 6611 07. NGC 3242 (Ghost Of Jupiter)
Close your eyes, lean back; prepare yourself for liftoff. Rise out from your seat, through your ceiling, your roof, and into the sky above as Alrakis embraces you, freeing mind and body from this terrestrial realm. Soon, as you rise through the heavens, away from the reaches of the Earth, you begin a cosmic black metal journey not unlike that of Sun Of The Blind or Chaos Moon.
At this time you have left everything you have ever known behind and in its place, the Cosmos. Floating through this massive void your outstretched hand can almost feel the warm touch of a passing planet, the rough skin of a soaring meteor. By now you have become fully acclimated with your new surroundings; feeling ever more alive in this lifeless landscape until you begin a rapid descent.
Grasped by the gravity of a nearby, unknown star, you rapidly free fall towards its surface at terminal velocity. Your hair starts to singe, reaching flames lick out towards your body; you know it is only a matter of time before you will inevitably disintegrate in this fiery inferno. And then you are lifted back up, resuming your cosmic journey.
You repeat this near-death dance several times, always thinking it will be the last. Exhausted, you fall limp, resigning yourself to the uncontrollable throes of space until you realize it is over. No more do the tumultuous forces of the universe haunt you, instead leaving you alone to become one with the outstretched stars and planets, each passing quasar and grain of stardust, no longer fearful of atmospheric heat or the suction of a black hole. You are finally at peace, on your way to Alpha Eri.
Pretty cool album. Darkspace are still rulers of space but I'm enjoying this quite a bit.
I see both as parallels to be honest. Can't compare them at all. Both are wonderful bands but they take a completely different approach for their space concept.
Darkspace just shows an empty and sometimes terrifying portrait of space while Alrakis displays a more beautiful, delicate and calm melancholy approach to it.
And Oranssi Pazuzu?...They are just tripping balls dude.
