Thanks for clearing it out.


Hopefully you'll enjoy it. It's such a masterpiece of pitch black tranquility. Sometimes it's almost too calm if you know what I mean... Like you feel something behind you all the time, just watching.
Also, that album has in my humble opinion the best bass any BM album could ever have.

I'll start listening VERY SOON.

There is a contender.
Nagelfar's Srontgorrth.

Nah, not really... That album (a wonderful album btw) doesn't focus on bass nearly ass much as LoC considering that Nagelfar's main feature are their great synths and riff melody. The bass sound is dirtier and less warm. The bass in LoC on the other hand gets full focus even thought sometimes it's in the very background yet it always gets you with an extremely warm sound that just flows through your veins with it's highly hypnotic touch. LoC wouldn't be as much as the masterpiece that it is if it weren't for such bassy, pulsing and warm sound.

Or once again, Lucas said it best:

Quote:
No matter how eerie the riff, no matter how touching the acoustic guitar, no matter how hollow and desperate the vocals, no matter how estranging the samples or how subtly saddening the keyboard, the bass wins. Its thrusting power yet gentle touch, its pushing force yet warm and smooth charm. The bass is brilliant. He'll make your warm blood slowly creep through your veins and have you shiver of such strange, yet blissful feelings.

You may be right, but I've never heard anything like that tremolo-picked bass line in "Kapitel Eins", the one that precedes the first fast riff (Which also owns).

Well, I personally don't find it that unique, great bass though. You have to take notice that it's not necessarily about how unique the sound is but how much it enhances the music which is something that LoC was clearly among the very best at working on since it's the foundation of the album's overall unique sound, this last part can't be said about Nagelfar which foundations were very different.

Just listening to LoC and I have to say I agree about the bass.

I wouldn't recommend them to someone wanting anything melodic ;]


I think Doctor was meaning it might fit my post/sludge/atmo phase I am in right now...would it?

Well Gin has moments of post-rock/metal in it but it's still more black metal than post. Could be worth a shot though.

As if my review wasn't enough, you need an external list to convince you? For shame.
