08:29 - Unhealer First use of sax in metal I can think of is on Pan.Thy.Monium albums. It had to be Swano.
08:10 - AngelofDeth you're right, a little weird to get used to but it works pretty dang well in that song. It needs to be stylized to metal rather than just sticking a weird 80s sax break down in the middle of a song
08:04 - AngelofDeth didnt know other bands were doing it too. Very strange. Ill check that out though
06:56 - hadriel Listen to Ihsahn's On the Shores and all of the doubts anyone would ever have about the sax being in metal will be squelched
05:28 - Unhealer It's because it's just awesome <3 It really fits metal.
05:13 - Zaphod Turisas, Whispered and Behemoth are just the ones that don't pull it off, there are plenty that do.
This is exactly how I like GTT. Some of the his slowest and more ritualistic compositions with rare use of drum work create what that is probably his best effort in my opinion. The only elements of GTT which I miss on this EP are those weird spoken words and samples but these are minor problems, considering that this EP is mostly instrumental. I must listen to the rest of his EPs which I have not checked yet but this EP is better than all of his (great) full length albums.
