17:38 - drf1223 The problem with live Opeth now is that they always play an acoustic set now of 3-4 songs, what I'm not particularly fond of. This time could be spent to play half of Still Life instead, in my opinion.
17:30 - Megaherz Am I the only Chinese on? :o wow I feel so special :D
16:53 - EMols86 @Jaeryd17 First time you saw them live? Last time I saw them they didn't play any heavy songs, at least not songs with growls. Which songs did they play?
If there was ever a more polarising album I've yet to hear it. There's no "it's not bad" or "it's pretty good," only abject disdain and unparalleled adoration. I may be overstating it somewhat but the case with Blut Aus Nord's most experimental release to date is that it flies so flagrantly in the face of convention you either get it or you don't. Perhaps the biggest reason for this is because there really is no precedent with MoRT. Is it black metal? Is it industrial? It may be both. Then again it may be neither. But then that's part of its ambivalent beauty.
