19:55 - Moose Many thanks to whoever introduced me to Astronoid via the shoutbox the other day. Their new album, Air, is magnificent. I can even understand why some refer to their genre as "Dream Thrash".
19:12 - Opethian @Apothecary, I got to meet him when I saw them play at Denver this past January. Dude is down to earth and was a privilege to get to meet him and Dallas \M/
18:18 - Apothecary Yeah, you wouldn't want to get in a fight with him though. Just check out this vid lol, apparently at this show some dumbass was throwing beer on his pedals [link]
18:01 - Marcel Hubregtse Karl is a small,. albeit quite fattish mf. He is smaller than I am. And I am only 5'11"
17:56 - 3rdWorld He definitely isn't massive as he once was.
17:26 - Apothecary I think I am slightly taller, I'm about 6 feet. But he is definitely a bigger guy than I am, overall

Neige strikes again. Yes, the bloke from Alcest who apparently believes it's his sworn duty to make sure as many bands possible are working together towards achieving his vision (a perfect shoegaze/post-rock black metal album perchance?), is here too, but only handling the vocal duties and not contributing to the songwriting itself. If you expected Écailles De Lune number 2, you might be slightly disappointed.
The relaxing sections, Niege's vocals and the songwriting of this release is in my opinion what makes it worthwhile. It is such a shame that the album is over so quickly which left me in a bittersweet state, yearning for more.
