23:23 - s_t_s hey not that I miss them so but fo you know where band Deathstars's gone ? Seem they vanished...
21:47 - Risto It's their own tongue-in-cheek description. The vocals tip it over to the avantgarde side I think.
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]
Really digging it. Picks up where the previous left off. I haven't noticed any individual tracks quite as epic and crushing as Köld, but it seems very consistent. A little on the long side, though. Ideally, an album shouldn't run longer than 45-50 minutes, IMO.
After first listen, the title track stands out.

Ahh, what a great icy slab of icelandic post-metal.
To be honest, i wasn't entirely sure that I liked this album when I first heard it, plus being the album that introduced me to the band, but it is definitely a grower. The structures of the longer songs make the sound very atmospheric, making you feel as if you were actually walking through the wilderness in Iceland. Its pretty damn powerful, and even if the album is a little too long, there is plenty of variety and moods to keep the listener occupied.
