22:12 - 3rdWorld @Erik Indeed, I am not getting it, PM me.
22:12 - moonflash Interstellar was nice, but there are loads of scientific inaccuracies in it. The concept of wormholes is explored quite effectively though and I read somewhere that the blackhole imagery was an actual scientific simulation
22:09 - Erik M. You're missing my point, due to possible spoilers, I think. I'm aguing it's a paradox... if you still don't know what I mean I'll PM you.
22:07 - 3rdWorld Haha, thats correct as much as I've read wormholes dont just appear somewhere in the space but I believe it can created or build from some kind of immense force. And in the movie's case Beings of higher order dimensions.
22:05 - Erik M. I'm not talking about wormholes being possible or not, I know it's theoretically possible. I'm talking about WHO put the wormhole there and why it might be a plot hole (considering you know who put it there).
22:03 - 3rdWorld Wormholes are theoretically very probable stuff. Folding a piece of paper in which a 1dimensional being has to pass through the entire paper to go to an end but we can fold it and create shortcuts. Apply the same to 3d space
22:01 - Erik M. Holy shit, am I glad Nolan did this movie and NOT Spielberg. Sure, he's good and has made a few great movies, but he doesn't even come close to Nolan as a director, despite his influence. I'd almost call Nolan the modern Kubrick.
Additional info "Faustian Echoes" is a single, two-part song based on Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's epic masterpiece Faust. Reaching over twenty minutes, "Faustian Echoes" is the longest song Agalloch have ever written.
Here's a little game I like to play: guess what genre the next Agalloch EP will be? From the blasting lo-fi of From Which This Oak to the strange semi-electronic remixes on The Grey to the acoustic laden, Wicker Man-themed The White, Agalloch has managed a wide spectrum on their music palette, which makes this guessing game downright impossible. One thing's for sure, the EPs are never similar in genre to the preceding album, right?
Awesome song. It was great live, although I think they should have kept the middle and end commentaries for the performance. Too bad they probably won't be able to play this one live again for a while.
BTW, those interested in buying a physical copy of this can now. The band has it on their official ebay for $12 + shipping. I don't think the CD version is a limited release, unlike the vinyl, so their should be re-pressings of the CD version.
Agalloch have never failed to deliver captivating music, and this EP continues that tradition of excellence. If you had always been curious to hear what Agalloch would sound like if they played a purely black metal song, here you go. This is 20 minutes of dark, aggressive black metal. Of course, the flourishes and crescendos that Agalloch fans know and love are still very much present, as is Haughm's impeccable sense of melody and Anderson's great lead guitar playing, with Walton remaining a crucial, but more subtle element on bass. Aesop's dynamic drumming is fast becoming a staple of Agalloch's sound, and again the man works wonders here. Overall, another fantastic EP from this fantastic band.
