21:15 - Lit. Devin Townsend's Kingdom was pretty damn good compared to the original.
21:05 - ScreamingSteelUS Generally, re-recordings aren't a great idea, but some bands do it properly. Sabaton's re-recording of "7734" for the new album, for example, was not only justified but overwhelmingly successful.
20:55 - Hex_Omega And CoF re-recordings on Bitter Suites To Succubi are an absolute abomination.
20:51 - Hex_Omega On Stormblast2005 there are only two songs which sounds better than on original Stormblast. Når Sjelen Hentes Til Helvete and Dodsferd. They could re-record them and put on EP like on Godless Savage Garden.
20:48 - Maco To be honest. The idea of re-recording a classic is not really amazing either. Especially if it is an album like S.U.I.Z.I.D.
20:47 - Gothmog_Motsham Let's see where this one will be going. The album's title and cover got me excited for some reason.
I have to ask, because well, they both are female doom duo's.
Not in the slightest. MoT are uptempo and caustic, Undersmile are slower and heavier (the guitar tone itself must weigh as much as the moon). Vocally it's primarily overlapping twin-female cleans, but of the very weird, off-kilter, psychedelic chanting type, much like Bloody Panda.
Argh, still can't get over how much I should love this, how much I want to love this, how much I actually love this when I put it on, and how I'm pummeled to the ground exhausted by the time I'm at track 4. Way too long for its own good, which is a pity. I love it but I find myself spontaneously listening to it very rarely since it's such an investment, both of my time and my energy.
