08:49 - Overrwatcher Megadeth absolutely blew everyone away, but hearing older Opeth made me giddy as hell. Disturbed played pretty well. Black Label was really off.
08:34 - Maco I can guess that Opeth was the best band there in that festival.
08:33 - Overrwatcher Crowd was so dead before Opeth though (who played almost entirely old songs and were great, technical errors aside.) When HATEBREED can't get people moving you know something's wrong.
08:30 - Overrwatcher Just got back from Ozzfest, left Black Sabbath before traffic hell began. I don't even like Megadeth but they were fucking amazing.
Something (probably the wine) about France seems to facilitate experimentation more regularly than the various something's about other countries. This album, an industrial-tinged instrumental black metal disc, suitingly for a French band, belongs on the list of French experimentalisms.
"Experimental" here doesn't mean that what these guys do isn't like what others before them have done, it just means that these guys avoid clichés and heard-it-a-thousand-times-before-isms like my old French uncle-in-law avoids toothbrushes and dentists (and American sports... guy's a prick). What they do sounds distinctly like their own music, not like a rehash of old Darkthrone, say, or Emperor, or Mayhem. A good thing for a modern black metal band for the most part.
This albums is better during the industrial black moments. It seems that Ambient sections are used just for the sake of having ambient sections, they are totally boring and soulless. On the other hand, drumming is very good, especially compared to the rest of album
I've know Spektr since they released their second album. I have to say this is a disappointment compared to Near Death Experience and even Mescalyne. I urge every one of you who didn't like this one to forget how average it is, and try Near Death Experience.
