05:43 - deadone Fearmeister: So if those riffs were overpolished or put right back in the mix under the vox and drums or if they were more dense and undistinguishable, would the enjoyment still be the same?
05:40 - Guib @Fear: Yeah ok that's what I thought :P
05:40 - Fearmeister Oh, that was more about bitching about Alex's tastes :P and yea deadone, my love for Black Metal is due to the rambunctious riffs. Not the production, so I wouldn't give a shit
05:39 - Guib Yeah I get it don't worry, just found the analogy funny
05:39 - deadone Guib changed it to Metallica. Point was to show how much production determine's character and impact.
05:39 - Guib @Fear: Yeah something about ''flocking 'round cave man's production albums'' :P
05:38 - deadone So Fearmeister, would Venom's Black Metal have the same vibe and impact if the production was the same as on Metallica's Black album?
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.
