23:01 - tibosax Sounds good 3rd, but I don't know if I can stand 10 10 minutes songs of tha monotonous style
22:52 - Doge of Venice Exactly. :P As an old fan of theirs, it's definitely more energised and interesting than anything they've done for a decade.
22:51 - 3rdWorld v Clickbait Avenged Sevenfold shite.
22:48 - Doge of Venice Don't mean to be that dude, but the new best kvlt album of the year leaked - [link] Just joking. Few songs in, so far quite interesting. Vocals will still be love/hate
22:42 - Maratha When're there's talk of Korn during Halloween, I remember Korn's Groovy Pirate Ghost Mystery from South Park.
22:36 - 3rdWorld Best atmospheric black I've heard all year. No bullshit samples or nature recordings, just a desolate and bleak guitar playing to get the ambience going. Swiss perfection. [link]
21:48 - 3rdWorld Was just playing the devil's advocate. I love them myself but just the first 3 albums for that matter. Haven't heard the new one in full yet but that one single really sounded well like the old primitive bassy Korn.
01. Intro 02. Xastur Within 03. Dreams Blacker Than Death 04. Screaming At Forgotten Fears 05. Consumed By A Dark Paranoia 06. Marked By Shadows 07. Apparitional Void Of Failure 08. A Gate Through Bloodstained Mirrors 09. Walker Of Dissonant Worlds
When terms like anti-life, nihilism and suicide become part of the atmosphere music evokes or, to say it better, when music is the outcome of anti-life, nihilistic and suicidal emotions then you really know what to expect, something extremely deep and utterly depressive that leaves scars on the listener's soul. Malefic, the one and only sullen soul behind Xasthur, knows well the art of suicide and how to present it through wailing and bleeding ambient-oriented suicidal black metal soundscapes and this is what he did, for one more time, with "To Violate the Oblivious".
I have tried this a couple of times and it's not working that much for me. I can see why others love this album but for me, it actually passes without having much of impression of any kind on me. Enough to say that my most favorite track is the simplistic outro.
