06:13 - Fearmeister Yea, I never even finished that album and I was a massive Agalloch fanboi
05:45 - Apothecary Marrow Of The Spirit is definitely underrated, not sure why people say Agalloch went downhill with that album. I definitely don't think they ended on a strong note with Serpent & The Sphere though
23:59 - Netzach Czerny, I get your point but I'd say the same about "Ashes"... It just gets too droney and gaze-ish in sections. Limbs and Not Unlike the Waves are awesome though... The Mantle has this "whiskey fueled regret"-feel I adore
23:55 - Netzach Btw, AMA on Reddit with A.A Nemtheanga if anyone's interested [link]
I remember from a documentary on musical notes production and history, that the ancient Chinese believed music is the answer of human beings to their surroundings and nature. In this regard mostly their music is based on the five-tone instead of seven-tone scale.
Hence I would say Igorrr has got the best, righteous and exact answer to our surrounding, nature and environment by means of music. What do we have? We have chaos, no clear patterns for events, sometimes disastrous incidents and there are moments filled with pure beauty and bittersweet emotions.
It really doesn't matter what you've listened to in 2012, nothing comes within a light year of how schizophrenic, eclectic, bizarre, unique and brilliant this record is. Experimental breakcore and blasting cybergrind punctuated by modern classical piano and violin, arias, Latin guitar, chickens, fluttering bird wings, vacuum cleaners (no joke) and who knows what else.
Seriously. Unless you've heard this then you've heard nothing like this.
Incredible... How can you take so many elements that people say should never mix, and then turn them into this beauty of an album? Can't believe I've been missing out on this!

I was searching for Avantgarde metal in google, and then I found this piece of shit. Electronic dance music is the most disgusting musical genre ever and grindcore is a joke. And THIS ALBUM manages to mix the two biggest shit genres ever? No way....
The song Toothpaste has been misspelled on my iPod as Tootphaste for a long time, and this entire time I thought it was the way the song was actually spelled. I'm kind of disappointed to learn that it's actually just Toothpaste, as what I have on my iPod is fittingly weird.
