08:10 - AngelofDeth you're right, a little weird to get used to but it works pretty dang well in that song. It needs to be stylized to metal rather than just sticking a weird 80s sax break down in the middle of a song
08:04 - AngelofDeth didnt know other bands were doing it too. Very strange. Ill check that out though
06:56 - hadriel Listen to Ihsahn's On the Shores and all of the doubts anyone would ever have about the sax being in metal will be squelched
05:28 - Unhealer It's because it's just awesome <3 It really fits metal.
05:13 - Zaphod Turisas, Whispered and Behemoth are just the ones that don't pull it off, there are plenty that do.
As much as I find Igorrr an interesting band, I do bear a grudge that it is featured on this site....
Not so much in itself but the fact that other bands are not, which are more relevant.
Sure Igorrr has some occasional splashes of extreme metal in it, but it's not all that prominent part of the sound or the band.
bah, i'm just annoyed that Mogwai aren't featured.
The metallic heaviness they can pull off (look up: We're no here) and the fact that they're an really influential band could have granted them a spot here.
Didn't know where to post this so it ended up here.
Other than that this album is interesting to say the least, I have to listen to it in moderation in order not to get a headache because of all the twists and turns.... interpret that however you want.
