05:20 - Fearmeister lol, Midnight Odyssey is on the label's bandcamp now. I don't think that counts as a 'leak' :P
05:19 - Timmeh I love the shit out of Tool, I connect with their drug influence. Also they are masters of rhythm, love their polyrhythms.
05:19 - Joe Zombie When I think of experimental I think of avant-garde.
05:16 - Joe Zombie I used to be a big Tool fan. Listened to them a lot back in the day. And "weird" not to be confused with experimental. Weird as in these overdrawn compositions with so much fluff and filler that its wankery.
05:14 - Timmeh Yeah on a related note, I've always disliked how the genre term 'Experimental' gets thrown around. It suggests the band members have no idea what the fuck they're doing.
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.
