10:40 - Overrwatcher You're entering a BLACK METAL concert. It's not going to be a joy ride. She should have just left if she was unhappy about the blood. I'm PC as fuck but the entire world isn't a safe space.
10:36 - Overrwatcher About that article: The actual theatrics sounded cool, the face-in-crotch is what the fuck and completely uncalled for. Blood is metal as fuck. Sexual assault not so much.
09:34 - ScreamingSteelUS I thought of that, too. The answer is no, because getting offended is stupid, but you're welcome to scoff at the ignorance with me.
09:05 - M C Vice Should I be offended that the woman who wrote that article associates the eagle emblem most Germanic states have used since the Roman Empire with nazis?
I'm no doom connoisseur, but this seems rather atypical for the genre. I only say that because I usually find most doom uneventful. Then again I don't have adequate knowledge of the genre to back that up. While calling it groovy might be pushing it, it certainly has head-bob worthy riffs and drum beats, laced with tasty melody for a cherry on top.
After two back-to-back listens, I can firmly state that this is anything unlike III. This is more doomy in its own right and has a totally different vibe to it than the last one which was very highly spacey and almost blackish. Though I hear that brilliant motif from the last record 17.50 mins into this. In the end I won't rate it as highly as the last one. But it still is one of the great doom albums of this year. And distinctively Monolithe-y in its own right. So, darn good I say.
One thing to love in this album are the amazing choruses. Reminds of that scene from the 2001: A Space Odyssey movie where the chaotic chorus starts to pick up when anything goes near that black monolith.
