10:22 - LuciferOfGayness And Satanism didnt make you guys dumb, that was capitalism ;D
10:16 - LuciferOfGayness Thats a good question, I imagine there are some satanists that worship Britney Spears. Picking a ideology wont give you a taste in music.
06:05 - no one wonder if the majority of all different kind of satanists are metalheads
04:02 - Apothecary @Jaeryd, you're referring to LaVeyan Satanism, which is essentially Nietzsche/Ayn Rand type philosophy plus some Crowley - influenced ritual magick. Most theistic Satanists do not consider it as "real" Satanism
03:30 - no one because calling yourself a satanist sounds more kvlt
03:23 - Kuroboshi If you're not into the whole anti-christianity thing, it seems kind of stupid to call it satanism. Why not just say liberal atheism?
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.
