00:00 - Spawdophonik That's so true Apothecary, I love that beat in the beginning of that music video. Possibly Kendrick's best. Wish it was a full song ! But the lyrics kinda ruin it
23:02 - yvesson Hej, okej, just checked my collection and there are three 2001 albums, but most of them dissapointment which probably made me stop buying albums.
21:56 - yvesson Hej, can't believe it, you're talking about rap in here ? I'm still stuck with my old metal CDs, the most recent must be from 1999 or something. :p
21:38 - Apothecary Like this. The beginning is fantastic, but then he just busts into the TELL ME WHO THE BITCH NIGGA HATING ON MEEEE shit afterwards and it just ruins it. Not for me [link]
21:36 - Apothecary I'm not too big a fan of Kendrick either. He is not a BAD rapper, but I feel as though when he tries to come along with the social commentary, it just kind of falls flat by him turning around and then going gangsta gangsta
21:19 - Nimlot I still don't get the hype around Kendrick, but I can't pretend any type of expertise to judge.
Right from the get-go Wijlen Wij plunge their listener into the murky depths.
"Boreas" opens powerfully with subhuman vocals and organ cloaked power chords that sound is if recorded by an 8 track in some massive subterranean cave. Rather than the often slick and powerful production like a lot of their Solitude label mates sport, they went for a more primitive sound.
The sophomore release from this potent Belgian trio is a stimulating journey through four heaping slabs of funeral doom. However, this certainly isn't evil and soul-crushing in the traditional understanding of the style. With Wijlen Wij, clean vocals, suprisingly good melodies and grooves, and even a few audio samples combine to form some of the most upbeat and overall interesting funeral doom I've heard in quite awhile. Opener "Boreas" is nothing short of amazing.
That song was pretty awful to my ears. The mix of cleans and low FD vocals didn't really mesh well. The organ was very overbearing too. Also, maybe it's just the youtube quality, but the production wasn't that great either, sounded like the whole thing was pushed a step back, and it was pretty thin.
That being said I'm probably not gonna listen to this.
…boreas gave me a pretty strong Skepticism vibe, but that may have been mainly due to the organ. Solid release, will need a few more listens though. Fairly long album, so may take some time to go through it proper several more times.
