22:12 - Severian93 I've listened to the book of souls 5 times now, i cant get over how suprisingly good it is. a HUGE step up from The Final Frontier
22:04 - Bad English Iron Maiden - When The River Runs Deep [link] Iron Maiden - If Eternity Should Fail [link]
21:58 - Zaphod ...since his vocal performance was great, especially considering his age, and the show was quite good.
21:56 - Zaphod Saw him once a few years ago, 2011 I think. I wasn't all that impressed, but then I don't enjoy most of his solo work and only really like early Mercyful Fate. If you like his stuff I can't see how it wouldn't be a great show...
21:55 - Severian93 J.N. - yeah and maybe we'll get a new diSEMBOWELMENT or Coroner album too
21:50 - Apothecary Mmkay, fair enough then. Sometimes shit just happens. Anyway, that's a guy who's very high on my "must see" list, so I really do hope I get the chance before he either retires or kicks the bucket
Within the realm of experimentation in the metal genre, Sunn O))) and Ulver need little introduction. Both have consistently pushed boundaries over the past decade, the latter barely even being metal anymore at this point. So really, it was only a matter of time before some sort of joint effort between them spawned in 2014's Terrestrials, which can only be described as a complete and natural synthesis of the parties involved.
Eternal Return is probably one of the most eerie and stunning songs I've heard in a while. At first it sounds like the two bands are doing their best and their darkest Earth impression...which causes an unwilling swell of desolation to befall you. Once the vocals hit, it goes to a brand new level.
I mentioned in my review that it'd be cool if more work was done between the Sunn O))) guys and the Ulver guys, but in a way that's already a reality. Stephen O'Malley actually has his Æthenor project with Garm and Daniel O'Sullivan, anyone who enjoyed this collab should definitely look into it.
