02:30 - Maco Blaze is a great singer, and he proves it in Silicon Messiah.
02:26 - Fearmeister Exactly, Bailey wasn't that bad of a frontman. Kinda the same thing with Tim Owens and Judas Priest
02:24 - Ruchesko Oh yeah, Harris was a complete husk creatively at the time. I would've preferred Matos though.
02:12 - deadone I like Bayley in Maiden. In my opinion he was let down by song writing (especially all the repetition) and a very sterile sound with gutless rythm guitars and a real mechanical feel to it all.
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.
