You prefer black metal a la Njiqahdda?

I'm sorry, I don't know who those people are or what they do, but from the looks of their band profile on MS, it's most certainly something I dislike. I meant by that comment I usually don't like my stuff to be too raw, except for a few bands, who just sound better when there's a little extra haze/dirt. Darkspace being one of those few exceptions. I suppose Njikaka release inaudible albums?

Yep. You can barely hear anything. =]
They're still interesting sometimes nonetheless.
it's ambient black metal as well, you might wanna give it a check.

Rating: 9 Second listen, at full blast on my brand new mega-speakers. Walls, desk and cat are shaking in terror. I can't hear anything but the world falling apart. Neighbours are going to call the police. Awesome.

Rating: 8 Massive album, holy shit. Very impressive stuff.

For now this gets an 8 from me but I'm guessing it might very well end up a 9 after more listens.

Rating: 9 One of the best releases in this bad year imo.

I really loved all parts. Their making great atmosphere. I liked the riffing style that they improved form previous releases. Electro elements stack very well too. My only concern is tha lack in variety on how they express the idea. It was listening to the same (superb) thing in the whole disc. They repeat to make atmosphere, this is ambient, I don't mean that ofc.

Rating: 8 First listen still in process. All I can say is that the crunchy trademark riffs followed by cosmic keyboards on Dark 4.19 is among the best shit I heard this year !

If you haven't heard their previous one I'd say you should give it a try. A tad more interesting to me, and one of my favorite records of all time. This however, is still phenomenal and definitely a worthy follow up.

Rating: 9 Listened to it just partially yesterday and as expected, it was a little underwhelming. I was actually shocked by the techno-like feeling of first track. Maybe I was listening to a wrong album right??

There would be no surprise, if you gave their latest EP a proper listen
!J.O.O.E.! - 10.09.2014 at 23:25  
Rating: 9 A few techno-ish beats, really not that many even. I'd be amazed if anyone was that swayed because of them. I found it gave it an industrial feel more than a techno one.

The first track is one of the best Darkspace songs ever recorded. You won't like the second track though I suspect.

Maybe you should check out the last Paysage d'Hiver record. You might find it more to your tastes.

Yeah, I'm gradually checking out their whole discography, so don't worry, as I'll definitely check out the previous album.

^ Same. I'm happy I didn't get disappointed this time like with Watain or Dark Fortress lately. It's a bit less hypnotizing then their previous work and I would have preferred 10 minutes songs but still solid nonetheless.

Rating: 8 Sounds like Control Human Delete and Neptune towers playing at the same time. I liked it better than the 3rd one.

Because this album sounded rather industrial at parts, so see the above description.

Rating: 10 I think Dark 4.19 is my new favorite Darkspace track! Epic
Alex Fenger - 15.09.2014 at 03:45  
Rating: 10 This is so close to topping Tekel-Li as my aoty. It might steal the "10" rating from it, as listening back and forth between the two I'm much more impressed by this one. Also it's basically the same quality as III to me.....fuck it giving it a 10. One of my new favorite albums ever, and it basically staples Darkspace in my top 10 bands of all time.

Rating: 8 I always listen to music with the highest volume without any trouble like that but I think Darkspace is so brutal for this high volume
Mr. Doctor - 18.09.2014 at 13:29  
  You'll thank yourself in a couple of decades if you lower the volume.

Really? Does listening to music on high volume damages the ears ?
Except for when I want to sleep, I listen to music on highest volume.

I honestly have a hard time believing you are not fucking with me right now.
Our bodies age by the second... None of our senses and overall fitness get better with time, they only get worse. Most of the time I'm careless at concerts and don't have earplugs and when the concert is over I get the ringing sound the entire night and sometimes the following day. That shit can get permanent for example.

Ever heard of tinnitus or... you know... flat out hearing loss?

Nah I was serious. I once had sever problem with my ears. Not only I stopped listening to music for 7 months, but also I couldn't even talk with phone or watch TV with sound. After seeing a couple of specialists, it turned out that the nerves system of my teeth interacts with my ears, causing pain and super sensitivity to sound. I talked with the doctor that came up with the correct reason about my habit of listening to extreme music ( was mostly into death metal back then) and he said that listening to music on phones or MP3 players with maximum power should not cause damage. I had my ears tested and the diaphragm and ear drums were functioning great. In fact, I had better hearing abilities than most people.
Btw, I should have added that I never listen to music on speakers and has never been to any metal concert (or almost any other type of concerts for that matter). Maybe the maximum volume on phone ear-buds is not that much?
Mr. Doctor - 18.09.2014 at 16:21  
  Ok I just realised we are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay offtopic. If I come up with something to say to you (I dont atm) then I will say it on the pub.


Sorry folks! Darkspace is awesome... uhmmm... Yeah. This is probably one of their best albums for sure. III might still win but just by a hair at most.

Pretty much what I was thinking as well. It's kind of baffling to see how mz and Mary weren't aware of totally common knowledge such as this. Well, no need to explain seeing as Rodrigo already has done that... except that listening music via ear buds is WAY more damaging to your ears than via speakers, if you both have them at high volume. That "specialist" lied to you, mz.

Frak, I don't know anymore, I think I'm starting to prefer this one to III to be honest. That second track just... does it for me.

Too much to list right here, I'd suggest just looking through my reviews and checking out anything I gave an 8 or higher. N/A albums too because that's usually my way of saying an album is too good to be scored against any standards
