03:40 - !J.O.O.E.! I realise now I get a lot of Boards of Canada vibes from it, which would explain why I like it so much.
03:39 - Apothecary Just scoping this [link] now, and it's pretty damn good. So I'm sure a full playthrough will be quite stimulating
03:38 - !J.O.O.E.! I think it'll suit your mood. It's more of an experiment in cinematic subtlety. Constantly shifting in a really mellow and pleasing way, with the odd edge here and there.
03:36 - Apothecary I just picked up from the urban pharmacist, so that'll probably be a good album to mellow out to tonight :)
03:34 - !J.O.O.E.! I still read it is drone as you mentioned DBR ;) Yeah I really like it. Really diverse mix of elements so it's chilled, creepy and heavy depending on what part of the album you're at.
03:32 - Apothecary Sorry, I meant *drone throne, not doom throne hahaha. I've seen you mention that Echoes Of Yul album though. That good, eh?
03:29 - !J.O.O.E.! I'd probably go for that Echoes of Yul record, although it's fairly light on the doom part.
Finnish progressive/melodic death metal band Crystalic are offering a free download of their sophomore release Persistence. Go to this location and get your free copy.
The band explained as follows: "So this is the way that music business works these days... We have patiently contacted record labels for over a year now and have not managed to get a single deal offered, that was nothing more than a total rip-off on the artist's expence. You really think that this material is not worth a decent release?!
We want to progress and evolve as a band and concentrate on playing live and composing new songs. This is not possible if we have an album's worth of material recorded and ready for release. Just waiting and waiting endlessly for a possible collaborator. We have waited enough and this is the only choice.
The name of the album is an indication of the last 3 years that we have managed to pull through after a near break-up and the difficult process of recording, which took almost 2 years, 3 studios and a vocalist change in the middle of it all. This album is dedicated to all of our fans, who believe in this band and to all people who fight for their dreams and never give up! So without further ado.. Download the album here, leave a comment, spread the word and LET THE METAL FLOW!"
