06:13 - Fearmeister Yea, I never even finished that album and I was a massive Agalloch fanboi
05:45 - Apothecary Marrow Of The Spirit is definitely underrated, not sure why people say Agalloch went downhill with that album. I definitely don't think they ended on a strong note with Serpent & The Sphere though
23:59 - Netzach Czerny, I get your point but I'd say the same about "Ashes"... It just gets too droney and gaze-ish in sections. Limbs and Not Unlike the Waves are awesome though... The Mantle has this "whiskey fueled regret"-feel I adore
23:55 - Netzach Btw, AMA on Reddit with A.A Nemtheanga if anyone's interested [link]
With their new album The Tower set for release this month, avantgarde metallers Vulture Industries have recently unveiled another new song off the offering, "Lost Among Liars". This album is their Season Of Mist debut. You can watch the animated video made for the song by renowned artist Costin Chioreanu, who also designed the album cover art.
The video is a "visual critique of today's society which takes us on a journey through a surreal cityscape populated by people and machines, each with their own different duties and functions. From the vagrant loser to the dutiful cog in the wheel of industry, to the facade of family life to the mask salesman, they are all here. Each of them tells a story of oppression, restitution, control and freedom."
The Tower is due out on the 27th of September in Europe and the 1st October in North America. Check out the album title track over here as well.
In other news, Vulture Industries just commenced a new live theater project with the Happy Gorilla Dance Company. The project, titled "Turning Golem", is a unique take on theatrical performance combined with music from The Tower. "Turning Golem" is being staged on three separate dates: August 17th at the Dark Bombastic Evening in Transylvania, Romania, October 25th at the Garage in Bergen, Norway and October 26th at Phantoms Of Pilsen Festival in the Czech Republic. The show features five tracks from The Tower.
