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]
New music from Electric Wizard? Alright, then! The stoner/doom metallers are offering you another new song and you can stream "SadioWitch" right now. It's off Time To Die, which is also the band's first new album in four years. This is the second track the band reveals from the forthcoming record. Not bad. What do you think?
Spinefarm Records releases Time To Die on September 29th.
The song will be accompanied by a video, currently being edited. Little is known about the clip, although it is believed to feature both "nudity" and "explosions."
Jus Oborn says: "Sadiowitch is about death by lust and indulgence. As life becomes disillusioning it is reassuring to turn to 'lifes luxuries'...sex and drugs. But, of course, over indulgence leads to emaciation, weakness and death. The song is short and sweet just like this particular form of death. There are many choices but only one outcome. Choose wisely..."
A limited edition 7" version of "SadioWitch" is also being planned, with a previously unreleased piece of music on the B-side.
Seems very reminiscent of Black Masses, especially in the vocal department. Not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing, in this case. I preferred I Am Nothing to this. Still have high hopes for this release.
I've pre-ordered the CD already, so I'm feeling great about this album. Song-wise, it's starting to sound more like Black Masses which I'm still not in love with, but I've got high hopes. The production is great on these songs, being super heavy which already sounds better than Black Masses did. I think this shall kick ass and that we will probably be in for a doom-filled treat.

Really liked that evil intro buildup... would of liked to hear a long tortured scream too... vox sound kind of subdued... heavy though... 7/10.
