Drone On: Sonic Shamans And The Philosophy Of O)))

Most of us have heard of it, even if it may be restricted to a relatively small audience. Iconic images of guys shrouded in ominous black cloaks, producing mammoth walls of feedback from their 100+ amps onstage, have cemented the aesthetic of the style. But what is drone exactly, and what is the purpose of its musical vision? What keeps its small but loyal fan base so intrigued and eerily entranced by it? Cliffhangers are annoying, so let's get down to business and shed some light on this musical twilight zone.

Hedvig Mollestad Trio - Sinilind, Tallinn, Estonia, 25.10.2014

The less you know, the better it is. This seems to be a recurring pattern with smaller gigs. It holds true that the lower your expectations are for a class act, the more room you have for a pleasant surprise. Even though I didn't go into this instrumental jazz-influenced rock night blindfolded, so to say, I wasn't nearly prepared for a concert this excellent.

Amorphis - Rock Café, Tallinn, Estonia, 09.10.2014

Amorphis seem to swing by Estonia regularly enough in recent times that I'm slowly starting to lose count of how many times I've seen them play. With a little jog down memory lane, I've come to the conclusion that this concert was the 5th for me, and my 4th in Estonia. However, since Amorphis have put on a good show every time so far, I saw no real reason to skip. If nothing else, it would've made for a fine evening out, despite the lecture at 8 the following morning.
