There were so many rumours I didn't pay attention to any of them in the end. When the church burnings started I just thought it was retarded. The few people involved in the emotional dramas ended up killing each other or themselves, and there is one person left who now lives in France with his wife and kids. The music still stands. I appreciated the reactionary movement against the church and I appreciated the music, but I had no understanding for the violence which had more to do with individual egos than the movement itself.Hazard a guess at what my username is named after, rather than just using the Norwegian word for hell. The history fascinated me for quite a while a few years ago or so. What was it like to be there as it was all going on, where you quite informed about it, or just heard what the media had to say? Because not only what Euronymous did there was that stint Varg had with the church arson's and everything else interlinked.
The first time I heard it I couldn't help bursting out in laughter . I have since listened to the album properly and appreciate the complexity and technical skill involved. It's not something I can listen to any time, I agree. Some people called it "The Thinking Man's Metal". They didn't subscribe to the high adrenaline/testosterone performances, but instead put emphasis on concepts and musicianship.That tech metal sounds pretty good, not really my thing but it's catchy with decent vocals
Yes, there are similarities there.The crust punk reminded me of Darkthrones newer stuff(ish) not their latest on double checking but certainly a change in direction
I tend to agree with you. It's just harder to find the gold in certain genres.I haven't really been in the BM scene lately as I'v been listening to, well, everything that's good, some subjective facet of art that I appreciate which is defined in ways still unknown to me; there is gold in (nearly?*) every genre.
Yes, I have listened to some of their stuff. I don't mind the second track, but it sounds like a lot of things I have heard before. It fails to hold my attention. I grew up listening to Pink Floyd, so it has been difficult to find bands that surpass their progressive ingenuity as I tend to use them as comparison. It's probably not fair to Ulver, who seem innovative, technically skilled and creative enough -- but I have trouble holding my attention to it. Perhaps I need to listen harder.Do you know Ulver?
They've gone through massive genre changes and are one of my favorite bands.
I don't mind that. It requires a certain mood though, which I often find very difficult to tap into. I find myself wishing the vocals weren't there for some reason. Perhaps it's the pervasive fragility that gets to me. The second half of the track is different; they are doing something interesting there. Prog bands like Mogwai and Mono come to mind.As for what I'm listening to atm.
No, I haven't. I stumbled across Donkey Cong listening to soundtrack piano music, but Aquatic Ambiance was surprisingly good for the mood.
This was a surprisingly nice ost. I enjoy watching Satoshi Kon's works, he (his team) usually provided great visuals and narrative/topic. Paprika is an exception when it comes to music.I love this movie's soundtracks (esp a drop filled with memories)
agreed. Satoshi kon and mamoru oshii(dir. of angel's egg and ghost in the shell) are masters of animated film makingI enjoy watching Satoshi Kon's works, he (his team) usually provided great visuals and narrative/topic. Paprika is an exception when it comes to music.
I haven't yet. Mamoru Oshii is one of my favourites but after seeing some mishaps (Patlabor was a failure) I don't delve into his works blindly.(Btw, angel's egg has one of the most beautiful OSTs I've ever come across...check it out if you haven't already.)
