I like Ressentiment a lot. It sounds like really claustrophobic black metal, music for the crypt rather than the wilderness under a funeral moon

The only problem I have with Ship of Theseus is that when I go back to his older bm stuff it sounds so monotonous and grey to me, I always struggled with them tbh. Kind of like I always felt that I SHOULD enjoy BaN, who bore me silly.

I get this actually, and Ship is def my favorite thing he's done, but I still gotta give it up for Discontinuities which has two of my favorite metal songs ever (Romanticism, Supreme Fictions) and is ultimately is the album that helped me start to get over my bias against metal that wasn't stoner or space

I listened to the first half of Cosmophony last night, I appreciate what the guy does and I'd never call it bad but somehow everything he comes up with fails to make me feel anything. I've been trying for years but nothing ever clicks with me.

Regarding JG I'm not saying his older stuff doesn't have their moments but the last time I tried to listen to Vast Chains it felt more like a chore than anything. Maybe I just wasn't in the right mood.

ultros ultros-ghali, Monday, 11 January 2016 15:08 (one year ago) Permalink

Fair enough.

Vast Chains is amazing, especially that closing track, but it's the greyest and most forbidding of his microtonal records and should only be listened to when in the mood, yes

I suppose I haven't called Ship of Theseus my favourite metal album of all time in this thread yet, but that it is.

sounding like a silly Iain Banks on a track (imago), Monday, 11 January 2016 15:22 (one year ago) Permalink

Vast Chains is the one I've enjoyed the most, actually. I don't know that he's done anything that would make even my top 50 of all time but Vast Chains is so fucking audacious.

stupid children forever (GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ), Monday, 11 January 2016 19:32 (one year ago) Permalink

is there such thing as an instrumental (metal) Jute Gyte album? Vast Chains sound promising, but his vocal style is my least favorite vocal style & doesn't leave much room for enjoyment even when I can appreciate the backing tracks.

small doug yule carnival club (unregistered), Thursday, 18 February 2016 20:54 (one year ago) Permalink

it's a complete one-off and not so much metal but the title track of 'discontinuities' is a microtonal guitar instrumental and you might enjoy it

odysseus (imago), Thursday, 18 February 2016 21:32 (one year ago) Permalink

Not to my knowledge, sorry. imo Ship of Theseus is musically a bit more engaging (more RIFFS) so it might detract from the vocals a bit more. fwiw I'm not the hugest fan of his voice either but I'm not picky when it comes to screams/growls etc

space prophet wogan (ultros ultros-ghali), Thursday, 18 February 2016 21:34 (one year ago) Permalink

I listened to "Discontinuities" a minute ago but it didn't do much for me. it just sounds like he left the tape recorder running as he messed around with microtones as an exercise — it's kind of anonymous and there just isn't anything interesting going on compositionally or stylistically compared to (what little I've heard of) his metal stuff. but maybe I'd change my mind if I heard it within the context of the album. I'll give Ship of Theseus a try, but I have almost no patience for metal growling unless it's buried very deep in the mix.

small doug yule carnival club (unregistered), Thursday, 18 February 2016 22:24 (one year ago) Permalink

There are longer stretches without vocals on Ship of Theseus iirc, and I think his composition did grow more sophisticated (to the point where I don't need the vocals much of the time), but, yeah, extreme metal vocals are part of the package, generally.

So, The Sparrow.

https://bluetapes.bandcamp.com/album/x-ray-five-the-sparrow-12

Opening track is still amazing - not as dense, intricate or punishing in many ways as his more overtly black metal stuff, and it doesn't go crazy on the polytempic electronics either - it's more of a Branca-esque neoclassical piece in five movements, almost entirely for guitar. It features some of his most breathtaking polyphony yet, and some of his scariest music. sund4r and DAM you guys have GOT to hear it. I'm listening to that Branca thing in exchange :P

Second track Monadanom is another avant-classical piece - more ambient and with more swirling sonic depth (where The Sparrow was military and relentless, this is psychedelic and sly) - lots of very unsettling and unusual sounds in the mix, as well as what sounds like backwards guitar (the palindromic conceit of the title perhaps tying in here). Around halfway through it blossoms into an immense and cavernous layered drone before retreating into chilling microtonal sighs. I'm yet to fully wrap my head around it but it might even be the more impressive piece.

Nobody else is expressing an opinion on this so I don't know how to calibrate my own. It's amazing? Will that do?

Bonus: John Doran of sometimes this very parish has given it probably the best blurb any record in 2016 has received.

I haven't listened to this yet (my concentration span for music is pisspoor these days, thanks mental health), am definitely interested in the more avant-classical side of JG though I wonder if I'll still find it not quite living up to the hype. Mainly posting here to point out to imago that Blue Tapes were also responsible for Katie Gately's first tape and I highly recommend you poke around the rest of their output (full disclosure: BT head honcho is a pal and I know it's a labour of love so promoting it to people may well be kinda shilling but also I genuinely think you're going to like a load of it).

emil.y, Thursday, 22 December 2016 23:48 (seven months ago) Permalink

yeah Blue Tapes guy seems great! will definitely have a poke about. 'pipes' was a truly astounding release and if there's anything even remotely close to that on the roster it'll be worth checking out!

imago, Tuesday, 20 June 2017 21:39 (one month ago) Permalink

The predecessor was named Old Ways to parody Black Metal's idealisation of basically non-existent ideas of old Nordic culture and cos it's the name of a Neil Young album (no further explanation), so yeah. I sometimes think there might be a fair amount of humour in his overwrought album notes on Bandcamp.

albvivertine, Tuesday, 20 June 2017 21:46 (one month ago) Permalink

I only have like two of his records but they really repay close attention when I have close attention to give. I think time will show this guy to have been a valuable addition to the field, there's nobody really like him even though all the elements are familiar.

it is a terrifying, alienating, crazed album. also I think it's not as good as the last few, but these are early impressions as i try to get my head around it. feels like it comes from an incredibly dark place and was a sort of punishment to make. perhaps these songs could be shorter (except the opening track, which is amazing and could be longer) but that would maybe spoil the protraction of the pain idk

Title track is what's inside the Boîte Diabolique, 42 and soon to be 43 scarred souls forever

imago, Friday, 7 July 2017 19:00 (three weeks ago) Permalink

First impression: this album seems quite a bit more... accessible (relatively speaking obv) than its predecessors? There's bigger spaces in between the riffing and microtonal freakery. The build up in the first two songs doesn't throw you off in the deep end immediately (tho obv you'll find yourself there at the end). Less relentless, more menacing and creeping up on you.

Mice Eating's lost couple of minutes are simply beautiful in a sense his music is hardly ever beautiful, ie. straightforward.

Ok the above was just about the first two songs :-/

"Yarinareth, Yarinareth, Yarinareth, which signifieth Beyond—these words be carved in letters of gold upon the arch of the great portal of the Temple of Roon that men have builded looking towards the East upon the Sea, where Roon is carved as a giant trumpeter, with his trumpet pointing towards the East beyond the Seas."

Circling down ever further w/ the beginning of 'The Norms', which feels as catatonic as it feels cleansing. The whole composition feels like sitting in a cart, not controlling the horse, and constantly feel the stabbing of the cart in your side as you make twists and turns, down unknown corridors and alleys with mirror clad walls.

I know I'm not doing anyone a favour here with all this. But yeah, this is a great fucking album. Precisely because it comes from such a dark, dark place, like LJ mentioned. In a way it feels more accessible than his last couple of albums, but that's probably because I've only touched the surface. Too afraid for a headphone listen right now.

Le Bateau Ivre, Friday, 7 July 2017 19:32 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Last minutes of 'The Norms' are again heavenly, w/ the bells. Unearthly delight, lush like I've not heard from him ever before (though I don't know all his stuff).

'Oviri': the swallowing is whole, after being devoured this oddly feels like a warm bath. Within an absolute nightmare. (it is this one that ends way too soon and sudden for me tbh. I wasn't ready yet)
