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 (two years 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 (two years 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 (two years ago) Permalink

one month passes...

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 (two years 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 (two years 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 (two years 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 (two years 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.

the last 16-17 minutes of the album are basically an experiment in fear featuring absolutely no metal whatsoever

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

imago, Friday, 7 July 2017 19:00 (ten months 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."

Le Bateau Ivre, Friday, 7 July 2017 19:07 (ten months ago) Permalink

This is my shit. Swiveling synth like sounds playing ping pong on your soul as the table, ghouls trying to climb up from out the netherworld, abrasive riffs, just a bit o' proper despair all round, creepy crawly fingerpicking. And again an outro of what, two, three minutes, that sounds like insects running amok inside your skull culminating in an obliterating white noise. How could anyone not love this?!

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 (ten months 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)

Amazing.

Le Bateau Ivre, Friday, 7 July 2017 19:48 (ten months ago) Permalink

This... might not be his best but it's probably his most bizarre even by his standards. There are a few HOLY FUUUUCK moments but I don't like the way it jump-cuts between loud and quiet sections, I get that it's meant to be jarring but comes across as kind of lazy writing imo. Only listened to it the once so I guess this might change.

The review by that certain fucking dipshit on RYM might actually be the dumbest thing I've ever read on the internet, including transcriptions of Trump interviews

I have two albums, have listened to 'em some, but I very seldom say "you know what'd hit the spot right now is some Jute Gyte" - it's like doing critical theory, I enjoy the ride very occasionally.
