In a Tampere dungeon lurks the best rock music of our time. And now it has its own thread. Let us celebrate two most excellent bands, and their supreme combination - dare you risk your mind in the Syntheosis?

(it's on Spotify as well)

A friend of mine was obsessed with the ‘zuzu for a while a couple of years ago. I have ‘Valonielu’ but not listened to it for ages.

I do quite like Kairon; IRSE! however.

Kairon are amazing as well, yes :) but they're not part of this collective I think. Happy to broaden this to all (good) Finnish psych-metal though...

Kairon Irse share a guitarist with OP I believe

like him hate us? Sure you are. Its in the cool aid. (ultros ultros-ghali), Sunday, 7 April 2019 00:10 (eleven months ago) link

I'm bumping this because this is my album of the year, and because I want to talk about Marko Neuman

So this^ is probably my SONG of the year, a furious synthesis of vocal styles and coruscating guitars. Imagine my surprise to learn that Marko Neuman is responsible for EVERY vocal on the track! Look, here's its original live incarnation from Roadburn, who commissioned the piece (starts about 9/10 minutes into the video):

It's all one guy! A quite unbelievable performance!

Not a surprise when you hear him talk about his favourite records though:

I met this girl at a bar and we ended up in my apartment. This was also back in the​ late 90s. It was late at night and we were sitting in the living room on the couch and I​ decided to put some music on. I turned off all the lights and put The Litanies of Satan in the player and turned the volume as loud as possible. After a while the girl started to freak out because of the vocals on the record and asked if I​ could change the music. I suggested that we s​hould listen​ to​ the whole album and she started freaking out more and left. At that moment I​ realis​ed that through art I​ want to have a similar impact on​ people like Litanies of Satan had on​ that girl.

i don't understand guys who bring girls they don't like back to their apartment, shit man it's ok to go home alone!

Jaki Liebowitz (rushomancy), Sunday, 14 April 2019 14:21 (eleven months ago) link

he liked her until she failed the Diamanda Test tbf

imago, Sunday, 14 April 2019 14:23 (eleven months ago) link

if you take a girl you've just met home from a bar and your idea of a good time is listening to the litanies of satan with her you don't really like her

Jaki Liebowitz (rushomancy), Sunday, 14 April 2019 14:41 (eleven months ago) link

if you listen to his performance on Wake Up The Possessor it's hard to argue he hasn't some of Galas' spirit, though...

imago, Sunday, 14 April 2019 14:43 (eleven months ago) link

that's cool, i'm still not going out with him

Jaki Liebowitz (rushomancy), Sunday, 14 April 2019 17:55 (eleven months ago) link

Been listening to DBR, especially Ritual IX. Enneargy has to be one of the best doom songs of all time, right? It's next-level. Such depth and lightness amongst the heft. Will be ploughing through the rest of the Dark Trilogy soon...great sunshine music

imago, Monday, 22 April 2019 12:13 (eleven months ago) link

Yeah, that quote makes him sound like a massive dick

Duke, Monday, 22 April 2019 16:11 (eleven months ago) link

But I'll still pick up this album

Fortunately the other quote in the interview makes him sound way cooler:


I remember listening to​ this album on Sunday nights back in late 90s. Lying in my bed having a cigarette in one hand and a knife in​ the ​other hand. Those were beautiful moments.

"Wake Up The Possessor" is definitely the standout on the album so far.

enochroot, Monday, 22 April 2019 17:43 (eleven months ago) link

DBR are SO satisfying, they're like a nine-course meal. Enneathan hits similar pleasure centres as GY!BE used to, except this is much better, at least to me now. The first part is just the most amazing rangy monster of a song, building to quite incredible intensity and then pushing on, further and further, as the guitarist gradually sets fire to the world.

I'm now listening to Entheomorphosis and finding it equally substantial. Most other modern doom can't hold a candle to this, for me. This is deeper, wilder and crazier, and it knows how to mix light and space with the heavy darkness in order to accentuate it

five months pass...

UPDATE

Vesperith! A female solo artist has been added to the Wastement circle! And it's good!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDmVEHWBFlI

Also, there's an OP live album now! I'm listening to VKH! It kicks ass!

imago, Friday, 4 October 2019 09:24 (five months ago) link

Her 2015 EP, Esoteros, is stunning. I have high hopes for her upcoming album.

pomenitul, Friday, 4 October 2019 09:25 (five months ago) link

I see you added it to RYM the other week and are hitherto the sole voter! Will have to check it out...

imago, Friday, 4 October 2019 09:32 (five months ago) link

one month passes...

Listening to the Vesperith now! Feels like it's a slow burner. Not a bad thing

imago, Sunday, 24 November 2019 12:13 (four months ago) link

It's more atmo than BM, which suits me just fine. I'm all for selenic Lisa Gerrard-esque Finns.

pomenitul, Sunday, 24 November 2019 12:30 (four months ago) link

the preview track appears to have been a fake-out yes. but the atmospheres are good!

imago, Sunday, 24 November 2019 12:30 (four months ago) link

actually this album is throwing me slightly - every track is very distinct! fourth track is absolutely where it's at, wow

imago, Sunday, 24 November 2019 12:38 (four months ago) link

& in fact the whole second half of this appears to be magnificent

imago, Sunday, 24 November 2019 12:46 (four months ago) link

I'm actually into this. This is quite good

the oxford book of chaos (Drugs A. Money), Tuesday, 26 November 2019 08:20 (four months ago) link

It's a little bloated though. Multishiva EP has a lot of the same vibes but is way leaner and more ferocious

the oxford book of chaos (Drugs A. Money), Monday, 9 December 2019 12:53 (three months ago) link

two months pass...

I've finally got this almost a year after making a mental note to buy it. Great stuff. I must check out DBR...

Duke, Saturday, 7 March 2020 18:08 (three weeks ago) link

Let us know how you get on with Ritual IX! Amazing album

I didn't want to get prematurely giddy over the teaser but fuxk yes.

Not a dancer by any traditional definition (Noel Emits), Saturday, 14 March 2020 11:08 (two weeks ago) link

if you asked me to name the best band in the world, this would be my snap answer

strangely hookworm but they manage ream shoegaze poetry (imago), Saturday, 14 March 2020 12:27 (two weeks ago) link

Ooooh

Duke, Saturday, 14 March 2020 14:24 (two weeks ago) link

great to confirm they go further that psych kinetic tip

synth dude must've had a blast recording this; disquieting oscillations on next level

gaudio, Thursday, 19 March 2020 18:11 (one week ago) link

heard an interview where they confirmed this was their 'most electro' album yet. excited doesn't even cover it

strangely hookworm but they manage ream shoegaze poetry (imago), Thursday, 19 March 2020 18:15 (one week ago) link

think i found the interview. same

(ha, this is were you guys talked about the vesperith record. had no idea, until now by reading the whole thread, that Jun-His was involved. still stand by my initial impression that vesperith's album is uplifting and radiating. a grower, too)
