I am not sad! But the nights are drawing in. They have a nobility which suits this time of year.

i am sad and the second half of the album 'a natural disaster' is not what i needed to hear right now, but dammit if it's not playing

...'violence' is just...just...oh man.

New album is out and is good, maybe even very good in their own quiet way.
The Pink Floyd/ Cure vibes are still there, but there's a new fresh, summery feeling that I quite like.

one year passes...

So I've only heard their newest, which I checked out after seeing it pop up in a bunch of places. I really don't get too much of The Cure vibes, more Floyd though. A lot of it I find kinda boring though, how does this (Weather Systems) stack up against the older stuff discussed in this thread?

just heard the first three tracks, if you like this sound work your way backwards through the catalog. they used to be my one of my favorite bands, but I got tired of all this emotional excess. it is just. too. much.

it is sad what happened to the melodic death / doom / goth metal bands from the early 90s, most of them (all?) ended up doing this sort of tearful and overproduced hard rock. compare all that crying to these two songs:

thanks! yeah its weird running into what those bands sound like now. for example, i'd never heard a Paradise Lost record before until this year's. read a lot about them, but i missed out on them. anyway, i hear the new one and i'm like, "people think this is awesome?! like this is barely better than Nickelback".

man, they're still going? i was way into PL circa 'draconian times', and the record before and after that.

late-night silent enigma listening session in headphones here - really good. interesting to me to hear the legacy of first valor/rozz era Xian death & Celtic Frost's take on that synthesized in this band - I think those strains have a heavy legacy in this sort of mournful doom

fuck, maybe there's better shit to dig at 230 am with some whiskey but I'm hard pressed to say what it is. the depth of the journey on this album is the whole deal, those repeating picked notes in the "nocturnal emission" fade...the ongoing hum...what an album

Yeah all time top 10 for me, that one.

I saw them at the Old Trout in Windsor. Must have been, christ, 1993? They were fantastic. Had no idea they still existed or that they'd changed styles. Listening to Violence right now. Nice chops.
