New album is out aaaah

opener is fucking sick

The Nepalese lady who cleans my room just came in and slowly backed out again. Fair response: this is fucking mental.

Wooaaaah. Hajj just turned into a metal version of a Star Wars planet theme, then a misdial, then a march. Lol.

Lol.

Looooooool

Frederik B, Tuesday, 12 November 2019 17:50 (three weeks ago) link

I mean this is going to encourage loads of impressionistic drivel but that first track is like listening to the original Star Trek theme while being entombed in an iron maiden full of icicles.

EXACO!!!

Frederik B, Tuesday, 12 November 2019 17:54 (three weeks ago) link

The title-track is truly something, if you make it that far (which you should)

imago, Tuesday, 12 November 2019 17:57 (three weeks ago) link

The sound of this is so crazy, but makes so much sense. It feels weirdly streamlined, even though it's all over the place.

Frederik B, Tuesday, 12 November 2019 19:32 (three weeks ago) link

I think back when we were talking White Ward someone was dissapointed that it didn't sound more like cosmic jazz / Ayler / Alice Coltrane, and I was like 'lol, that can't be done'. But here we kinda are? And it's amazing.

Frederik B, Tuesday, 12 November 2019 20:12 (three weeks ago) link

I guess I have no choice but to hear this now.

pomenitul, Tuesday, 12 November 2019 20:14 (three weeks ago) link

loving this so far. jesus christ

AOTY

Le Bateau Ivre, Tuesday, 12 November 2019 21:44 (three weeks ago) link

This is amazing.

Le Bateau Ivre, Tuesday, 12 November 2019 21:44 (three weeks ago) link

the climactic build of the title-track is like staring into a new form of art, or something

imago, Tuesday, 12 November 2019 21:51 (three weeks ago) link

One would almost say, a micro genre :D

Head's spinning in the best way possible. Played it twice now and it somehow seems to be over in 20 minutes idk. What a glorious catharsis.

Le Bateau Ivre, Tuesday, 12 November 2019 21:54 (three weeks ago) link

Finding it literally unlistenable rn, but my ears are kinda fried already and I have a headache, so I'll try another time. So far the glitchy Pro Tools edits are not appealing, that's an ugly & dated effect imo.

change display name (Jordan), Tuesday, 12 November 2019 21:58 (three weeks ago) link

Jesus Jordan I so completely feel the opposite. Ew, but, my ears want to have sex with this record. The piano of Exaco I sounds crisp and so sincere to me. The glitchy stuff fits well in a prog-like, 'fooled you we're taking this song into an entirely different direction' kind of way. This is the opposite of ugly and dated for me personally. Crazy as it is it all fits together and paints a masterpiece imo.

Le Bateau Ivre, Tuesday, 12 November 2019 22:01 (three weeks ago) link

i cannot wait to hear it but i'm also at a loss to describe what i even want from this band after the ark work

american bradass (BradNelson), Tuesday, 12 November 2019 22:24 (three weeks ago) link

my answer to that admittedly pertinent question is simply 'more'

imago, Tuesday, 12 November 2019 22:38 (three weeks ago) link

The glitches are at once awful and so so perfect. They felt a bit gimmicky on Ark Work, and now they feel like an essential part of the style.

Frederik B, Tuesday, 12 November 2019 22:43 (three weeks ago) link

lmao from the first track i love it

american bradass (BradNelson), Tuesday, 12 November 2019 22:55 (three weeks ago) link

This one also benefits tremendously from being the correct length for a Liturgy album

Simon H., Tuesday, 12 November 2019 23:19 (three weeks ago) link

as with the ark work i'm kinda loling through every song in a good way

Abso-fucking-lutely.

Le Bateau Ivre, Tuesday, 12 November 2019 23:23 (three weeks ago) link

wonder if this album syncs up with end of evangelion

american bradass (BradNelson), Tuesday, 12 November 2019 23:37 (three weeks ago) link

So glad they are still making music. Always seemed like the rest of the band was annoyed with Hunter in interviews and such but they always get back together and make these crazy great albums. id be fine if I never heard the term transcendental black metal ever again but I do love this. Also, Greg is a really good dude who just loves making music and art. New album rules. The first track and the title track are beyond excellent.

Brad otm, this feels equally of that show as The Inalienable Dreamless.

gman59, Wednesday, 13 November 2019 00:26 (three weeks ago) link

Greg is long gone!

imago, Wednesday, 13 November 2019 00:51 (three weeks ago) link

wow. I should have really looked that up. I thought he was still in the band. I take that part back

gman59, Wednesday, 13 November 2019 01:47 (three weeks ago) link

all of the riffs in "pasaqalia" make me think of emo a lot

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 13 November 2019 03:12 (three weeks ago) link

I take it all back. Different bass player too. Damn. Didn't realize all of the personnel changes but the music is still great.

gman59, Wednesday, 13 November 2019 03:14 (three weeks ago) link

much as i love the ark work for being perversely intractable (until you adjust and figure out it’s very catchy), pretty sure this is the populist (as much as it ever could be) masterpiece that also stretches their music way out

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 13 November 2019 03:31 (three weeks ago) link

Rereading the Transcendental Black Metal manifesto, it's still so so annoying - and kinda racist towards Norwegians - but it honestly makes a lot of sense and explains a lot of what goes into these last few albums. Took ten years, but he delivered on his thoughts, lol.

Frederik B, Wednesday, 13 November 2019 12:29 (three weeks ago) link

Ok this is sounding much better with fresh ears

change display name (Jordan), Wednesday, 13 November 2019 16:05 (three weeks ago) link

Love all the bell tones

change display name (Jordan), Wednesday, 13 November 2019 16:07 (three weeks ago) link

lol this is bespoke lj fodder. Enjoying it so far.

pomenitul, Wednesday, 13 November 2019 16:22 (three weeks ago) link

Also it helped to skip the first track, that one is just a lot. Every other track has some kind of unexpected element, or at least a break in the assault.

change display name (Jordan), Wednesday, 13 November 2019 16:28 (three weeks ago) link

Nah the first track is great too.

pomenitul, Wednesday, 13 November 2019 16:31 (three weeks ago) link

First track is huge, kicks it all off proper.

Le Bateau Ivre, Wednesday, 13 November 2019 16:42 (three weeks ago) link

This record is fucking crazy

I think I love it

Paul Ponzi, Thursday, 14 November 2019 22:16 (three weeks ago) link

Awww no physical release till the end of February.

Definitely AOTY material here, at least for me

Paul Ponzi, Thursday, 14 November 2019 22:30 (three weeks ago) link

This record is zany as hell and probably their best, I'm on board. Dude's vocals are still terrible though, this should've been an instrumental record.

Siegbran, Thursday, 14 November 2019 23:23 (three weeks ago) link

Gargantuan record. One might mistake the operatic flirtations and overcautious 'building up to a climax' for a flaw, but it's done so charmingly, so damn coy, while at the same time being integrated in their sound so very well. The opening notes leading up to the disarming nue of Exaco III and the beginning of the title song, man... Sincerity overrides pretentiousness, again and again. A masterpiece.

Le Bateau Ivre, Monday, 25 November 2019 19:12 (one week ago) link
