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 (one month ago) link

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

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 (one month ago) link

lmao from the first track i love it

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

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

Abso-fucking-lutely.

wonder if this album syncs up with end of evangelion

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.

Greg is long gone!

imago, Wednesday, 13 November 2019 00:51 (one month 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 (one month ago) link

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

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 13 November 2019 03:12 (one month 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.

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 (one month 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.

Ok this is sounding much better with fresh ears

Love all the bell tones

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

pomenitul, Wednesday, 13 November 2019 16:22 (one month 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 (one month ago) link

Nah the first track is great too.

pomenitul, Wednesday, 13 November 2019 16:31 (one month ago) link

First track is huge, kicks it all off proper.

Le Bateau Ivre, Wednesday, 13 November 2019 16:42 (one month ago) link

This record is fucking crazy

I think I love it

Paul Ponzi, Thursday, 14 November 2019 22:16 (four 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 (four 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 (four 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.
