Agree. Actually there's some pretty advanced voivody harmonics in parts of these, and there is paid special attention to how riffs 'loop'. Meaning that whenever the guitarist wrote parts he wanted to repeat a lot of times in a row, he made certain that the riff didn't seam back into itself in a way that was predictable, but it wasn't jarring either. Good metric concepts, very nice pauses that accent oddness. Generally very nice mesostructural attention. I'd like lyrics too to know what it's about but can't have it allWhat I find especially alluring is the balance of quirkiness and classica. Not too quirky and not overtly melodic.
Correct! I find the production PERFECT for this. I did normalise +6dB the rip that I downloaded from here because it was too quiet, but otherwise this is robust and breathing. Great for noticing detail, but also heavy fuckin' metal. In some ways this is exactly how I want my ancient metal to sound. Like human beings play it, no metronomes, rugged but with clarity and order. A nice juxtaposition of human and superhuman traitsUnpollished production helps to expose this feature as well. The »thrashiness«, the »progressiveness« and the »epicness« are well woven together.
I'd say you're going too far here. The first Sieges Even has endless structural depth to examine. A few songs in there are absolute gems of song-making, not just riff-making or complication-making Definitely the most listenable TT release after Control and Resistance. This comes in third though!I would pick it even prior Sieges Even debut, for it is deeper and may open more surprising perspectives.
Well, after I checked the old thread in Poisonoise, I saw you really promised to post demos. Do as you see fit.doomedplanet wrote: So I guess I need to rip this for the forum is what you are saying? did I promise it once? I forgot if that is so, along with TEMPEST it looks like!
