Just the rating, and there's no guarantee that all ratings will change. Consequently, it displays the links between art and pain in a wonderful manner. It's hard to even say the guitar playing even consists of riffs, hardly anything repeats itself and they just play ever evolving dissonance with tons of reverby effects. Not only was the music written with a clear theme in mind, the quality of each side of the split is amazing. Despite that this isn't some lo-fi experimental noisy black metal, the production is clear and you hear everything really well, the music is controlled and exceptionally well written. Like, unlearning how to play and trying to create music based on not knowing how to create music. If something doesn't sound like anything I've established already, it becomes a new thing, which is how Skáphe started.
Can you elaborate on your stylistic guidelines? Lycanthropic Burrowing by One Master Skáphe — Untitled Black metal that sends listeners into a frenzied psychosis. In one spot there's no percussion, and it's kind of freeform, but you're still following a meter, it seems. Originally it was split into different songs, but I wanted it to kind of flow as one piece as my trip. What happened between the two?. We've been experimenting with a lot of different sounds and pushing the boundaries comfort-wise for us.
I think everything else on my list is pretty well known and somewhat expected from me. Gestroomlijnde partijen gaan hand in hand met ongecontroleerde chaos en jazzy improvisatie — zo lijkt het althans toch — en gitzwarte atmosfeer. Noisey: Where did this project come from for you? De lente is eindelijk daar, de konijntjes beginnen te huppelen en de eerste zonnestralen doen de knopjes aan platen en bomen weelderig groeien. It all kind of comes from one source. Once upon a time, I ingested mushrooms that were much too strong for my constitution.
For twenty two minutes Skáphe take the listener on a dissonant, drugged up black metal journey through caustic non-euclidean labyrinths inhabited by shadowy demons from the bowels of hell - and it's fucking fantastic. Ik kan hier echt hele dagen naar zitten luisteren, ook al gaat dit nog een stapje verder dan het alom geprezen Deathspell Omega, en krijgt de Studio 100 black metal-liefhebber hier waarschijnlijk een instant zenuwinzinking van. Alex Poole en Dagur Gonzales — ik hoef beide heren ondertussen niet meer voor te stellen aan de trouwe volgelingen van onze blog — doen deze lentetaferelen echter als sneeuw voor de zon verdwijnen, want hun ultieme duisternis werpt een doodse sfeer op het eerste nieuwe leven. Any project that falls within our stylistic guidelines will be released through this label. The album is officially released on July 14 take my word that this album rips. Rekevics simply get black metal.
Part of the album's success comes from founder Alex Poole , recruiting his bandmate and Icelandic black metal scene mainstay D. One Master channels much of the thunderous Finnish black metal scene, see bands like Satanic Warmaster or Behexen for reference. I wanted to explore horrible sounds but make them musical. Het venijnige serpent dat onder de naam Skáphe doorheen de extreme ondergrond kronkelt, weet als geen ander de luisteraar te verstikken eens haar giftanden zich in je malse vlees nestelen. We have a lot of ideas that we'll reveal over time, but this is pretty much the end game for us. Alex Poole Krieg, Chaos Moon and D.
As We Cup Our Hands… does what many other albums are able to do: make listeners feel. How much of it is spent on new releases probably hugely varies from week to week but I assume it would be not more than 35% of it, because I feel this is an assumption not an observed data for every new release I listen, I spend at least twice the time on my old favourites. I use them as tools. It's also a tool for us to collaborate on boutique projects. This year, however, I ended up leaning hard towards the metal end of things, and even so I was not able to break the 150 album mark despite making it a point to devote at least two of the four to five albums I listen to each day to new releases. Misþyrming and Naðra built Skáphe into a blackened, psychedelic menace. Are you doing those as a way to come up with ideas or just experimenting and this happened as a result? How does collaborating with someone who is 3,000 miles away work? Impressions of being on the edge of madness come to mind when listening to this outstanding work.
I hope I'm not being intrusive asking this, but now that I have found myself in a position where one particular genre has dominated my listening, rather than finding these kinds of insanely detailed lists less mystifying, I am only more baffled. With the album, I compressed everything together. Some artists only release demos and splits while others just use it as a stop gap between full lengths. I turned off the lights and listened repeatedly to the tracks at maximum volume, until I was in a sort of a trance where I felt I had become one with the music. There is a lot going on. En toch is er geen sprake van een ongeleid projectiel want er is een zekere flow ingebouwd die je stelselmatig een stapje verder het vacuum inzuigt.
In the final two minutes it all fades away until we're left with one massive bassy drone and strange percussion. What are your plans for Mystískaos beyond releases from Skáphe and Wormlust? These songs could basically be journal entries from psychedelic experiences in music form. I closed myself off in the space where I had my recording equipment. Join us the first weekend of January for our Top 10 Albums. The result is enough to drive any sober person into unease and dismay. It starts off with industrial sounding drums and guitar dissonance which morphs into a psychedelic wash of slow moving angular riffage, not particularly heavy but already creating a deranged atmosphere. One that's pretty evident is, like, a really bad acid trip, which I've gone through, so I can push that into the music.
