I'm very surprised that this is next to unnoticed, and has no review. Let's fix that shall we?
I liked it (review), might have to get this come morning.
Digging: Emika - DVA
Thanks Acanthus, i'm planning on doing one of the other albums too.
I've been feeling like listening to something different (not electronic) and have been delving back into my few BM albums and such, figure I might give this a go.
It might not be something you fully expect to hear coming from a band like this.
True, change is nice though especially when implemented correctly in the genre.
If you get around to checking these guys out, have a look at their other stuff too. Production is a little better on the newer stuff.
Album Rating: 1.5
this review blows, what a fucking surprise
All well, at least i got a couple more ratings out of this before this thread went dead.
I disagree, review is quite good, as always. As for the music, I'm not sure how much I'd like this, not big on black metal and all... Still, good one, Ipod.
Give it a go Bodom, its no ordinary black metal.
Comparing positively track to track is the balance between familiar trends and the albums actual diversity
This is kinda awkward
Yes there is a steady array of a black metal bands instrumentation i.e.
Yes, the usual black metal elements are all present.... or something like that, seeing as how you talk about instrumentation and then list vocals
Positively when adding to the listening experience there is piano interludes that can be found during points of ‘Silence Before the Great Mountain Wind’ and monastery like chanting throughout the album that attracts the listeners softer side and adds to the albums diversity.
The beginning of this is kinda strange; something like "To upset the constant onslaught of the jagged distortion (or whatever you wanna dream up) small moments of "............" and "............" appear that reveal a much softer and, ultimately, more diverse side to the artist" or some such nonsense
When clocking in at just under an hour
*while clocking in
Silence Before The Great Mountain Wind gives listeners enough to keep listeners
satisfied whilst not creating a boredom that appears on the latter half of the album
I'm sorry but this is horribly written
to create tasteful songs on a highly consistent level.
I thought the second half was boring?
Some aspects of this release do have a negative effect on the album.
Well I kinda doubt it's going to have a negative effect on any other album
The only sections were tracks
Listeners should incorporate the theme into their personal listen to create a greater acceptance for the album simply because that was the way the music was written.
Would you like me to go and sit out in the snow or perhaps enter the abode of the wolves?
At least its less than last time. Right?
There's the positive attitude!
I'll be honest with you though; I don't mind doing this but you're at what, 37 reviews now? These things should be sorting themselves out really
Even though ReturnToRock has about a million reviews that's essentially the same recycled dross full of errors and shudder-inducing faux pas'
Thanks Dev, i think it should be noted that i have only writing experience here on sputnik. My music theory training and that does not exactly cover grammar and such.
My only real writing experience is here
Ill get there Dev, don't lose hope
I'm hopelessly devout
At least I'm not doing albums with reviews already. Taking the advice of others, i take what i can on board. A bit by bit.
