|First week of autumn- my weekly playlist|
Every day before I go to work, I choose one cd from my collection and listen to it on both ways when reading on the train. I try to listen to one record a day, instead of being hooked on one for a week. As my favorite season has started, which is autumn (or Fall), I thought I might present a sample week, which smuggles quite a bit of the seasons climate. I guess you could call this list ‘’weekly digs’’.
Heaven is Gone
I am a big Type O Negative fan, and although Kenny’s voice is much different from Peters, and the Seventh Voids music is rather different from TON, it seems to be a nice continuation. Although at first I thought this album is a bit too constant, I see its full appearance now, and like it very much. The second half actually gets rather grungy (in the Alice in Chains way).
Dead End Kings
I bought this album because of the cover. I knew Katatonia from their latest effort, and liked it very much. I thought about exploring further, and I really, really loved the cover (as I am a bit of a cover bitch). The music turned out to be just as awesome, and better from Old Hearts Fall. Good listen for an autumn Tuesday.
Shrine Of New Generation Slaves
I was going to choose something different (Bruce Dickinson, I think). But I stood before my shelves and picked Riverside. As I know the other albums a bit better, I chose this album. I’m not sure if it’s very ‘’autumny’’, but it sure is reflective and matches this thoughtful time of the year.
I got this album when it came out. I liked it at first, but at times I had the same impression as with Seventh Void at the star. Certain parts of the album seemed to just go on and on, and seemed a bit like a band jamming in a garage, improvising. Too constant. But after a few listens I understood the whole concept (I’m not too bright with understanding doom, but I do like it), and since 2017 this album is one of my Autumn favorites and almost a tradition.
I love Opeth and always will, death or prog, clean or growl. Again, I was thinking of choosing something else, but then I remembered- today (Friday 27.09) is the premiere of Opeth’s new album! So, I chose Ghost Reveries. I listened to Pale Communion lately, Blackwater Park and Watershed were looped as well, so I thought that I might give a go to Ghost Reveries, which were always a favorite, but it had a bit of a vacation from me.
