Stream new GY!BE

Godspeed You! Black Emperor are back with a new album Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress, which is currently streaming at The Guardian.

The album releases March 31 on Constellation Records, and reaches a run-time of 40:23.

The press release describes Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress as "huge unison riffage, savage noise/drone, oscillating overtones, guitar vs. string counterpoint, inexorable crescendos and scorched-earth transitions".

it's technically one track and it's a pretty slow burner. or at least they played it as one track live.

Kendrick, Sufjan and GSYBE in a week, sweet lord have mercy. Keen to give this a spin tomorrow, hoping they did something a bit more interesting than Allelujah

This reminds me a lot of A!DBA so far, which is a good thing. Obviously nothing they do will ever recapture the magic that was f#a# though

I don't think they're even aiming for something like f#a# anymore, which isn't bad at all because Allelujah was amazing in its own way

I love how the first track starts off upbeat with drums instead of having the typical buildup-climax-drone formula. I love every album and song in the GY!BE catalog, but their compositions have never been all that surprising after you've heard a couple of GY!BE's songs. I never bothered to listen to Behemoth either, so the teaser was a pleasant surprise. I am loving the second track too.

It drones and it drones well. That last track is just... Fuuuuuck me, it is so good. The first track is awesome too and the drones are way more entertaining than on Don't Bend. And I loved Don't Bend, I just tended to skip the drones. Not so this time around.
