That was unexpected
Such a terrible band name
How can you expect us to move on.
band was always weirder than they were good. but they were cool i guess.
Got here too late
Not unexpected with such a bad band name
has anyone done
Digging: Grotesque - The Black Gate is Closed
Haha I inspected this lol
Never heard of them till now; was totally missing out. Damn shame..
i expected these puns, you should have come up with something more unexpected
you all should be ashamed of yourselves
could of sworn this already happened
Well that sucks
"I expected these puns, you should have come up with something more unexpected"
Digging: Daughters - You Won't Get What You Want
"Wouldn't call these guys experimental at all"
umm Fables is pretty wacky. pretty rad band i'd say. this kinda sucks
cool band rip
fuck you guys and fuck your puns
I did not anticipate this
"It's not really experimental as far as ethos is concerned as much as it, more or less, just a pastiche of a whole bunch of things..."
Disagreed. Their songwriting (both whole song structures and individual sections) is clearly experimental; its complexity and degree of appropriation shows an almost aggressive desire to push boundaries. They did stay within a certain comfort zone for their entire career, but it is highly unlikely that anyone could write songs like Summoning Scenes and Chromatic Chimera without an ethos based upon innovation and exploration.
Anyway, this is hugely unsurprising and kinda lame.
I've only heard Fables by these guys and it's decent, but nothing more.
Digging: Evoken - Hypnagogia
The Quantum Symphony still slays butt
hey enyafangirl fuck you, that's like commenting "they sucked" in a "RIP _______" thread. show some freaking respect you
Not really cause these guys weren't that good so....
And no one actually died. Its just a band, don't get so salty
hawks they actually were what the fuck? they were a great band with two excellent albums and a fantastic EP. certainly the best avant-garde metal has to offer prove me wrong. they wrote the best melodies, had the best female vocals, most creative blending of genres/sounds. the main thing is the melodies, my god the melodies. particularly on Fables. and that song In Velvet Coffins We Slept. genius.
and emester im not food? i don't have salt on? me?
Ugh. This really sucks.
"certainly the best avant-garde metal has to offer prove me wrong"
They were pretty cool, but no.
i said prove me wrong. not telling me bands who are better is not proving me wrong
I hadn't heard of them till I read this post and have only heard the first half of Fables, but wow this was an incredible group. A little like a fresher more enjoyable BtBaM with more symphonic and experimental leanings.
I hope the members cook up some good stuff in the future.
Just a few that are better off the top of my head.
avant garde metal
I will agree with these 3 being better but Unexpect were still good and sucks that they disbanded.
The members of this band have other projects?
Hawks, thank you. I have only heard The Sham Mirrors by Arcturus which didn't do much for me. I'll check out the others for sure.
They were so good for this world
Digging: SRSQ - Unreality
"hey enyafangirl fuck you, that's like commenting "they sucked" in a "RIP _______" thread. show some freaking respect you "
How DARE you disrespect a band I like after their tragic amicable breakup?!?!?!?
*sigh* Sad day. They had at least one more album in them
Digging: Pale - Pale
That was unexpected [∞]
Digging: The Ocean - Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic
"certainly the best avant-garde metal has to offer prove me wrong."
how am i meant to take you seriously when you gave californication a 1?
When RHCP was first formed their goal was to create soundtracks for gay sexy orgies/parties, they succeeded. I don't like the band big deal.
but seriously Unexpect isn't the best of anything.
the number of puns itt is quite unexpected
Well, that was...
Pretty good band, very sad. People who think they are somehow far down the (abysmal) avant-metal ladder need to get an overview.
Shame, last two albums were really solid.
