PostSubject: When the Kite String Pops   Thu Mar 31, 2011 3:30 am

Someone explain this title to me. It's always confounded me. How does a kite string pop? WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? I look at the cover, see the balloons, and think, "Hey, balloons pop. But the album's not called When the Balloons Pop. What the shit is this?"

THAT DOESN'T ANSWER MY QUESTION.

And why does When the Kite String Poops Swiss Cake Rolls (i.e., Jizz + Shit = Swiss Cake Rolls) overshadow Paegan Terrorism Tactics when the latter is clearly superior?

And why are so many of Dax Riggs' songs sofa king annoying? Opening track to his first solo/non-deadboy album, fer example. "Demon tie-yie-yied to a chair...in my brain." Shit irritates me. Dude's an overrated wanksauce indie doofus. But We Are Night Sky is awesome.

Paegan Terrorism Tactics is better, I'm glad you already know this.

I always liked Paegan better. The heavier songs were way more aggressive/punx, and it had the best acoustic songs on it as well.

That and PTT doesn't feel like it goes on for five hours.

I don't think the heavier songs were more aggressive per se. They were faster in most cases, but that doesn't mean they were more aggressive.

Yeah, you're probably right. The heavy songs on Kite Strings had more of a groovy old-school death metal feel to it, while the ones on Paegan felt more crust-punkish.

Energetic might've been a better word.

You do know the cover is a painting by John Wayne Gacey right?

Kite String has more of a straight up doom influenced sludge sound. PTT just bounces all over the map. I know the two songs you're thinking of that seem more crust-punkish (I still don't really know what crust-punk is, I have an idea, anyway), those being 13 Fingers and the one after that, but the rest of the album isn't like that. Its just more musically mature that Kite String. It was just as much about creating a haunting atmosphere as it was about the actual music. Even the songs that were straight up Sludge on PTT like Bleed me An Ocean were much more developed than anything on Kite String.

Don't get me wrong, I like Kite String, (scream of hte Butterfly is easily one of hteir best songs), but PTT just had something magic going in the studio. Almost like they knew it'd be their last album together or something. And Dax's performance on PTT is way better than on Kite String. I recall a quote from him saying he was channeling the spirit of Roy Orbison during recording.

Crust is basically a really heavy, aggressive form of punk.

Venom has a lot of crust influence. So do a lot of black metal bands, in fact. I can definitely hear it in Emperor/Wrath of the Tyrant whenever I listen to it.

I don't have that EP.

Anyway, yeah, I would have just classifed that stuff as Metal, but whatever. I can't keep up with the genres anymore.

You can't even keep up with your crappy descriptions of music either.

I like Kite String better than Paegan, but Paegan has my favorite individual Acid bath song ("Venus Blue"), and both albums are basically 9.5+/10s in my eyes, really.

I don't really have many to be honest. Other than I still segregate metal, all my other stuff just gets filed under the general name (Jazz, Hip-Hop, Country, etc)
