I also don't really get any boners over Or an assy pajew jew or whatever. This other Australian band that's pretty new to me I would call psychedelic black metal though and I like them. Called Midnight Odyssey.





double album by the way. 2 hours. Haven't listened to the whole thing but I imagine it being pretty awesome...and tiring lol.

That stuff is pretty fine but not really close to as interesting or fascinating as Oranssi Pazuzu is. This isn't bad, though.

With Pazuzu, there's the rockish flare, the prominent bass lines that portrays different moods and the total ambiance that makes it seem like you don't know the reality of if you're in space or hallucinating about it (or both, the theme of the band being space in general). I just prefer how unique each song is to the whole, while still creating fun songs.

Andromeda is really good.. almost done with album and I'm really liking it, but definitely not as memorable as their other full length. Will check out the Midnight Odyssey in a sec

Just finished Agape in one sitting. He wasn't kidding when he said he was taking the band elsewhere.

Capsule review:

+ Neige's vocals. Holy shit this guy is at the top of his game here. Might be career-best, or at least equal to Ruines Humaines.

+ as has been mentioned: DAT BASS

+ production really impresses, soundscape-wise this is much fuller than .neon

+ there's some genuinely original sounds going on in here. coming from a scene and a style that has been overexposed, I was very surprised to go "WTF is this and I love it?" (see: Bloody Lips and Paper Skin 1:50-onwards). Wall of sound done well, and with an original flair to it. Neither your typical post-metal/shoegaze thing, nor the pseudo pop you sometimes get. I was getting immense enjoyment out of just trying to track the melodies.

+ the jazzy sections feel more authentic this time around. I love them on .neon, but they did have an almost "too clean to be genuine" kinda vibe, and essentially I just liked them because they contrasted well with "AARAARRAAAGGHHblastbeatblastbeat!!!!". The jazzy stuff here is more engaging to me, and the production ties it in better with the rest of the album.

+ guy has flair, he puts little lead-guitar touches all over the place that really elevate it.

- some of the rhythm-guitar riffs he elevates with his awesome lead guitar aren't that inspiring.

- it occasionally becomes a tad plodding with the doom-esque pace, stays a tad too long on a riff that isn't quite good enough.

- not enough awesome blastbeating Neige-screaming crescendos over awesome black metal riffs. Even at its best, this album is more "interesting" than the "holy fuck this is awesome!"-reaction that I got from .neon.

- there was definitely room for a sixth closer. Which should have gone something like this:

- Herbst drumming is sorely missed. New guy does a good job, but Herbst had a very distinct style.

I liked the vocals here better actually as they're screechier than on .neon. I did prefer the clean sections from .neon to all, though.

Cleans better on .neon. Better enunciation, I actually could understand the harsh vocals, but have no fucking clue what he said on the clean ones. Harsh ones are amazing on AGAPE.

Lol bullshit he wasn't far better with Peste Noire, Mortifera, Alcest and Amesoeurs.

He's always had a unique voice, and the shrieking style has been complemented with fuller, more growly version, but he still has that trembling emotional quality. Best of both worlds.

To be fair some of it may be the production, to me it sounds too burried in the background
