HOLY SHIT

Apparently they've re-released First Utterance in a few different versions and formats, including at least one deluxe edition. Also there's that new album up above, and at least one live album and DVD.

I can only find live clips (not that they sound bad, of course)










HOLY FUCK

It's more of an EP. It's only like 25 minutes long.

Out of the Coma fucking rules though.

Still thought this band was well dead and gone...one who left an incredible relic, nonetheless. Don't know about how many original members are still in though, who's maybe died, etc.. The new shit's really, really good. Wish I had more dough to spare, cuz I'd grab all this new stuff if I could. Especially sucks I missed the limited-to-300 copies First Utterance vinyl re-release that came with a bonus 10" of the Diana EP.

Not quite. Almost 40 minutes.

Side One

1. Out of the Coma(8.35)

2. The Sacrifice (8.39)

3. The Reurn (6.22)


Side Two

The Malgaard Suite (15.49)

[edit]: my mistake. Just read the description and see that the B-Side track "Malgaard Suite" is a live recording of an old song from around the time of the First Utterance era.

That was some interesting stuff. I can't remember ever even hearing about this band before, to be honest. I liked it, but I'm probably not going to go track down all of their stuff or anything.

Big mistake. This new stuff is good, but their 1971 album First Utterance is completely mindblowing and still centuries ahead of its time.

I don't count the Malgaard suite. It's a live demo recorded in 73. The only new material is the first three tracks.

Also, it's the complete original line up except for one guy.

And Jeff, "First Utterance" is one of the best albums ever made. Get on it.

I knew they did that boat-tour with Opeth a few years ago and I'd heard they'd be touring some more, but the new material was news to me. Sounds good.
