It's a long one...

FYI, I'm not on this album. I joined like a week after they finished recording it.

You're in this band? Song was average. Too long.

Haha, you're going to hate this album if you think this song was too long. The last song is 25 minutes long.

yeah for doom song to be that long it's gotta be pretty god damn good. Like Metridium Fields. But that's almost more of a jazz song anyway.

Also I'm glad you're not on the recording because I thought the drummer was seriously overdrumming

It's Austin. That's kind of his thing. I like it, but I can see why people wouldn't.

Yeah I know some drummers that like to do that. They're pretty irritating typically, but I guess it works for some things. Me not really digging this type of thing doesn't really help a whole lot I don't think.

I like the song, but I think I preferred the production on For Winter's Fire, to be honest. It had that "snow covered starry night" type of sense of space and vastness. I think that on this track at least, the fuzzyness and intensity make for a "smaller" soundscape. Might be the compression, though.

Really looking forward to it, either way.

I noticed that about this stream. Rest assured, the final master sounds huge. Much bigger than For Winter Fire, IMO.

I dig that one more than the first tune. Simply because I'm a powderpuff and like my music softer. Pretty nice little groove and spacy guitars.

And now that the heavier guitars and vocals have kicked in, it reminds me of Depresy's atmosphere a bit. Which is a good thing.


You dudes should make ┼pl Seidr shirts.

Just got the 2CD in the mail (with a bonus patch for pre-ordering). I like it a lot but I like Winter Fire more. But yeah it's seriously good. Good job Kerr even though you weren't on it. Already ready for more.

Got the CD a few days ago too. At first I was kind of underwhelmed. I feel they've kinda lost the "crushing doom" aspect of FWF in favor of a more post-rocky kind of atmosphere-centred sound. Like the riffs are heavy and all, but the music is layered in such a way that it's not as crushing.

However, after spinning it again, and again, and again. I've realized that holy shit I really like it. Sweltering 2 and Pillars of Creation are standouts so far. But it did take some getting used to sound-wise.

Also, you've got big ass, Goofy-sized, shoes to fill in the drummer's seat. Austin really drummed the fuck out of this album (also something that took getting used to compared to FWF, but in the end I really dig it).
