This is their vocalist. The Curator.



That, is a clock on his head.

He thought that I was a wanker.

No comment.

I didn't go and see them, but they toured up here not long ago. Everyone I've talked to is in love with them and I ended up getting into an argument with "The Curator" because I thought an interview he did sounded a bit wanky.
I stated about 12 times that this was by no means a bad thing as I can't imagine an interview with a guy wearing a clock on his head could be anything BUT wanky.

Still, it's gotten to the stage where all I read when he posts is "we make noise, we make noise, I wear a clock, we make noise"

I've overlooked Porfanatica's (paricularly Paul Ledney) douchebaggery for great music so I think I can overlook the Curator's. How did you meet him, by the way? Or was it over the internet?

Intarwebz.
In a Ne Obliviscaris thread on another forum.
Someone said that NeO had a pretentious myspace description (oh the horror ) and I said "It's amazing how when NeO have something slightly pretentious, everyone loathes them and as soon as some guy with a clock on his head gives an interview that makes him sound like he's a prophet of the apocalypse, he's some sort of mystical god."
And it turned out he was a member of the forum.
Good times, good times.

I like the fact that the members play the part and play the part well. The Curator does this even if it means coming off as a pretentious prophet of doom.

Honestly I even love their costumes, and I HATE costumes.

Considering Ne Obliviscaris are almost as pretentious as Opeth ( ) I don't think it was unfounded at all.

The guitarist's costumes are awesome. Love the noose. But come on... a clock?
He used to wear a giant hat that came down to his shoulders.

Usually I like to think I have a long witty retort to combat some ignorant shit on these forums, but... I just can't this time. What you said is just silly.

Plain silly.

Yeah, that's the one on their band photo on MA, I actually hadn't even seen the clock until you posted the picture of him.

EDIT: I still think the clock actually looks pretty cool though, it just adds to the weirdness of the band.

The clock works just as well as his awesome hat.

Just try and forget that their is a a normal everyday person behind that character.

Imagine if these guys looked just like the early Florida Death Metal bands (shorts, tank tops, flip flops, etc.).

What I tried to get across was that I thought the pretentiousness WORKED in the interview, it helped keep the image alive and all that. I've got no problem with the costumes, it's a stage show, whatever.

All I was trying to get across was the double standards. NeO are wankers because they have a pretentious myspace, but Portal have all these pretentious interviews, they wear costumes and they make "atmospheric death metal", but no, that's not wanky at all...


For the record? Their music is boring.
