Unbelievably ****ed up Death Metal from Australia. I have their new album, Outre', and it is one of the most horrifying albums I've ever heard. I definitely recommend this to anyone who loves weird atmospheric Death Metal.

Let me be the first to say....a tad overrated! Outre is great, I really love the Immolation/Beherit/demented noise mix, but Ive seen some horribly overblown reviews for this album.

All in all though, great band, I must get Seepia soon.

I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

0-0-0-13-0-0-0-0-13 or something like that alalalala but It;s so heavy and off time and awesome and you could not f**k anyone to it.

Yeah, I don't think it's the greatest or most horrifying album ever, but it is certainly a great and really ****ed up album.

Yeah, I checked this out after seeing it on the Decibel Top 40 Albums of 2007 back in January, and I loved it.

I haven't listened to it in a good long time, though.

Yeah, just something about this band gives you a really creepy feeling, not even just the music, from the album covers/band photos you can pretty much tell this is ****ed up.

Basically that but a lot darker and weirder...

EDIT: What I mean is this band has a really mysterious, uneasy feel about them.

Yeah, I just made that in Photoshop a few months ago, and I had an opening to use it.

I could take it back into Photoshop and dry and make it a bit darker, but I'm lazy at the moment.

EDIT: Linqua, I kinda get what you mean but you can't really listen to this type of music the same way you would most other music.

Portal's actually post-Cynic and they suck in my opinion.

The Aussie Portal is great, though.

The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.

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.

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.

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.
