    Streaming it now. “Earth” is definitely a 180 from what came before. Suddenly we’re in Sunn O))) territory. Wasn’t expecting this based on the first half. Since you mentioned Avatar, I feel something similar happens at the end of Hail the Apocalypse — nothing prepared me for “Tower”, which is just such a beautiful song. There, I’ve said it – “beautiful”. Love it when a band jolts you like that.

    • I havn’t followed Sunn O))) too closely but based on your comment I’m heading back to give them some more attention.

      A good jolt, nicely delivered can end up a big win for me too. Sometimes it just takes you a bit to get your head around it though… Waitain’s Ride On was one of those too.

    the band name deserves some pretzel め

    There’s touches of Burst and Solefald in there too.

    Much as I really enjoyed their first two albums, this one really steps heavy on the strangeness… and I like that a lot.

    • It’s a Caina sized step in my mind. I’ll definitely check out Burst, thanks for the recommendation!

        No problem. “Origo” is one of my favourite albums of all time!

        • I’ll start there then :)

            Lazarus Bird after Origo. About Solefald, does anyone of the AMG-personell have an opinion about Kosmopolis Sud?

    These guys are so good live! I hope they come to the U.S. some day.
