    Уорд Уайт Fuck Yeah

  • Sean Sky

    Read this as White Wizzard at a glance and nearly shat my pants

    • Don’t say that name!

      • White Wizzard… the new Voldemort.

      • Eli Valcik

        Haha haha, you have no power here gandalf the grey!

    • GardensTale

      Oh shit I made nearly the same comment on Facebook

    • Eli Valcik

      Lol, just left that same comment

    • Ta2dlam

      Now I can’t stop seeing it! Damnit!

  • Kronos

    Hah! The cover art! THAT’S A FUCKING DOG SKULL.

  • Maksym Nikitin

    More metal from the homeland

  • Eli Valcik

    Thought is said “White Wizzard” when I first glanced at it.

  • Jeff Manteiga

    I guess you could say they learned to work…the saxophone. They play just what they feel.

    • That makes sense, great synopsis.

      • Jeff Manteiga

        Haha I was quoting a Steely Dan song because I saw the reference. Will give this a listen, nice write-up!

  • Diego Molero

    I wasn’t expecting to like this one. But I already listened to all of the 3 tracks available and like it quite a lot. Really like the vocals. And the fact that this is a 40 minutes is even better. Looking forward to the whole thing.

    Great review, Madam.

    You’re a fan of deviant art? May i ask why? I’ve seen how they can take something as inoffensive as say Scooby Doo, and turn it into something that could scar children, and me.. So I don’t trust that website for shit.

    • I guess it’s the same with the internet as a whole there will always be offensive material out there for people to find. I’ve been following DeviantArt for probably going on 6/7 years now.
      Setting aside the offensive stuff (and granted there are offensive interpretations for sure), by the same token there are some truly amazing pieces of digital artwork for purchase, and similarly modified photos also.

      • Sean Sky

        I’m pretty unaffected by that stuff these days. Between browsing 4chan for years and seeing stuff reposted from liveleak all the time… some furry porn from Deviant Art is like *yawn*.

      • Zach Ward

        Just from what I’ve seen on most topics there seems to be just far more terribly disgusting pictures than ones of actual quality. It seems like you have to endure a ton of shit to get some good stuff. But you’re far more experienced with the site than I am, so I don’t know for sure if it’s all like that. And its not like I get offended easily, I’m rarely offended it’s just that the site seems to have a habit of turning every topic imaginable into porn, and it gets old pretty fast.

      • AgonMcDuck

        To add, some of my favorite cover artists are on deviantART. I found Rainer Kalwitz (deviantID: rainerkalwitz) on there and saw the art for Shadow Galley’s Room V and Tyranny, and Millenium’s Hourglass, and SQUEALED.

        There is a lot of trash on dA, but if you know which artists to follow, the site is immensely rewarding. Admittedly, I go there these days mostly for Pokémon fanart (clean, mind you) and generally cute pictures. But yeah.

    • Nukenado

      DeviantArt is like the internet in general:
      You’ll always see porn. Honestly porn isn’t even the worst, BADLY DRAWN porn is the stuff that you want to avoid.
      But get past that, and there are good things to be found there. Use “Popular All Time” and the blocking stuff wisely, and you can find nice things.

  • jersey devil

    Never heard sax in post metal or black metal before. Unexpectedly good!

    • Diego Molero

      Then you haven’t heard Ihsahn, which you should correct as soon as posible.

      • Diego Thomsen

        Aenaon is the shit!

      • jersey devil

        awesome, thanks.

    • Wilhelm

      Some others include; Sigh, Sear Bliss, Ulver, Solefald, Pan.Thy.Monium/Karaboudjan, and Maudlin of the Well. I believe there was an experimental BM band from the 90’s that used it, I can’t recall the name right now.

      • jersey devil

        cool-will check them out too. I know of Sear Bliss but dont remember any sax. Ulver too-they have sax? The others not fa,iliar with yet. thanks.

    • lrn2swim

      Check out Dødheimsgard – A Umbra Omega too, my AOTY for 2015. Sooooo great.

  • rumour_control

    “…sonically applying brush elements, performing nebula manipulation or perhaps adding a little lens flare.” — brilliant description of a sublime suggestion.

  • WOW.
    At first glance this sounds like an unexpected contender for winning my May list.
    May in Poland looks now more like a fucking January (the shit outside is practically the same since… January), so monochromatic riffs spiced with some sax make perfect company.

  • DeadHead

    This was a nice surprise. Glad I found a new band to enjoy.

  • jolly cooperation

    Holy shit! This is top notch stuff from my home city. How come I haven’t heard of them?!

  • TheCurlyMetalhead

    Ihsahn like vibes 1 minute and Ulver/David Bowie Blackstar like vibes a minute later :O Knew this would be good! Thanks for discovering this to me

  • This is quite good.

  • Thatguy

    This is good.

    Love the cover art. Love the arty band photo. I’ll need to hear more to give my verdict on the sax.

  • Akerblogger

    Excellent review for a beautiful sounding album. Looking forward to indulging in its melancholy when it comes out.

  • I had this on my radar ever since I heard one of the tracks they released online…. this review convinces me further this is really good and now I’m actually considering to get the vinyl.

  • El_Cuervo

    Only just got this. Sounds tight as hell, I like it.

  • h_f_m

    Love it, amazing!

  • Really liking this!
