Winter is a Time of Reflection. And Suffering. And Satan.



Glyph is worse than some and better than others. He believes that life is just one damned thing after another, that only pop music can save us now, and that mercy is the mark of a great man (but he's just all right). Nothing he writes here should be taken as an indication that he knows anything about anything.

    Oooooh, that Tim Hecker is nice. So’s the Seidr, and the Vashti Bunyan (though I often have a kneejerk reaction against anything described as “folk”, much less “freak-folk”.) Not sure how I feel about the Coil, I am listening to it again now – I could do without that ending, I think.

    You know, there’s a record I wanted to put in my year-end list, but it just stuck out there like a sore thumb. I think it will go nicely in here though.

    What with the Satan and all.

      that’s pretty good. i think chelsea wolfe is kinda hit or miss – lady sings through muddy reverb is probably an entire genre at this point – but i do like her overall aesthetic even if i find the music is often lacking.Report

    I’ve been working my way through The Quietus’ year-end metal albums list, and I’ve found a couple of gems.

    One is these spacy, sludgy, Sleep-y guys (Slomatics):

    I think the Weedians found a wormhole. And I want to see that movie (Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet) post-haste.Report

    I was going to say that “How do I achieve the maximum amount of Satan?” was pretty much the goal of early childhood CCD classes as well, but that would violate the No Religion rule. So I’m just going to say that I’m working my way through these.Report
