I wouldn't think the production quality should be the determined judgement in their general creativity. I personally enjoy Metallica myself, even the sound that they had embodied within the last record. I dare not say it tops any of their early releases; but bear in mind that was a time when James' voice wasn't damaged.

This is an interesting album. I discovered it through TJ Elite's Last.fm stream and I must speak on this new found experience of sipping coffee and enjoying black metal.. definitely an enigma I have never explored or thought of doing ever before. To speak on this album, it sort of reminds me of an off breed mix of Cult of Luna, Black Dahlia Murder, and perhaps even a bit of Deafheaven. However this group takes on a whole sound that I simply despise comparing it to the aforementioned or any other band. It speaks a poetry that I find very few black metal groups do. It's in your face, but it allows you to breath and drift through the several melodies, harmonies, and powerful rhythms. It's headbanging material, and the spoken lyrics and clean folk additions are even more interesting and add to the excitement. I'm loving it.

They are such a special band, the Opeth of Black Metal perhaps. It's a shame that the extreme vocals keep the general public away. For inquiring minds, both bands incorporate "clean" or traditionally sung vocals mixed with extreme vocals. The music, playing, etc. are of a very high quality.

I have only listened to the album once myself, and that was on my computer with Genelec's smallish 6010A active loudspeakers, but you inspired me to give it its second time in the spotlight – this time on my 803 Diamonds. Yes, it is an interesting combination of black and progressive metal. Black metal is a branch of metal I've only been acquainted with for a relatively short time in comparison to some other forms of metal, but it is a style I'm very fond of, even if only a small portion of black metal does anything for me. A lot of it feels very bland, but those who manage to stand out in a positive way have offered me a lot to nurture.

 


 

Having learned to play the piece myself recently, I've been very interested in listening to other people's takes on Arvo Pärt's Für Alina over the past week. Alexander Malter's interpretations on the ECM disc Alina, however, still stand as my go-to performances. I feel he understands the music and the composer's intentions better than others. He takes creative freedom even beyond that which is already given in the score, but Pärt himself has said that it isn't really the tune that matters so much and these two 11-minute excerpts are ones he himself selected from a several-hour performance he himself attended, and so these variation arcs are very much sanctioned by him. I continue to be fascinated by this piece and the more I play it the more evident it is how much about playing it is about self-reflection and a search for something, rather than a series of notes that sound good together. Pärt manages to draw so much from so little it is seldom others have managed to create something so pure that goes well beyond what can be perceived on the surface.
