I have nothing to really base it off of, as I have never heard the original.
The rest of the album is OK. Can't say that I love it, but I do not outright hate it. The production, of course, is top notch. Far better than their previous releases. Also, the tempo has been slowed down a tad too, which I like. As far as Black Metal goes it's a decent offering.
Darkness comes through audibly far better in this manner, as Tom proved with most of his work, and recently Satyricon's transformation as well.
I'm not much for lightspeed banging and screaming which was the cornerstone of not just 1349's earlier offerings, but most of the genre, and the change on display with this album is a welcome one. For me at least that is. I'm sure the BM purists will be all up in arms about it like they were with Satyricon.

As Rush so eloquently stated : "Conform or be cast out."

And just in case any one misses it on the ZT thread too: there's a contribution from Tom which accompanies the 1349 feature in which he talks about their new album, amongst other things Smile

Calum should consider offering Tom a job at ZT, he is writing almost bimonthly for them Wink

FWIW: The consensus over at the Metal Archives board is that the album is a disappointment. Apparently, many consider it too ambient. In addition, it drew comparisons to the "Black Album" because it represents a marked change in style.

I have not yet heard it, so I have nothing of my own to contribute.

I'm right down the middle on it. Half the album I really like, the other is just kind of .... "meh" to me. I try really hard to never hit the next button on the player while listening to an album, but I find myself doing so at least 3x per sitting.

I finally had a chance to listen to the whole thing a couple of nights ago, and I actually enjoyed it. Is it an absolute favorite of mine? Not sure yet. I will have to give it a few more listens, but the fact that I want to give it a few more listens says something to me.

I can certainly see why it would have alienated some of their fanbase. But, I can also see why the band decided to branch out - it was needed. I will never be against experimentation, so I'm glad they took a chance and decided not to only do an album primarily of blindingly fast riffs. I agree with D - the production is much, much better than their previous releases.

Well with Tom co-producing the album, it should have great prospects for us with the upcoming Triptykon album...

The album got place 61 out of 61 releases in the German Rock Hard magazine soundcheck, though, place 29 out of 79 in German Legacy zine soundcheck.

=> Quite a lot of split opinions already. I try to fetch the 2-LP which seems already available.

I'm listening to the samples on the e-card now.

"Invocation" is basically a cover of "Human," isn't it...

Shaking my head,

So, I finally got around to buying this and am about halfway through it.

Is it just me, or is their a fair amount of clipping or whatever?

So, I listened to the CD in my car and I think the problem was with the crappy computer speakers.

It is an interesting turn for 1349. I can understand why a lot of fans are pissed off. There are still some trademark riffs, but they are slowed down. And the ambient pieces are something new, for them. It is unclear to me what or how they contribute to the album. I'll probably be reaching for Hellfire more often, I suspect.

I will undoubtedly go see them, if they come through again. They were one of the highlights of the Scion Rock Fest, this year.

Tom:

I don't know if you already know, but the album will be released in Brazil through Somber Music.

The release is sheduled to be out still this month.

I think you would like to know.

On the magazines adverts we can read "Production and appearance of Tom G. Fischer (Celtic Frost)".

Which is a blatant lie. I did not produce this album.

Thank you for the information, though.

You're welcome Tom!

Perhaps it is lack of information of the Brazilian label or sadly a way to make money promoting the album using your name.

Anyway, I'll buy a copy when it is released and I'll keep your informed.
