    Is there anything else to IF's purely instrumental songs like Wayfearer, Whoracle, Man Made God, etc. other than their being pure kickass? Has anybody ever heard anything about the inspiration behind these songs?

    basically, I think they're just a place for riffs that didn't fit into the other songs...

    I can't say I've heard anything about the inspiration behind their instrumentals, but I assume it's because of the band's love for their instruments.

    That seems to the most logical answer.

    Veenox, I would agree. I just think it would be pretty cool to find out from the band (if not on the forum) that there was a deeper meaning to any of the songs. Weareinflames also brought up a point, just great sections that didn't fit into any songs. I wish more bands would take that approach and not just cut a great riff because it didn't fit on an album or had no lyrics.

    You obviously haven't heard Man Made God.

    Dialogue With The Stars doesn't even come close to Man Made God.

    well since the thread completely lost its direction, i guess i'll also put in my 2 cents. man made god is in my opinion their "best" instrumental but there is something so spiritual about Whoracle that i could listen to it on repeat for an hour

    man made god has the single best guitar riff the band has done (arguably...)

    Best guitar bit? I dunno...
    Guitar intro on Stand Ablaze
    Riff to Behind Space
    Melody on Artifacts of the Black Rain
    I almost kept going, but I realized the list would be about a page long...

    It sounds like Iron Maiden's "The Pilgrim" played backwards, except better.
