Which should I try next - Universal or Epic?
I'd say Epic.
Universal is the only Borknagar album I'd recommend not listening to.
^ you two live in a sad, sad world.
Wtf!! Guys, really?? I would say Black Swan, Epic has some hilights, as does Universal. Personally I prefer Universal (the fact that Lars and Simen have their own tracks on Unviersal also helps to push it above Epic for me).
Well I went with Epic since no one seemed to have any objections to it. I like Empiricism considerably more, but it's only been a few days. Epic definitely has its moments though.
I already have Simen's track from Universal (and have listened to it many many times).
:Spin: Wow. This is some great stuff here. I've been listening to Vitets Vidd I Verdi on myspace as well. That is one weird weird song. I mean that in a good way.
I'd just like to say that I'm very very glad I came here.
Solefald is just too good. I think Arcturus and Solefald are two really strange and amazing bands that have some of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard.
Epic is the sort of album that gets better over time, there is so much going on that even after a hundred listens, you will probably still pick up on things you hadn't noticed before. I personally feel like epic took more listens to really appreciate than any other Bork album, but is probably the album I have listened to the most.
I.C.S. Vortex solo album title revealed. It's "Storm Seeker" so...await the coming storm!!!
omgomgomg how cool is that! very promising title!
Thnx for the wonderful news Tabletwister!
does Vortex play Magic the Gathering by any chance? i couldn't help but think of the card, sorry...
I've actually been noticing that with Empiricism - each time I listen, I hear something new. I tend to take my time with albums and have been listening to Empiricism a lot. Epic is starting to grow on me, but doesn't seem to have the same magic throughout the whole album. I do love Quintessence (the song) however. Actually the last 3 tracks of Epic have really hit me.
While ordering Christmas gifts, I got a few presents for myself and now I have everything except for Empiricism which is on back order (and the Garm albums).
Thanks!! I am so looking forward to this album.
Epic comes across with a very cloudy and dark feeling but wrapped in "happier melodies". grows even more than excellent Empiricism, I like Epic better. So much (not-too-well-)hidden beauty on that album.
His son is named Storm...
I've just posted a statement from Simen conserning his new solo album. You can read all about it here
Check his live band members... Really great news Mr. Jens F. Ryland!
fan-fckin-tastic!! i was already wondering about the style of this album... but this "Brewed in a dirty metal pot, ingredients included are Stoner Rock mashed with BM, 70's prog spiked Pagan and alternative roots fried Norwegian style" sounds very promising! I guess i already love the track called Odin's Tree! Epic!
HAHAHHAHA! I still own a copy of this.
Wow. I can't wait to hear the album. Hmm, can we start a petition to bring this band to the States?
