I only got this the other day and haven't digested it yet so time will tell if I agree
I've never listened to that. I've heard Ildjarn's Norse EP plenty of times and I'm tempted to say that is his greatest achievement. Are the other songs from Svartfråd EP just as good?
They're really good. The compilation also has some awesome tracks like "Eksistensens Jeger" that aren't on any other releases by him.
Yeah I assumed so. I find it hard to find an Ildjarn release I don't like. The Ildjarn is Dead compilation is awesome as well.
I own that, but I've only listened to it once. I should fix that.
I've listened to the one disc with most of the unreleased tracks (with Unknown Truths and Seven Harmonies) multiple times. But I feel the need to listen to Det Frysende Nordariket and Forest Poetry more often.
ildjarn must be a joke band because there's no way anyone could ever suck so hard without purposely trying to suck
I listened to some Ildjarn. What do you guys like in it? I get that it's raw and aggressive and hateful, but I didn't find it really enjoyably so. On the otherhand, I only listened once to a handful of tracks and I've been known to make abrupt 180s opinionwise, so help me out here.
Hippocampus's review on RYM for Forest Poetry says it better then I ever could.
I'm not too fond of "Sons of Satan" being the opening song of Welcome to Hell. To me, "Welcome to Hell" (the song) would serve as a much better opening track. Nothing against "Sons of Satan" really as it is a good song, but it just doesn't have the impact as I would like to start that classic album.
I think it's pretty amusing as an opener. It starts off with a giant formless clusterfuck of noise, which is a fitting calling card for a band like Venom.
I'm not familiar with the album and can't judge, but it sounds like he's saying "This album is just distorted noise and all the faggots will complain that there's no actual songwriting or music here but the true will be able to convince themselves it's good."
Just tell me what the best one is, then I'll buy whatever is cheapest.
The demo compilation. Det Frysende Nordariket
His stuff looks to be less expensive on ebay than I thought. Most of it is ridiculously expensive on amazon. Next time I order stuff from ebay I'll see about picking something up. Likely to be a while, though; I'm saving for an ENGL.
It's hard to take in from the two albums I have heard. There are some really cool moments, though, despite all the grime and grit in the music.
It has recently struck me that I prefer several Carcass worship bands to Carcass themselves... these include General Surgery, Necrony, and The County Medical Examiners. I understand Carcass' importance fine and well... I just can enjoy the other bands more.
If you consider Exhumed a Carcass-worship-band I'd think you might have a valid point on the basis of Anatomy Is Destiny alone. Other than that I don't agree
this post is sort of obnoxious since it opens with an emote and continues into a marathon of smilies, but that said I pretty much agree with it.
I hate Forest Poetry so I'm not motivated to get any more Ildjarn. The production is overly contrived to be painful to listen to, although I would tolerate it if there was any decent songwriting in there. Jangly tremolo riffs which all sound the same, drums nothing more than a metronome, that irritating farting bass sound, songs which starts randomly, go nowhere, and then finish randomly. Give me Transilvanian Hunger or Les Légions Noires any day.
I actually agree with this.
