Kinda shocked at the solitude hate
So am I.
Its a fantastic song, but my least favorite from a collection of near-perfect songs.
solitude is maybe the most overplayed of all doom songs, that's the only explanation
imo the even numbered tracks are all on a slightly higher level than the odd numbered ones. Solitude is obviously excellent but for sheer epic-ness (obviously a lot of the appeal of the album) it's eclipsed by others.
I'm not really sure there is a lesser track and a superior track
I agree that 2, 4 and 6 are all of a slightly higher quality. I'll be surprised if A Sorcerer's Pledge doesn't win.
Crystal Ball was just really dull. Reminded me of another even more dull song I can't put my finger on.
But I also really liked From the 13th Sun and their other weird one Dactylis Glomerata Conglomerate metal Amalgate or whatever. So, like, take it with a grain of salt I guess.
Solitude is pretty much the most perfect doom metal song of all time so yeah.
dunno if i'd go that far but it's pretty incredible and far from being the worst (or rather, least great) song on here.
Its like nails on a chalkboard to me. Perhaps its the pity party lyrics or that its covered by every doom band.
Either way, ive never liked it
The hyper-dramatic delivery makes up for the lyrics. I've never listened to a cover of it, but I think it would be a much weaker song with anyone other than Langquist singing it.
Swallow the Sun
Oceans of Slumber
and those were found with a simple google search. I'm sure there are more
to be fair, im only familiar with the pale divine version
I didn't say the covers don't exist, but I would never listen to any of those bands. I assumed it was other doom metal bands covering them, not melodeath weakness.
the swallow the sun one is pretty solid if only to hear albert witchfinder singing it
Only Candlemass version is real.
Under the Oak
you voted for Black Stone Wielder.
...as the weakest song on the album. am i missing something or did you think we were voting for our favourites lol
favourites. why waste your time going backwards?!
