    I've always found this one very sad, when you bear in mind the writer and singer would later go on to kill himself:

    Whilst I agree atmosphere is paramount in this kind of music, I still don't think artists should be able to get away with repetetive music...

    As for this metal stuff, it's just about the only genre of music I've never delved into... it's just one of those things that's never really appealed to me. On top of that, metal probably has the least critical acclaim out of any genre (to my knowledge). No offence intended...
    Usually lacking from critical acclaim because a majority of it is hidden away from most critics; it's only those who other actually going deep into the genre (with at least base level knowledge of it being a preference, in my eyes) that come away with subject matter to write stuff about.

    The amount of decent metal magazines is pretty dire, and even those who contain some decent bands don't go the depth down into the genre that they should IMHO. It's probably why there isn't much critical acclaim to it. On top of that, I'd imagine when most people think "metal" they think Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, etc (bands of old) and Avenged Sevenfold, Bullet For My Valentine (bands of new, both of which I dislike quite a lot, it must be said) and nothing else. They don't realise how many thousands of bands there are that are hidden away.

    It was too obviously trying to make me sad and so I wasn't (plus she looks like my cousin and sounds like Reese Witherspoon in Walk The Line which is enough to make anyone want to stop listening/watching due to confusion)

    It's the sneakier songs that are sadder, by people like New Order and Talking Heads and Tears For Fears, where they pretend to sound happy.

    The perfect example of this Nick Drake... There is that wonderfull dichotomy between solemn lyricism and uplifting guitar playing. This is a good example; although, I know there are some better examples of what I mean...

    It's me... please don't laugh... No, I don't even know how I found him.

    But, you MUST give him a listen. Not enough people realise just how talented he was. Also, read some biographical stuff on him; you'll understand his music on a deeper level if you do.

    Bit cliched, but Street Spirit by Radiohead.

    Also this quite incredible instrumental piece by Death. How to move one's soul with just an electric guitar and a tube amplifier.

    oh, and forever autumn from the War of the Worlds soundtrack, sung by Justin Hayward of the Moody Blues.

    I think at about 12 minutes a little drum bit kicks in, but from memory I think that's all the change in the song is. As I said, Slunce... isn't really the sort of music that Trist usually plays.

    Concerning Sneni, black metal as a whole tends to be a bit repetitive sometimes, but that's mainly because a lot of it is done for the atmosphere it creates (the repetition in DSBM characterises the monotony of life, etc).

    Edit: Funeral Doom as a whole is notorious for its' repetition:



    That's the first ten minutes of a 20:30 length song, which seems to be roughly the same sort of length of most of the pieces that Esoteric release (most clock in somewhere between 10 minutes and 25).

    Damn that song is boring...yet I've listened to it about 10 times on the basis of actually wanting to listen to the whole of filosofem start to finish regardless of how boring it gets.

    Haha, that was the second song that came to mind. Varg must've driven the prison wardens insane with that song :teehee:
