Really, Really Long Songs

After listening to this:


I have become interested in what other bands have attempted something similar (in terms of song longevity). Outside of Catch 33 I'm pretty much clueless.

Opeth's "My Arms Your Hearse" kinda blends together into an epic, as with Meshuggah's "Catch 33"

Also check you Godspeed You! Black Emperor. They have some really long songs.

"Thanjks" - Shono

start listening to funeral doom metal :P
There's definitely some really long songs there.
Also, there's plenty of 2+ hour long trance mixes i have

I like my guitar tone like I like my women, perfect rounded bottom end, cut in the mid section, heavy on the top end, and super tight.

Omnium - Atmospheric/Trance/Ambient

Only slight differences with Dopesmoker (the watered down version as it were...)

Gingerbread Man (The Residents album) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I consider this to be like Catch 33 (one long track broken into pieces).

In April 2010 the trio of Kiol Xeno (Bass) Rob Prescott (Drums) and Cory Estouteville (Guitar, Keyboard recorded a 79 minute instrumental titled Mind Control Experiment.

(79:50, divided on disc into two 30 minute tracks, and a third piece at 19:50)

639 years, on an instrument with infinite sustain and near-infinite lifespan. We're currently 10 years in, and the next chord change will occur in about two months.

Yep, Sleep pretty much takes the cake, with "Dopesmoker", IMO. Earache Records (their label when they wrote the song back in 1995) wouldn't release it, or the shortened version of it ("Jerusalem"), and dropped them. Prog rockers like Yes ("Tales of Topogrpahic Oceans" is a double album record - each album side is one song), also come to mind, for uber long songs.

The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues from BTBAM is pretty much the longest song I've listened to which clocks in at about 30 minutes.

Of course. I just never really considered it as "one song" really.

Just from glancing at my own library:

Fu....susha - The Wisdom Prepared 1:15:02
Fant˘mas - Delýrium C˛rdia - 1:14:17
Tribes of Neurot - Cairn - 1:13:57
Corrupted - El mundo - 1:13:55
Corrupted - El mundo frio - 1:11:39
Erik Satie - Vexations - 1:09:40
Merzbow & Pan Sonic - V 1:08:17
The Necks - Silverwater 1:07:15
Boris - Absolutego 1:05:35
Boredoms - GO!!!!! 1:04:19
William Basinski - D|P 1.1 1:03:33
Sleep - Dopesmoker 1:03:31

Do I need to go on? I have quite a few more before it gets down to an hour.

And that's not counting 'songs' that are a split into multiple tracks.

On which note:

Forty minutes of largely compelling prog-death. Proof that Dan Swan÷ is god.

I think Crimson II is a lot better than Crimson, but I can't find a link that mashes the whole thing together.
