alex weber is the bassist of exist
Yeah, typo on my part. My bad.
EDIT - sorry reposted the play through
I actually like the album, it was like a weird fusion of Autotheism and Akeldama and Porcupine Tree. I guess I'm not disappointed because Planetary Duality exists in a vacuum to me, kind of like Exoplanet does for contortionist. I also happen to like Keene's vocals.
It's growing on me, still definitely weird. Shake the disease reminds me of The Cure..
The only thing I don't like about the album is all of my favorite songs were released long before the album came out.
Yeah, Spiraling Void fucking slays, I think Blackstar does too. I also think they changed the mix on both of those since Blackstar especially sounds fuller than I remember. Instrumental Illness is pretty cool, reminds me of the Akeldama title track
We couldn't be more on the same page.
Depeche Mode was definitely influenced by The Cure.
I agree. I liked the singles but I am over them. The album is a pretty big disappointment for me.
Turns out shake the disease is actually just a depeche mode song.
I can't recall ever hearing that song from depeche mode, but the way it's sung on the new faceless album just connected those dots mentally....weird
I haven't listened to all of In Becoming A Ghost yet, but I mostly like it so far. The tech-death parts and some of the mellow progressive parts sound really good, but I don't like the happy sounding parts that come in here and there (especially on I am, I guess there was some on Shake The Disease too). They ruin the general dark mood, which is brilliant otherwise. Oh and I don't mind the mix being the way it is, it could be better but it's not really bothering me in any way, so I can't really complain.
Ok, just finished the album. I didn't really like The Terminal Breath, it felt very out of place. And the (Instru)mental Illness was a bit of unnecessary wanking too
I'm sure I'll be listening to this album a bit more though, because everything up until I Am was really good. Let's see if the happy sounding parts fit better after a few listens...
Listened to this about 20 times now probably. My favorite Faceless album. What can I say? I dig it.
Keene is the archetype of being the tortured artist. I think you can pick apart the technicality of it, as has been done a lot, but I think it represents exactly what he wanted it to and feels like a complete album to me. And thematically, it's a lot cooler than aliens.
It took a while for me to understand the purpose of this album myself. If you stop looking for continuity from PD, and look at the evolution of The Faceless over the past 10 years , this makes sense. Terminal Breath and I Am are my favorites.
