Wow, just listened to some of that Sonne Adam on YouTube. I hadn’t heard of it and wasn’t sure what to expect with that band name, but I didn’t expect the amazing blunt force pummeling I got. It’s really, really good.

This is why I love HTC. Thanks.

So he’s accused of being pretentious, and in defense of himself writes the most pretentious screed he can muster?

Aesthetica’s a good album. Not life-altering or transformative or whatever-the-fuck, but good. I like it a lot. Dude’s a massive knob though.

Sounds good. I usually don’t get too excited about this sort of plodding, rumbling stuff, but this song’s righteous. So heavy… Look forward to hearing the rest.

Sounds like they’ve shed more than just their black metal skin. After listening to this I skimmed through a bunch of the other songs on YouTube & it seems like they’ve just about dropped metal completely. It mostly sounds like some terrible collision of electronic music, atmospheric goth, and adult contemporary alternative or something. Yuck.
