a bit besides the point of pure metal discussing, but I would like to ask you gentlemen the following, out of curiosity;
A good friend of mine loves death metal, but to me it sounds like a random cascade of noise with garbled screaming, now I offered him to listen to Jon leif's Hekla
a while ago, and he said that it was random banging?
Of course, atonal music from the 60ies and death metal are different things entirely, but I did think at the time he'd quite like it (which he really didn't, he said it was too much "random noise")
What do you think of the piece? the real fun only starts at about 5:40 minutes into the piece, but the buildup is also great.
I find it to be quite a lovely piece at what it tries to depict (which it does really well, I can basicly hear Surtr roaring and yingling his chains by the end of the piece), and it doens't at all sound random to me (but I often listen to stuff like this
so, what do you think of it?
I listen to almost kind of music and to be honest also not for being rude (since i don't quite familiar with his works) I can't enjoyed Jon leif's stuff that you posted. the think is less harmonic and yeah I've to agreed with your friend but least I'm quite enjoyed the beginning part of the song before 4.50 minutes.
. the point is, we can't impose someone's fondness for something that we like. cheers! :)
