So this does not have an article here on MA because it almost certainly doesn't qualify as metal for the encyclopaedia's purposes. I was just curious to know what the rest of you thought of Sophia's post-Blood Stain Child project and its debut album, (unofficially) streamable here:http://html5.grooveshark.com/#!/album/t ... x/10002562
I bought it...and I love the paradoxical fuck out of it. It's so ridiculously eclectic that it's a wonder that it works, but some how, some way, it does. I've probably played more of its tracks more often than anything in recent memory, and for something that does not consistently stick to one end of the music spectrum, it flows well enough that it's scary.
I think my favourite chunk of this album (note that I am not picking a favourite song, but a chunk
) would have to be "Dream; Paralysis", "The Human Paradox", and "[Ne]: Mesis - The Kiss of Justice". Said chunk also just so happens to serve as a decent summary of the album for you folks who don't really care to partake in its entire runtime.
I will say that, having heard her sing here, I can especially agree with one aspect of her reminiscence of her time with BSC: it really was a damn shame how much they decided to autotune the fuck out of her on Epsilon
. She was great on that record, but here is where her voice is really free from the bullshit.
If the album were on MA, I'd probably review it and give it at least a 90%.
I believe it was Confucius who said "Life is merely a series of intervals in which one waits for the next Agalloch album."
