My first session of fully listening to Pale Communion:
I only listened to three tracks beforehand (Cusp, Eternal Rains, Goblin) and I decided to wait until I had my physical copy to listen through the whole thing, man was it a long wait.
But I’m glad I did wait because it’s fucking awesome. Those drums man.. they sound stellar. The bass drum sounds meaty coming through these speakers; a quality I always appreciate when it’s present in an album. Production overall is great for me. Love the mix of that major 70s prog influence with the 80s “Holy Diver-like production” Mikael has mentioned.
It’s a much more cohesive record in contrast to Heritage, it feels a lot more driven. As far as preference goes I’m afraid I can’t go picking & choosing between the two. Both, despite their similarities, have many differentiations that make it difficult to compare.
I’ll probably write a proper album review for this soon once I listen to it more and maybe find a few nit-picks but for now I’ll say it’s damn good. But really, what else could I have expected from a band I have loved so much? They never disappoint me.
Godfuckingdammit something always goes on in my fucking head to ruin everything
"Today I finally got into a band I wanted to really get into but never could before and now have a new favorite album and also the new album from one of my favorite bands of all time is out and I got my copy today and it’s great but..
*thinks about things*
*thinks about her*”
Fuck this I’m gonna blast that shit and go deaf ‘till I can’t hear myself think anymore
