ONE TWO ONE TWO ONE TWO
Anyway, its pic related
Vomir - Claustration
It's not necessarily abrasive or hard to listen to, it's just really hard to listen to the entire album considering every track sounds the same and every second sounds like the last...it's a fucking long, dull album.
Cromagnon - Orgasm
The first song is truly a masterpiece, it sounds like straight up black metal and this shit it from 1969:
just skip past the stupid intro ;(
but anyways, the entire rest of the album is grunting, screaming, various noises, anyone who claims to enjoy this album is pretentious and full of shit.
The most inaccessible album ever created, nobody on earth is able to listen to it entirely.
THIS SHIT RIGHT HERE
no. is really hard for me, i cant even listen bachs works for more than 3 minutes.
no, and theres so many notes in classical. how is that comparable to pop?
thats not music.
but they just repeat like the same three notes for minutes and they are so catchy. is not the same in classical music where is just so complex and saturate with notes. everybody can tell that.
is a music imageboard -_-'
I get the ideas of "art" and "making a statement" behind most noise, but honestly, why the fuck would someone waste their time with this album? Especially when there's decent noise out there, that isn't just a fucking wall of the same pitch of static for 4 hours.
That's not THAT accessible. Grindcore fans would like it.
This, on the other hand, has been 2deep4me for like two years now.
It's in my top 5 for sure. It's just incredibly accomplished, it's so dense and multi-layered, with so much detail to unpack. Tom folded an incredible number of things into this, it really rewards repeated listening. It's also viscerally quite gripping, not just a mental mindfuck.
Abrasiveness/loudness plateaus once you get to harsh noise/power electronics/death industrial. Venereology by Merzbow is my reference point for "harshest":
But you can probably find tons of similar albums that are about as harsh. It's easy to get that loud, and impossible to get significantly louder.
Inaccessibility is a completely different story — and it's a lot more subjective. Throbbing Gristle and NON sound good to me, but a lot of opera works just stress me out. I have trouble with a lot of contemporary composers, like Xenakis. Noise that features not crushing slabs of sound is okay, but irregular outbursts of noise is just very unpleasant to listen to for me, it's pretty much the equivalent of jump scares in movies or video games. Free jazz is kinda hard to get into, though I think I'm slowly beginning to "get it", I still don't enjoy it that much.
I would also recommend Diamanda Galás if you're looking for harsh/disturbing/inaccessible music.
>irregular outbursts of noise is just very unpleasant to listen to for me
That's why I mentioned Runzelstirn & Gurgelstock earlier. Way more challenging than something like Merzbow or HNW.
I agree with you on those points, and it's not like I thought it was trash, but the recording quality could've been much higher, and I think it would've served it's detailed lyrics more by using less distortion on them
I feel like I'm sniffing a dusty carpet, this shit is too much for me
Hi-fi production would not have served it well, that was not the intent. You can read the lyrics if you want to try to parse them, I don't think sacrificing artistic approach for lyric clarity in the vocals is a good idea.
Autistic motherfuckers who couldn't play instruments made an album devoted to bread
>implying MMM is abrasive
THANK YOU SO MUCH
I've been trying to remember, real hard, what the name of the dude who did field recordings of fucking a dead body's name was. I sincerely thank you. The minute I read Blind Date (in this thread..) it clicked. thank you!!
that's a great, beautiful album. half japanese is the shit. it's weirder and noisier and even more amateurish that their later output, but it's still great and i don't think it's really inaccesible.
I mean, I got what it was going for right away, so it wasn't really inaccessible, but it's still kind of a nauseating listen.
Probably shouldn't have been drunk the first time through. Almost threw up towards the end.
>Add distortion to sounds that are in no way abrasive
>wow so abrasive
>The first song is truly a masterpiece, it sounds like straight up black metal
Is black metal the current "I don't know what the fuck this song is so I'll call it that" memegenre?
It would make sense in an art gallery. Certainly not as a retail production, though.
To give some coherence to it, scroll about halfway done through this interview:
Probably Pulse Demon or anything by Merzbow. I've tried, bros. My body just can't handle it.
