    Just wanted to know whether there are any other fans (apart from myself) of drone. And by that i mean bands like Sunn O))), Earth, Hyatari, Khanate...etc (the southern lord group).

    Anyone else knows/likes them?

    Weeeee!!!! Somebody actually heard of any of those bands. A good way to get into them is this song.

    Another one here

    I'm listening to them now and thats what gives me the patience to write/find all this. :grin: Oh yeah! And listen to it in very high volumes. (its best that way). [/hyper]

    Just download the links that i gave in the last post. It needs a very open mind though. Its got no rythm nor does it have any melody. Its all about the atmosphere. (which kicks ass).

    Apparently, they also have the best song title ever : ""FWTBT: (I dream of Lars Ulrich being thrown the bus window instead of my master Mystikall Kliff Burton) "

    Lol, you had made me listen to this some time back, I still maintain, its not music. Next thing someone will record a cow mooing, loop it and superimpose the sound of somebody pissing on it and make an album out of it.
    This is cool for one listen, but only one listen. And thanks, but for you I would have prolly never heard this.

    ^^actually yea he has a point...the music is awesome but i dont think imma gonna be llistening to this stuff day in and day out. its not meant for that. it does get you stirring but eh...yea its not something you can keep listening to.



    but i still thnk you for intro-ing it to me..i had no idea these guys existed.

    No, that wasnt this stuff. That was a completely different thing called Zo├Ąt Aon.
    And about the music: It depends where you draw the border between music and noise. I dont see music as being a bunch of riffs and solos grouped together to form songs, grouped together to form albums. I see it as being a feeling. This is more like soundscape building. But again, i said that this needs an open mind so meh.

    ^i agree with you...but at the same time certain kind of feelings call for certain music. I just dont see myslf listening to this stuff all the time. you know? Maybe you connect to it in a different way...and thats cool.

    Well you cant listen to the same album 5 times in a row, but you can listen to it once everyday. (atleast i do :p: )

    And there are a lot of things to be explored in this genre, and a lot f new things are coming up. I find it very interesting.

    Then good for you, and anytime you find something that you think i might like, you know where to find me and gimme a buzz, aite? ;)

    Agreed. I have the same belief too. I liked it, its cool to hear, but I CANNOT and WILL NOT listen to it 10 or 20 times again. Its like watching an AC Milan - Inter Milan football match again and again (ok, not the best analogy). The point is , there is no hook. And hence, it simply becomes boring after a few listens.
