    Well, I stand corrected. I was expecting a low-budget change in direction, but it's really a logical extension of the stuff they were doing with Rijin and VANITAS. I'm a bit ambivalent towards this as its sad to see the loss of the VK looks as they extend themselves towards a highly saturated math rock scene. But it's also pretty good. A change of band name would have served them well for this release.

    "We've changed.now it's your turn next" "Funny world" "What's up ?" ... Uh oh.
  3. Angelo is really killing it on their latest album. Also, LEDA :DDD

  4. Call me a n00b all you want, but when someone talks about 'mixing' making or breaking an album I am borderline retarded. I like what I like mmkay.

      Maybe I don't have the ear for it, but I've never picked up on the mixing process. Like when a band releases a remastered album, I don't usually notice the differences. Like what you're saying @nomemorial I'd probably need to pay close attention to a song/album/artist I really know and love and contrast that with the new/old versions to really grasp the changes.

      I guess I kind of get what you mean @Peace Heavy mk II regarding the Starwave stuff - Like kind of 'vacuumy'/'underwatery' right?

      @zombieparadiseexactly! And everything is the same level of loudness so there’s no depth to it. Or if the drumming sounds like banging on tin cans, as another example

      @Peace Heavy mk II Ah - I think I'm getting it now. SUICIDE ALI comes to mind as a specific example.

    I am honestly surprised WTD rates so low on this list. It was my first DEG album and figured it would be a favorite for more, as I figured a lot of western people got into them during that time (and the year's proceeding it's release). Maybe it hasn't aged all that well ? Anyway, it's difficult to pick a favorite as I tend to see them in eras: 'Baby' DEG = GAUZE -> KISOU 'Angsty Teenager DEG' = VULGAR -> MARROW OF A BONE 'Adult DEG' = UROBOROS -> ARCHE '2nd Childhood DEG' = The Insulated World My picks in these personal eras would be: KISOU, WTD, ARCHE, and I guess TIW by default lol Interesting to see such a split of opinions from all across the spectrum though. This is truly a band everyone can enjoy in one form or another.

    Call me crazy, but that support bassist looks a LOT like Ryu from Far East Dizain.

    I'm completely fine being in the remaining minority of a dying genre. I would rather find what I like on my own, then have 'them' figure it out for me. I think the whole 2006-2010 resurgence of the genre was more organic than any of the created/algorithmic/lackadaisical trends the post 2010's have given us. This was in part due to social feeds/search terms/content that we were using/sharing/discovering ourselves during this period. These days, the internet has basically been turned against its users, and through very powerful technology, we're shown a barrage of cookie cutter content that the vast majority are entertained by. It doesn't matter if it's good or not, or if some of us aren't interested in it, it's what works. Fortunately, VK is only cookie cutter enough for it's own genre, and too risky for mainstream audiences. If it takes VK following mainstream trends to get popular again, count me out. I am grateful for the old bands and existing bands that keep true to their style without selling out.

    Honestly, it took me like 2-3 years of listening to it on and off before I really began to appreciate the nuances between the songs. Before that, I thought all the songs sounded really bland and same-y.
