Taake- "Nattestid... "
Alright guys, feel free to skip over this if you don't want to hear some super cheesy stuff. I had a special moment with this album just now. To preface this, I've been having a hard time lately, and I've kind of felt like I've been at a "rock bottom" of sorts in all aspects of life, consequently resulting in an extended period of uninspiration when it comes to music, both as a listener and a composer. That being said, I took time out of my evening to listen to this album, and during the fourth movement at about four minutes in, where there is a dynamic break followed by lone drums for about two bars which leads back into the main riff, I felt like I saw Black Metal as a whole flash before my eyes; I saw Venom, Celtic Frost, Mayhem, Darkthrone. It was a moment of true inspiration which came directly from the great melodies of Hoest, and it made me feel more empowered than I have in a long time. Time to get back to pounding out riffs! Anyway, cheers everyone. Hope you all are doing well.
