I have no words to say how much this song is beautiful and I need to write it to someone who will read it

Hello everyone !

I first apologize for my english, as a french student, I might do some mistakes. I'm new on this forum and I've created my account just to share with you guys the most incredible metal song I've came accross since I'm born.

I am soon 20 years old, and I've been familiar with metal my whole life. When I was very young, I was already headbanging on some Jimmy Hendrix and jumping everywhere with NOFX. I've then discovered more and more styles, bands, and I am now a huge fan of Gojira. I am also a fan of bands like Bullet For My Valentine, or System Of A Down.

Some months ago, I discovered a song by accident, watching a stream on Twitch, of a guy playing a game called Osu. (it's a rythm game where you click circles)

When I first listened to this song, I liked it and I decided to listen to it on youtube.

The full name is "Painters of the Tempest (Part II): Triptych Lux" by the band "Ne Obliviscaris" and it is 16min34 long.

I've listened it once, twice, etc... And I've fallen inlove instantly of this song. Despite its length, it always seems too short.

Ne Obliviscaris are a six-piece Australian progressive metal band from Melbourne. There are in the band : 1 Singer,  1 Violinist, 2 guitarists, 1 drummer and 1 bassist.

Painters of the Tempest is devided in 3 parts. The first part is like an Intro, the second part (the one I am talking about) is the "core" and the third part is like an outro. But the second part is itself devided in 3 Movements.

- 1st movement : Creator (7min20 long)

- 2nd movement : Cynosure (3min40 long)

- 3rd movement : Curator (5min34 long)

The first movement is the hardest, it screams a lot, the music is very aggressive and not enjoyable by everyone. I personnally like it but what I prefer is the second and third movement. The second movement is very calm and progressively goes hard again. The final and last movement is the most beautiful one.

While writing this topic, I realize that I have so much to say on thsi song but I don't know where to start, and It is hard for me to explain what the song is made off, I just can say that the title of the music is really well chosen, this song is like a Tempest. It flows like water, sometimes hard, sometimes calm.

This music is a true masterpiece, this is my most listened song on Spotify this year, and I've discovered other songs by Ne Obliviscaris that are also awesome.

I am happy to say that Painters Of The Tempest is my favorite metal song of all time. But what would make me extremely happy is that you guys listen to it (or a part of it) so we could discuss about it, or share some new songs, or idk... I am so inlove of this song that I wanted to let everyone around me hear it but nobody understands...

I am sorry for this poorly written topic, this is my last hope, I just want to talk about something I truly love to people who care about music, and about metal.


Thank you for reading this topic, take care and don't hesitate to talk to me !

Kudos to you for doing a writeup in a foreign language, and welcome to the forum. Music appreciation is highly subjective. I don't think there's anything wrong with you loving this song so much. I can't stand it. I tried pretty hard to like this band when I first came across them, because I like some stuff that isn't too far off from their sound, but they're not for me. I have other songs I feel just as strongly about that I'm sure other people hate, too... That's just how it goes!

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.

      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!

    • Full length number 19 from overkill certainly makes a splash in the energy stakes, I mean there's some modern thrash bands that are a good two decades younger than Overkill who can only hope to achieve the levels of spunk that New Jersey's finest produce here.  That in itself is an achievement, for a band of Overkill's stature and reputation to be able to still sound relevant four decades into their career is no mean feat.  Even in the albums weaker moments it never gets redundant and the energy levels remain high.  There's a real sense of a band in a state of some renewed vigour, helped in no small part by the addition of Jason Bittner on drums.  The former Flotsam & Jetsam skinsman is nothing short of superb throughout "The Wings of War" and seems to have squeezed a little extra out of the rest of his peers.

      The album kicks of with a great build to opening track "Last Man Standing" and for the first 4 tracks of the album the Overkill crew stomp, bash and groove their way to a solid level of consistency.  The lead work is of particular note and Blitz sounds as sneery and scathing as ever.  The album is well produced and mixed too with all parts of the thrash machine audible as the five piece hammer away at your skull with the usual blend of chugging riffs and infectious anthems.  

      There are weak moments as mentioned but they are more a victim of how good the strong tracks are.  In it's own right "Distortion" is a solid enough - if not slightly varied a journey from the last offering - but it just doesn't stand up well against a "Bat Shit Crazy" or a "Head of a Pin".  As the album draws to a close you get the increasing impression that the last few tracks are rescued really by some great solos and stomping skin work which is a shame because trimming of a couple of tracks may have made this less obvious.
