Written in waters

Joseph Sullivan Wonderfully abstract, mystical and mildly disturbing, VBE derive all of their avant-garde sound from the way they approach their instruments. No gimmicky bells and whistles. Vicotniks guitar creates a bizarre tapestry of dissonant chords for Skoll to slink around under and provide elegant melodic phrasings. Meanwhile, Carl-Micheal creates a mind boggling rhythmic backdrop complete with some impressive cymbal muting. The hypnotic, near deadpan vocals are the icing on this surrealist cake. Favorite track: I sang for the swans.

Gabratta This is easily one of my favourite records of all time. A masterpiece of creativity Favorite track: Den saakaldte.

Ippocalyptica This is one of the very few avant garde metal albums to 100 percent embody that adjective. This is black metal with progressive elements weaved together in such a way so as to defy simple description. Dissonant melodies, jazzy progressions, unusual time signatures, and amazing bass work (rare in black metal) all combine for a transcendent listening experience. It also stuns me that people do not see the influence that Written in Waters had on post-2004 Deathspell Omega, but it is totally there.
