>'Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress' clocks in at a succinct 40:23 and is arguably the most focused and best-sounding recording of the band's career. Working with sound engineer Greg Norman (Electrical Audio) at studios in North Carolina and Montreal, GYBE slowly and steadily put the new album together through late 2013 and 2014, emerging with a mighty slab of superlative sonics, shot through with all the band's inimitable signposts and touchstones: huge unison riffage, savage noise/drone, oscillating overtones, guitar vs. string counterpoint, inexorable crescendos and scorched-earth transitions.
>arguably the most focused and best-sounding recording of the band's career.
I'm fucking hyped.
>Allelujah came out 3 years ago
Feels like yesterday that I read the news...
>Almost everything (if not everything) they've done has been relevant, noted, and remembered by the end of whatever year it was released in.
it sounds like the black keys or something hahahha it's going to be terrible
Does anyone else feel like this will be GY!BE's To Be Kind? Musically and conceptually it reminds me of Allelujah like TBK reminded us of The Seer, and judging by the snippet it seems they're going for a little more conventional approach.
This feels like an album that Fandingo would give a 10 to.
Anything that can properly be considered "music".
Can't wait for this to get panned so we can move on from this heap of a band.

Fatlelo's opinion means nothing in the grand scheme of things.
Says the person who thinks The Seer is massively better than Allelujah haha
The Seer should have been 100-110 minutes. WAY too many moments of NOTHING happening.
To Be Kind is a more cohesive album that flows MUCH better.
It's the live-name of the piece, pretty much all of their songs have carried different names before an album release, like Tiny Silver Hammers, Tazer Floyd, John Hughes, Albanian, Gamelan...

I know, but I agree with him, Behemoth just sounds much better, Mladic was an okay rename for Albanian, since it was a cryptic way of referring to the live name.
Looks like a good way to divide that album.
I listen to recordings of their live material more, especially some versions of Sad Mafioso with the string creaking or the helicopter tremolo at the end, or the earliest version of Moya.
>tfw your 500 lastfm scrobbler could've been 2500
fucking last.fm addiction man
>popular band drops new record
>"muh plebs in this thread getting hyped over meme band releasing more maymays"
Are you seriously so far up your own asses that you're going to waste your time shitting on excited fans of one of the, whether you like it or not, most acclaimed bands of the past 20 years.
Someone literally made a thread yesterday saying how Efrim was a lazy fuck for not releasing anything yet
By the way, this FUCKING TRACK IS AMAZING. Gets fucking real from the middle and on
actually if he wouldve caved to public pressure to release all lights fucked, that wouldve been selling out. same logic applies to behemoth. hes not selling out by creating shit he wants to put out, not what the fans want or what would sell
I have F#A#Inf split too, but couldn't find the cues for that. Reference times on there anyway*. Times are also up on discogs (on which I based and tuned my splits by):
*Note that the silence in the end is not titled, so last.fm doesn't scrobble it :-)
same as this anon, i dont keep track of bands live stuff unless its released as a live album (SWANS ARE DEAD, etc.)
who wants to view some 240p youtube video in shit quality butchering the audio
I just did it for fun years ago, and decided to keep it since there's no harm to it. I do slightly prefer it, since the movements with names and lengths are freely available and they split into logical descernable (for the most part) segments. Several of the CD tracks comprise of two or more smaller songs that have been played live separately on multiple occasions, for an example Monheim and 3rd Part. It's just an alternative representation of the albums contents, and I like that representation better instead of the bloated vinyl-side one.
>Not him, but I actually agree dude.
For one, youtube is not where you go for their live sets, the band allows people to record their material and a good deal of it is of decent quality with the uploader having listed their mic and other equipment setup.
It's still not as good as the quality of the studio recordings, but some live tracks are far less muddled from the production work and the band is more "on" with some performances during certain shows.
I've listened to live tracks that blow the studio ones out of the water, this is the first band that got me into live recordings.
This word means nothing anymore. You've killed it. Congrats anon.
>I'm not that interested in live music
I don't know if I can find a specific example other than probably Merjeriet or L'Olympic, so I'll just throw some links out.
>Not realizing that YUXO is objectively their worst album
This is physically painful
>Thinking yanxi is their best
Albini is a hack, but miraculously he didn't manage to fuck up the album. It is soulless if you judge it by the same the same standard as their other albums, but instead it offers more complex palette of emotion and ideas that are easy to dismiss if you only compare it to the predecessors. And in any case it's still the best music they ever produced. It's the one album that truly exhibits their range of their capabilities (which 'Allelujah is the anti-thesis of).
Also, Rockets is the worst song on the album. Easy to get into, but it's simple, repetitive and void.
Because you're the arbitror of what a band is supposed to be. Again, step outside the box and consider the album on its own isntead of hanging on to a stigma and tropes.
