@zaruyache Have you listened to the debut album? Because he didn't start out metal. Maybe like half dude's catalog as Horseback could even be classified as metal. And the new album still has a bunch of black metal vocals and guitar on the last track. I don't think he's really doing anything different with this project now than ever before. Which is just, basically, whatever the hell he wants.
this subject about M-A is ancient as fuck, can't believe you people still get bothered whether an artist is or is not included on some internet database. would it really put your souls at ease if it had its own page there? sheesh
@MichaelSnoxall, fuck those dudes at MA, seriously. There are so many examples of their shitty, euro-centric elitism keeping bands out of their "archives". Vali and Of the Wand & the Moon have profiles but artists like Horseback, Wreck and Reference, Between the Buried and Me, get shafted because they're too hip or whatever, despite being overtly metal. Fuck em.
so um...i think i don't really like the new album much. it has some nice moments, but they're too sparse. it kinda makes me think of a really mediocre Circle release, even the vocals sound similar to Janne Westerlund's
@Michouz: take a closer look at my charts before you say something retarded. There's nothing wrong with BM vocals, as long as it fits to the music, and in this case it doesn't in my opinion. Not to mention the fact that he's a bad singer like Rolandas_Pagan said.
As a fan of neither drone nor most black metal, I gotta tell you guys...for some reason, this is working for me. In fact, the almost Krallice-like black metal vocals is what puts the icing on the cake here. The juxtaposition works really well in my opinion.
