I was not joking, nor was I being sarcastic. Mark my words, I love this song a lot.. Might even be my favorite Riverside track ;) But I just figured that they were similar in melody and style. Nothing else :) Not an attack on anyone.
Awesome song, I like evry part of it. Sadly I can't escape from feeling that 8:25 to 8:53 part is so similar to "Ghost of perdition" by Opeth, and yes there is something similar to "Closure" too :( Too bad, I have the same feeling evry time i listen to 'egoist'. Checked few times this 3 songs and sadly i was right. But beside that "Egoist Hedonist" is awesome, almost perfect and of my fav Riverside songs. The part from 5:50-8:53 is also inspired (was in interview) and refers to "Wedding" book by Wyspiański and film by A. Wajda, specialy to "Chochol Dance" - chochol = human-like pile of cutted cereal. Chochol dance was symbol of nation in stagnation, imprisoned and sedated.
