I love how this group is the best entry level avant-garde metal band...silly, but they have substance, crazy experimentation yet put together in very accessible ways...I think their ability to be crazy and quirky without it being too much for many is why they're pretty successful for avant-garde metal.
The Conjuration - "Surreal" (Remastered) One man extreme experimental metal insanity!

Didn't realize Naught had such a bad rep....god no matter what band there are always bitching about something. Can't we just fucking enjoy the music and stop being so opinionated and expecting perfection? Lol I think Naught is actually better tbh
Listening to Naught for the first time right now and I honestly don't understand everybody's gripes with it. Sure they didn't 100% revolutionize their sound but...so what? While I don't believe a band should stagnate, I also see nothing wrong in a band honing their sound. Look at the new releases from Haken and In Vain last year; still the same style as the previous albums, yet tweaked and more refined into their true vision, thus producing two albums which showcase their respective bands in top form. I see Naught as just that; a refinement on TBSA. Even so, it's pretty distinct from TBSA already.
What balls these guys have.. Releasing their second album 6 years after the debut with no progressions at all (Besides better production quality than on Squabbles). Nothing Avant-Garde or progressive about them.
I've been looking forward to the new album for so long, I had read a lot of people's comments about how amazing it is too which intrigued me even more. I haven't heard it in it's entirety yet but from what I have heard, and I am very surprised I'm saying this, I don't like it. There's no structure to the songs, it just sounds like random noises and I haven't heard a catchy song yet. I'll still buy the new album to listen to it properly but I'm not sure if it'll grow on me....
