Ippocalyptica Symphony Mysterium is an album that I neither can nor want to listen to frequently, but the double-whammy of the compositional audacity here combined with my being a sucker for most things dissonant and avant-garde left me with no choice but to purchase this and to encourage everyone else to do the same. This is, at its core, modern classical music expressed through a sludge / doom prism, and while I cannot say where it will end up on my AOTY list, I can say that I will never forget it.

tobias_rieper 80+ minutes of dramatic and entertaining doom metal that should appeal to a wide range of metal fans. Convincing, aggressive, not too loud sludge vocals. The classical instruments do not stick out at all, but rather add to the drama.
I got a thank you mail from the future before I could even buy it. :-) I had to so the timeline doesn't get corrupted. Favorite track: Violin Concerto in A Minor.

YomaBarr I died and went to metal heaven. AOTY contender?

Finale 12:19
SHED THE HUSK TO THE UNFADING LIGHT THROUGH THE DIVINE NIGHTS WE MUST UNRWAP LAYERS OF LIES AND FEAR BECAUSE DEEP WITHIN IS A LIGHT BURNING AND CLEAR I FEEL OLD WITNESS TO MEANINGLESS LIVES AND TORTURE OF SOULS I ARISE I SEE WHAT I BELIEVE THE EGO IS NO MORE THE THINGS THAT HAD MADE THE AETHER THAT FORMED BLACKENED WINGS TATTERED SOUL SPROUT FROM ME SPROUT FROM ME I'VE GONE BEYOND SHEDDED THE SENESE OF SELF FOUND MY TRUTH THROUGH THE HEAVENS AND HELLS

about

An 85 minute journey through the dark night of the soul, composed in a classical symphony format in 4 movements. This album is a call to embrace the darkest parts of ourselves and our life and call to the truth in ourselves and others. Through the experience of true darkness, we can allow it to devour the false parts of ourselves, our perception, and our ego. The lyrics have been left broad and suggestive, as this journey is different for each and every person. This album is a perilous journey, and the only way to make it through is to remember:
