I don't know if anyone here knows about this band, but I really like them! Anyway, the new album was released a few days ago without me even noticing it! Can't wait to hear it!

This will probably flop, but maaaybe there's someone out there who likes them :lol:

I know :D
This was a part of my wild youth years :lol:
(Industrial scene in mid 80's - Laibach!)

Me too,
Actually i wasn't aware they are still exist :o :oops:
(Maybe i'm too old for that kind of music right now)

Did you mean here or commercialy :o
(I think they never sold any album in more than 10 thousand copies)

I meant flop here (they aren't really a commercial well-known band so the term 'flop' can't be applied), thankfully you know them! 8-)

They're releasing new albums quite often actually, I also have to be really in the mood for them as they are not exactly something I listen to often.
I don't like their 80s industrial stuff tbh, I tried Nature Unveiled and it traumatised me :lol: I prefer their 90s onwards folky albums (considered classic imo), but I'm mostly a casual fan.

I don't know how much you're into their 90s work, but you must check out Soft Black Stars ('98) or All The Pretty Little Horses ('96), both brilliant albums! Some of the most gorgeous piano/guitar work I've ever heard. Also, I like their 2011 album Honeysuckle Æons, despite most fans claiming it's disappointing.
[I put links to some songs from the albums if you wanna check out]


I'm not impressed with this new one on 1st listen, but their music isn't really that type to impress on 1st listen, so I'm gonna try and delve into it some more. :D

Yes, they really softened in the 90's,
that is the main reason why i lose them of sight.

Yes, it is. Especially the guitar-backed songs. The piano ones are the most gorgeous imo, but that's probably because I'm a sucker for pianos. I sometimes wish there was some singing with it, though, it's like all these great melodies are going to waste with his recitals. :lol:

Great to see you like it! :D If you have trouble finding a download link, feel free to pm me. For Honeysuckle Aeons I had to manually download one song by one off Youtube, and for this new one I eventually found a really obscure site where I managed to download it :lol:

gosh, look at me all alternative in 2013, discussing Current 93 and all. :lol: haven't listened to them in a long time, not my thing anymore... + this album didn't really impress me either apart from that Antony/Anohni collab
