CAN BAŞKENT

BAAL "State of Agression" Americane Line Prods.
Some people are not for new sounds of the universe, further some others are not for to 'create' new sounds. Only the mixture of those two can bear this album. Fortunately the latter was already provided, but i never suggest you to provide the first case. Those Mexican guys do not offer anything worthy nor anything striking. Ordinary death metal with weak black touches. Already bored?
DARK VISION "Full Moon Shines" NMC
Many bands are just mere duplicate of themselves. Sometimes reviewers are as well :) "Can you imagine what would happen if all black metal bands were greats! Thanks to Dark Vision we are very far from that nightmare. Some bands as Dark Vision make you recall the great bands that they somehow influenced. Opmitisically, that is the unique benefit that Dark Vision provided."
NAERVAER "Skiftninger" Prophecy
Perfect, perfect, perfect... Nothing to add. A masterpiece, a pearl drop of glamour and grief, mixed up with some pessimistic sounds. Tears that flowed thru the red chicks of the beloved with a la Bob Dylan, clear and harsh vocals.. Ne denir ki.. Kusursuz bir melodik yapı ve olağanüstü kompozisyonun görkemi var bu CD'de. Tamam, biraz daha spesifik oluyorum. Hani sizde de olur mu, dinlediğiniz müzikle beraber büyüdüğünüzü ya da sanki o tınıların sizin bir arkadaşınızı olduğunu hiç hissettiniz mi?.. Naervaer'de benim sanki dostum gibi. Benimle ilgili her şeyi biliyor, ve bunları bana müzikle tekrar anlatıyor. Beni bana yansıtıyor.
NOIR DESIR "Des Visages Des Figures" Barclay
I really do not want to clasify this masterpiece as rock, neither saying that 'this is is a mixture of the Doors with some more instruments with some french souce.'.. Although, i did not get anything from the lyrics, due to that they are in French, i totally fell in love with the plain and easy-go melodies. 'Le vent nous portera' was my best friend during my deppression. Perhaps, it is why ND was a really good bed-time-story for me.. ND has evolved and revolved to a modern rock cult thru the years. des visages.. was released five years after the previous album. Last note: The final song 'L'Europe' lasts 23 minutes which is really longer than the ones we got used to. But, recently i learned that, it was the shortened version of the 3,5 hours long improvisation performence of the band.
PANTHEIST "Amartia" Firedoom
Can you imagine what would happen if all doom metal bands were greats! Thanks to Pantheist we are very far from that nightmare. Some bands as Pantheist make you recall the great bands that they somehow influenced. Opmitisically, that is the unique benefit that Pantheist provided. Usual synth boredom mixed with known riffs, can only yield a loss of time folks.
