    i dont know if its a good idea to even post this.
    okays so... i knew them for a while, but "got" into them more not so recently, as i felt way far-er from the other bands and i didnt want to get baack to them before things changed back. but it still didnt happen.

    they have some pretty disturbing/creppy/subliminal/deep things.
    i dont know if i should post these, but they seem to be okay about it, as they even favourited fan videos and uploads on their channel if im right:

    i dont know most of their things, but some examples i know:
    (but listen at own risk =o)

    one of the .. maybe not saddest, but depressing songs for me =o but ask if Yu dont know why i think so

    they also have lighter things

    and one of the.. a.. maybe not most thought-out, but a song that i think really reflects the meaning with the music, or at least what i think :O

    wells thats all.. now i really think i shouldnt have posted this.

    sorry if i ruined you or something =o or if i shouldnt have posted these. actually im sure i shouldnt have posted anything.
    well cyas. good night--_-__

    (yeps i think i actually got too close to these thingies)
    [but now this doesnt seem as bad as when i was even lonelier]

    @You- It's great to share other music we care about with each other! It's how I've found lots of other great music to listen to. I will give these guys a go tomorrow during work, and let you know. Thank you for sharing

      I will listen them later too

        wells actually its a good thing noone cares about this thread =o topic thing


        • #5
          Not so. I will be honest that I haven't listened to them yet, but that doesn't reflect on whether I care about the topic or not. I fully plan to listen to them. This week has not been the best and I will be honest there's been much Rammstein and Emigrate and not much else.

          But don't think I won't, just because I haven't yet. I will put it on tomorrow for work and see where it takes me

              @You are way too pessimist even for my standards, man.

After all, nothing is better than eternal happiness, and a ham sandwich is certainly better than nothing. Therefore a ham sandwich is better than eternal happiness."

                for work? uh =o
                no, i really think its not a good idea to really get into them
                or maybe i just think so becouse they can be attached to the recent events that happened to me
                even though i knew them for a while ..

                  Ok, I'm giving it a listen. I work from home, so I can listen to whatever I want as loud as I want. It helps make the days go by faster...

                  Listening to the first link you gave, and it's not bad. Sort of Prodigy-ish? Not the sort of thing I'm mostly into, but this isn't something I would just skip on Pandora.

                      + 1 , I'm with Snake on this one.
                      @You: You're lately always saying sth and than you go like "well, no one should read this, and I shouldn't have written it", and than you even don't want to listen to positive comments and conclude with "but you don't care anyway". C'mon, get a grip, man!

                        Well, I listened to them yesterday night and today, my first reaction wasn't very good, but I liked more the last songs so I decided to give them another try today, definitely it's not my kind of music, but it's not bad.

                          so i guess noone wants me to write about what i think of 'Everything you do is a balloon' =o
                          or how to say.
                          the first songs are the ones i like the most. becouse they are the uh.. "naturally" scariest sounding songs i know of, or just the darkest sounding.
                          i think their songs arent that good to listen to, i mean not too good sounding, but more symbolical with the music or how to say. like the last one i linked. i think it sounds especially bad, and the tempo the percussion things give sound off too, but i think it has a reason too

                          i left out a song some might know:
                          i remember this from way back =o

                          and this too:

                            didnt notice before that i double posted...
                            wells anyway
                            here is what i wrote on youtube about it, not like anyone cares:

                            i imagine the first part as present , like an old man sitting, thinking about his past life. its slower, and part of the melody is just like the loudest lead part of the parts after this intro. there is also a kind of transition after the intro, which also has a kind of sound which makes it seem even clearer that its a transition. i imagine its a transition from present to past, or just thinking about the past. like the old man now thinks his life through, what he lived through. its much more energetic, much more full of hope, and as i said that loud lead part sounds like a part of the intro, so i think its intentional and they are related. the song ends in a much more sad sounding way, or tragic maybe.i think the title means, that no matter what you do, it will just fly away like a balloon some day... like how it did to me

                              The only no-caring going on is you not caring about anything we say, especially if it's trying to comfort you. It doesn't matter what we say, you already made up your mind. That's exactly why I stopped reacting on most of your posts.

                              But to prove you're wrong and show you that there's no way you can say I don't care: I just listened to the songs you've posted about (even had to search for two by myself, as it was removed from youtube). And I must honestly say it's really not my cup of tea. I can imagine it works relaxing and therapeuting for many, but for me, it's a bit boring new age-stuff. I can dig more quiet calm music, but it should have more variation, surprises to me. For me it stays on the surface, it's more "estranging" for me than apealing. Maybe it expresses feelings and phenomena I can't relate to. To me it sounds either too dreamy, vague or just very weird and even slightly disturbing (like that Salade Fingers- thingy there). And anyways, music whitout vocals almost never touches me. A exception is Buckethead's music. I'll give you a link to try it out: . Feel free to tell me what you think! (after all I put the effort in listening to yours ).
                              But thx for sharing anyways. It's through threads like these I discover things I'll afterwards find hard to miss in my life .
