Post Evoken - Hypnagogia

I decided to make a thread for this album, just to keep the comments in one place.

So, as baphomet already posted we have the first song from the new album. As always with Evoken, it does not grab me upon the first couple of listens at all, but I think I like the change in sound, it's quite dynamic for them (which should be a bad thing if you liked the previous albums, but I didn't=).

the problem I have with this one song is that it goes in all directions; you got it all in one package, death doom, post-metal, melodic doom and a bit of funeral, it sounds a bit artificial.

To me, it's much better than the previous stuff, which I always found terminally boring... :)

A new song is out:




It sounds even more weird (for Evoken) than the first one. I was quite surprised by the upbeat clean vocals=)))

odd song. It ends very abruptly, and the clean choir thing is er... a bit embarassing.

I have a awkward feeling about this. Hopefully the album as whole will be good.
