It's good to see you're contributing more reviews again! :thumbs-up:

Somehow I never got into this band. I'll have to re-listen to the track you've uploaded to the radio. Are there any other samples available anywhere? Your description sounds very promising, yet upon first listening, the track in the radio playlist remained just as vague and inaccessible as everything I've heard from them before. Bus still they're a band I want to 'get'...

I only heard one track and I liked it... on the same vein, but I'm not "upset" they are releasing a similar album in style... :D

I wrote the reviews of their three albums, and I don't know what else I'll find to say about the next one: they all sound quite the same. If you don't get it, I can't do nothing for you... It's just that this band might not be for you.

Post Re: Fungoid Stream - "Prehuman Shapes"

It's a bit frustrating since I always feel I'm on the verge of 'getting' it, but I never really cross that threshold. Maybe I'd have to give it a proper listen on CD, who knows. They're definitely interesting and quite unique at any rate, and they always sound like a band I should enjoy, if this makes any sense. You say that all three albums are very different; am I right in assuming that if I wanted to buy an album blindly, it wouldn't make much of a difference which one I choose?

What about that project Qhwertt, btw?I checked it out years ago and I probably still have one or two MP3s, but can't remember what it sounded like at all. Strange, I think. But that's the only impression I have of it.

What's there to 'get' in Fungoid Stream's music, really?
Besides, Baphomet keeps all the good stuff to himself (there would be a smiley here, but I'm too doom for smileys)...

If it's as dull as the last one, I don't care if and when it's gonna be released! The debut is a classic, though.

About Qwhertt: It' a rawer approach to funeral doom than Fungoid's, a bit more "space" too and sicker, more desperate.
Quite mad and more complex than it can seems at first.

@Wyrd: I think, seeing the high ratings you gave yo your last reviews, that you can't complain about the albums you got! ;)

I still would recommend the second one; those wailing whale chants are quite gripping!

Funny, I got rid of the debut and kept the next one.


Maybe you should really stay clear of Fungoid Stream! :D

I finally managed to listen to this and... I really liked it. Ok, nothing new on the horizon, but it's the usual well crafted journey into their mystical, musical world. Great background music when I'm working.

Do you know Qhwertt? Kind of the same but bleaker.
