There is also a doom rule that says if you get stuck in a lift with a manic depressive, make sure they are on their depressive cycle.

There's only so much enthusiasm a doomster can take

Post Re: Funeral Doom

Recently I got the “Ordeal”-record of Skepticism. Although it was not my first touch with Funeral Doom, as a Live-DVD was contained and as I remembered this thread I thought there were some words to say…
I do not share the thought that it is about love. Surely Funeral Doom can be about love, but in fact it is all about loss in whatever shape. Many people experience this loss within the themes of love, but it can be something else, too.
That within the 5 steps it often starts with depression may simply be this way because music dealing with the other steps is often put into other genres. Anger or acceptance are just no doomy themes.
It is obviously not meant this way, but Funeral Doom (as every other doomy style) sounds like radiant sunlight to me. I know I should think of frozen graveyards and dark forests, but instead of that a glowing ocean rushes against rocks of golden darkness. Sorry for all my misunderstanding.
About depression… I do not know if I already qualify as an expert, but I think everybody deals differently with it. For some the process of creation may be helpful, others may not want it. People are very different, also in dealing with their problems.

p. s.: One time I thought “The perfect music to be played Corona-conformally”. Very self-centered and silent. Many other styles are explicitly not made for an audience in distance, but there…Sitting quietly in the twilight, the next ones far away in the dark, nobody speaks and disturbs the atmosphere…not everything is just bad now.
And, by the way, a much bigger and especially higher room would also be pretty suitable. Silly, but art is everything!

I hope no one feels offended now, but that is what I thought.

And what do you think of Ordeal, in the end?

The sound of the music is monumental. I love that! The sounds of the audience are strange, but somehow interesting, as the whole idea of a live gig instead of a recording session is interesting.
I have the good feeling of exploring something new (5 years old = “new”, haha) and beautiful.

As for me, I really would like to hear it with a regular studio sound, and without the very annoying reactions of the audience that denature the music, imo.

Yes, but I think it could be worse – the audience behaves rather “cultivated”, maybe due to the fact that it´s no party music. Most similar releases are regularly recorded, and I don´t know what a live session means to a musician, so perhaps it had to be this way. And, by the way: As a complete Non-musician I was astonished to see that the drummer uses such big drumsticks which obviously cause that monumental sound.
