no i havent, but i checked them out on myspace now, and i listened to their latest song and compared it to the older ones, and i found nothing in it that sounds even slightly commercial. to me anyway.
maybe the other songs on the new album is different from that one?

sell out for me is when a band change their style so it can be accepted on big commercial radiostations, mtv, and other mainstream media.

if a DM-Band wants to sell out, they have to remove certain elements from the music and add other stuff instead, that can appeal to the masses. like catchy choruses, maybe some clean vocals, and the riffs and arrangements should be less complicated, catchy memorable melodies is a way to go also. i think slipknot is a pretty good example how a DM Band could sound like if they wanted to sell out.

Great examples of this is In Flames and Satyricon.

well the first time I heard the "Swarm of the Formless" opening riff I thought it was super catchy! it stuck with me right away.same for the chorus of "Spawn of Possession". "EVIL EVIL!" haha. not trying to make you out to be wrong or anything, since it's all just about opinions. but I don't think there's anything wrong with catchy simple riffs in death metal.

Did you listen to the song "Bemoan the Martyr" at all? It added a lot of elements that would indicate a band trying to gain more commercial appeal: the rather cliche spoken word sample, the metalcore vocals and guitarwork, the addition of very commercialized clean vocals... It all screamed as a push for accessibility to me. But I realize that is just one song.

Honestly though, I just think the biggest thing against the band is loss of members. Their songwriting abilities don't seem anyway near what they used to be.

no i didnt find that song on myspace, i was listening to "worship your demons" and compared that one to the others. but i downloaded the song you mentioned now, and i understand what you mean. only the future can tell if they going to explore that path any further.

okey, i really dont know, because i dont listen to them. but if they had several or better songwriters before i guess some elements are gone now or just different.
they probaly get some new fans which like the new stuff better than the old. its always like that.

OFF ORIGINAL TOPIC :

I will agree with most things written about new Cryptopsy, but I think they've earned the 'benefit of the doubt' to be honest. These guys are truly world class musicians, and are undeniable pioneers of the whole genre death metal. It took YEARS for people to actually realize what they were playing originally and how brutal/kick ass it was. That said, they have certainly abandoned the "as brutal as possible" approach, but I'm going to reserve judgment until I hear the album in full. Maybe it's blind faith, but hey, I think they deserve a little bit. It may take months and months to absorb the real meaning and appreciate what they were going for, which always make the meaning more satisfying in the end. Also, Canadian/Quebecios metal RULES :emot-LOL:

Tying it back to SoP, I like to think I have a good ear for music, but after 10 listens of Noctambulant I found more and more repeated motifs throughout the songs, a tribute to well-thought out composition.

You also have to remember that the BMF, NSF, WS, ATYB and Once Was Not were all written by Jon Levasseur, except one song from OWN, and probably some riffs here and there.So it's just not the same Cryptopsy anymore, and there's nothing to absorb anymore.

philkilla666 05-18-2008 08:28 PM

Well, there is something to absorb, but it appears not many people want to absorb it...

Bryzzology/Bryzzologist ... could be like a spoof on Scientology. :emot-LOL:

When I rejoin the Army, I should put my religious preference as "Bryzzlamist".

If they have any questions I'll just make them listen to Lash.
