I only have the song "The Antlers of the Midnight Sun" from Blue Cathedral and do like it.
cannot recommend it highly enough...buy!!!
dunno really, Blue Cathedral is probably the obvious answer. I find it too relentless - there are parts where you wish they would take it down a notch to make the more brutal bits slightly more powerful, but the release never comes. It's not a very well structured album basically
If you like "Antlers..." then most of Blue Cathedral is in a similar vein. Though as douchebag says, it can get a bit relentless. Avatar mixes up the scary full-on freak-out with some mellower stuff which is mostly really nice.
They're both great albums though. Field Recordings from the Sun is good too.
BC is noisy, fucking noisy... in a good way. A very good way.
Avatar is more Stooges 60's hard rock psychedia. Also good. Different. Almost like two different bands.
is probably the best introduction. sounds like they'd been listening to a shiltoad of cream and the band .... blue cathedral is maybe my favourite album ever and i don't find it relentless at all - plenty of quiet meditation perdiods in which to dwell amidst the chaos. field recordings and the debut are both fine records too, but don't quite have that edge ....
but i don't think they come at the right points, or they're too few and far between. There are times when you've just faced a total onslaught of a track, but they just hit you again with some similiar brutality
