Infinity by Jesu
Justin Broadrick is the man behind this experimental group, Jesu. They have released three albums that all seem to be different from each other. This one is on one single song that lasts fifty minutes.
The song contains a mixture of Ambient, Slude Metal, Guitar Droning, Shoegaze, and Electronic effects. The song itself begins with a kind of poppy feel, but it doesn't take long for the smashing guitars to kick in. Justin's vocals on the track are emotionally charged especially once the song reaches the twenty five minute part. It has a tragic, but yet beautiful feel to all of it. The ambience and electronics are dreamy, but they don't let you back away from the violent crunching chords.
Many people have tried to do what Jesu has done and seem to not do it correctly. He holds a talent of creating music that is way farther out there then where most people can go. Let's just say that Infinity takes a step out of the comfort zone and smashes it to fucking pieces. I find that idea brilliant.
Get this shit.
