Musica, redux

Finally, an opportunity for all three of you to get a glimpse into the twisted world otherwise known as my mind via music.

I hereby offer, for your delectation, a sample of music rarely heard but whereof I think highly. It is a good (though not the best) track by an obscure Italian band "Aborym" off their 2006 album "Generator." They have been described as experimental/cult/black metal, but, in short, I've heard nothing else like them. You must listen to the entire song, or at least the first three minutes or so, to really appreciate the talent and originality (wait for the change). I know some of you will dislike it vehemently outright, but I don't care. There is much garbage or formulaic and predictable death/black metal out there, but these guys, though heavy, can be quite musical. I would also call their music atmospheric.

Warning: keep your fingers near the volume knob/button because it may be loud, although one needs headphones to appreciate the aural tapestry.

Keep in mind that I also listen to "normal" music: classical, trance, pop, etc.
