    Behemoth
    Sad Mafioso

    Last night's show was solid, their first in AZ since '99. Crowd was ok, and it seemed that during Mladic the guitars were tuned too low, but it was adjusted later in the show.

    The only negative I have to say is purely selfish: I haven't seen them perform anything from Slow Riot the 4 times I've seen them. Maybe next time!

    So did nobody listen to the excerpt? Because it really deserves a mention. It's fantastic: beautiful melody towards the end and lots of dynamics.

    Isn't it just a condensed recording of Behemoth?

    I don't know about condensed. It says (excerpt) at the end of the MP3, and the official press release calls it an excerpt, which leads me to believe it's probably an excerpt.

    It sounds like the whole album is a recording of the composition that fans have been calling Behemoth. So, again, excerpt.

    Behemoth is normally around 45 minutes long when performed live, the new album is only 40 minutes long.

    So yes, it's an excerpt, but it's also a condensed take on Behemoth.

    Dude, they released an excerpt of a single song from the album. That excerpt of a song is not a condensed take on Behemoth. It's an excerpt of a song that is a part of a larger composition.

    Words have meaning.

    ecstatic to hear that a new album is coming!

    and yes, the track is the excerpt of the intro portion of Behemoth.

    I can't wait to listen to this. the droning, crescendos, and ear-tickling goodness returns!

    Not really...it varied, my two recordings I made when I saw them perform Behemoth, it took up about 35-40 minutes each time. The new album is basically a studio version of Behemoth broken into 4 movements. This shouldn't be a big surprise as GYBE usually plays new songs live for a year or two before releasing them on albums as studio recordings.

    What do you think the word "condense" means?

    while this is clearly an excerpt, and 'condensed' also encompases a variety of things that are not excerpts, I think that technically an excerpt is a kind of condensation.

    I tend to think of condensation as keeping the essential character of something, but reducing it to a smaller size. An excerpt, on the other hand, is a small sample of a larger whole. A Reader's Digest condensed novel keeps the essentials of the plot, the characters and the setting, whereas a New Yorker excerpt from a book provides us with a chapter.

    that was my initial thought too. then looked up various defintions of 'condense' and decided that simply shortening something meets the definition. but now I look again and realize the definitions do usually give a sense of a calculated shortening, which would typically rule out truncation. so I take it back. it's not impossible for an excerpt to also be a consendsation, but it typically would not be.

    They debuted a couple new songs last week at their latest round of live shows, and they sound fucking amazing. Hopefully in another years time or so, we'll have them officially released. Stream them here:
