Seventeen Seconds by The Cure goes very well with working on a longish poem about haunted houses.

I've also been meaning to purchase Disintegration and Pornography; the latter I tried to listen to, but couldn't get into, sometime around 2013. I remember the songs sounding very flat, very monotonous and heavy, but now that I have the context of The Cure's other work, I'll probably be able to appreciate their layers better.

I go through bouts where I obsessively listen to Manilla Road's Crystal Logic album. This past week I've been listening to it over and over again, along with the latest Nile release when I feel inexplicably angry.

This is my favourite track off of Crystal Logic.

I have such seasons as well. Crystal Logic is among my favorites these days! Well-balanced album with hits and epics.

Great minds think alike, they say 8-)

I've been obsessively listening to Nevermore (Dreaming Neon Black, and This Godless Endeavour) from start to finish because of a dear friend recommending these specific albums to me. He thought I would specifically be drawn to the former, and he was right. I can't think of a bigger honour than someone thinking of you and recommending music based off what they know about you. To me that really is one of the most intimate ways to share with someone. Any art, really. A poem, a piece of visual art.

I am completely in love with this album by Sulphura.

https://sulphura.bandcamp.com/album/rev ... dkwv36linc

It came out the day before our last calendary rite, and I listened to it for the first time during the ritual. I find the music extremely powerful, and it does wonders to calm and clear my mind. I've used it for all meditation and prayer work since, for sacred reading, and if I'm writing anything on the forum, chances are good that I'm listening to it as well. Luckily the bandcamp purchase came with a download for a 5.5 hour version, so any long-writing is not a problem :lol:

The album is ambient, by one of the guys behind the also excellent Schammasch, who released one of the best metal albums I've heard in a long, long time last year. I am not listening to much metal these days, but this is one of the few that is remaining a constant.
