    General CommentI can't believe no one else has commented on this brilliant song. The first few minutes are so soothing and repetitive, when all of the sudden you're bombarded with catastrophic dissonance. I'd pay a million bucks to see this performed live (and maybe 5 minutes longer?) ;) I found a video some art student made on youtube that features this song: youtube.com/…

    General CommentWell obsidian is a volcanic glass mineral, that isn't actually found in Sweden (or Scandinavia). So does the formation or uses of obsidian fit into the instrumental composition of this song?

    I don't know? Perhaps the slow start is the lava of a volcano being dormant and then it erupts and then cools down to form the obsidian?

    Not sure that the music in this song ever really reaches great sounds though. Not a instrumental that is on high rotation for me, a lot better post-metal instrumental bands out there that do these sort of songs better.
