Dredg - Life is but a dream....
    #1838931 - 08/21/03 11:23 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I highly reccomend the band dredg. They are a group of amazingly talented musicians who make some of the most satisfying music I've ever come across. Their music and lyrics have deep, multiple meanings.

Their second album, El Cielo is about and inspired by a Dali painting, with overtones about sleep paralysis and dreaming.

If you've never heard them, please download these songs...

-Sanzen
-Brushstroke: An Elephant in the Delta Waves
-Whoa Is Me

The album is really one big piece of music, so just listening to separate songs can't do it justice. Hope you guys enjoy if you haven't heard them. Also if you wanna read more about the concept of El Cielo and see the Dali painting its inspired by, check out This Site.

Peace!

"Of the Room" is the song you're referring to manna_man.

ekomstop, glad you liked it! I highly suggest you download the whole album (El Cielo) and listen to it as a whole, or I could give it to you through AIM or something, PM me if you want it!

i once was hiking in the malibu canyons with this girl, and i was tripping out harder than most other trips (roughly an eighth of cyanescens) ...

after a few hours (years) of a frightening trip, the girl put on some dredg (i never heard it before) and my trip became amazing and beautiful ... a truly intense trip ...

i listened to movements I to IV on headphones, and i was hooked

leitmotif is badass, but the instrumentation and general musicianship of El Cielo is much better. They were still figuring out their sound and learning their instruments when they made leitmotif. I really dig "Yatahaze" off that album.

I just listened to a few of their songs and they're pretty good, but in the songs I heard, I think the lead singer sings way too much. He is constantly in a chorus or verse or something and he doesn't let the band just jam out. That's what music is all about. The voice and lyrics should just be an additional instrument, not the focus. I don't know if all songs are like this (I heard Orph and that was hot as hell. Is there anything else like that?).

Please don't flame me. :frown:

If youre looking for instrumentals, download the "Brushstrokes". They are "Brushstroke: New Heart Shadow", "Brushstroke: Walk in the Park", "Brushstroke: An Elephant in the Delta Waves".

Also you might like "Yatahaze".

I love Gavin's voice, I can't get enough of it!
