I have not posted here in a while, but I wanted the opinion of those who think of music in a more thoughtful way, and this was the only place I could think of where the history of music is not just some attempt to make all people seem equal to eachother and pose for shoe commercials.
I was wondering if any of you, while digging through the early roots of extreme music, ever came across Antonius Rex and their earlier form, Jacula. I listen to them, and am most struck by how it seems completely impossible that they exist at all, with their particular sounds at the particular era. I enjoy the soundscapes, though I probably would have a different opinion if this music came out in the late 90s. I think that this much originanity for a time deserves a look at what the deeper message of it was, and so far I have not been dissapointed.
I am thinking maybe a big joke is being played on me and this band never really existed, but the joke must have been on someone else, as I am no one.
