I enjoyed Aosoth and Anteaus live, they make good music, but the atmosphere on many of their albums detracts from the music. It's a static atmosphere of dissonance that grows somewhat monotonous because it seems to overshadow the guitar work to the point that it becomes a distraction rather than a complement. It seems to be more like it's just an atmosphere than a feeling the whole band is set in (i.e. Verge's "Because It's Wrong) and the vocals just don't mesh quite right with the rest of the music in either band. Despite the rough dissonance, it doesn't capture any of the energy both bands had live, it feels sort of sterile in comparison. Too much emphasis on the dissonant atmosphere. Seems like everything both of these bands have done since 2002ish has had the same feeling in a different way.
