DAATH Talks A Little Smack Against Progressive

Source: The Corner News

The article is about Ozzfest but a good chunk is dedicated to Daath. This is one of the Ozzfest bands about which I have some curiousity, mostly because of their name. It deals with a black metal kaballah of sorts... a new take on a tired theme(i.e. Behemoth's and Dimmu's latest).

Here's the prog smack: Unlike some metal bands, Daath isn’t technicality for the sake of technicality. All of the members in the band can play their instruments very effectively, but the focus of the band is clearly on the songs. “We don’t like to use odd time signatures, have 20-minute songs, or any of that sh*t,” says Werstler. “But a lot of people think we have our own kind of thing going here. Not a lot of extreme metal bands use synthesizers or have different movements in their songs. In that way, we’re very orchestral, and I think that helps set us apart.”

I dont think he is smacking progressive, necessarily...He is just saying they focus on playing their instrument to the best of their ability without throwing any pretentious/wacky shit in there.

EDIT: I'm sure Brads gonna read the title of this thread, skip the meat of Pavo's post, and start in on a Daath-thrashing.

I picked up their album. It has some decents songs on it but I'm going to have to listen a couple more times before making further comment. Every Ozzest, I 'adopt' a unfamiliar second stage band in buying a cd and rooting them on. Last year, it was the Red Chord. This year, it's Daath.
