Unguentum Sabbati - Strange (?) Sounds
« on: December 07, 2011, 12:34:29 pm »
Hi folks,

Have you noticed the sounds (like hammer blows or something) around 2:10 (until 2:28 more less) and again at 3:55 -both during the "Phantom of The Opera" cameo- ?. First I thougth it was the battery plate but it is a more dry sound I think. I never noticed this until the other day I was at work and listening the song lower than usual.

What do you think?

Hey there Ignacio,

I haven't noticed that yet, but it may well be there. After all, Therion music often contains so many layers that you can still discover something new after a gazillion spins to a song. I'll have to check if I can hear those sounds.

Did you notice them while listening directly to the record or to an MP3 or similar file?

Cheers!

I actually think someone noticed that on the official forum right after the relase - or maybe I'm mixing it up with some other topic. Not sure now.

Though I am afraid the kiddo was rosie :D
But then again, who does.

@Markus: I was at work listening to an MP3 (but it is also in the record). What amazed me was the fact that I discovered (after a gazillion spins) that sounds while listening at a lower volume than usual. It is not quite perceptible listening the song louder.

@River: It is possible (that someone noticed that -not sure about the kiddo-  ;D) because I dont think it is a mistake, that sound was put on purpose in the record.

Chek it out during some spare time. Just want to know that I'm not starting to hear things  :unsure:

Hey folks,

Ignacio, I listened to "Unguentum Sabbati" straight from the CD and I didn't hear anything strange. Yeah, there are hammer-like sounds in the passages you mentioned, but that simply sounds like a normal kind of percussion to me. Either these are the sounds you mean, or you've heard some kind of compression artifacts.

Cheers!

So did it work? I just hope you only offered "Unguentum Sabbati" to your friends and no Unguentum Sabbati. :ninja:

Cheers!
