I think it's actually referencing Mussorgsky

Great post. Friesen would run circles around all modern tech bands, and even older classic bands such as Cryptopsy, Suffocation, and Gorguts would have a hard time keeping up with him.

Dark Tranquillity "The Gallery". Amazing album before the wimp-out.

They've always been wimpy.

Windham Hell was a great find.

Yep, I completely agree. Friesen and Leland are beyond underrated, they are almost completely unknown even in the underground scene.

I was lucky enough to find an original of the '88 demo tape. It's super horrible production, but you can tell he is really onto something interesting. A mix of bach, thrash and something altogether new.

Exactly Mussorgsky! It's actually a 2 cd set of the omonymous piece. On the first it's just the band's version and on the second you can hear the band with an orchestra. Pretty original for 1996 I think...

Is it possible to get Eric Friesen's solo stuff anywhere now, or did they pretty much disappear when he died?

One of the few metal versions of classical music that I like is Graf Spee's Self Destruction (based in Albeniz "Iberian Suite").

And there's also Cirith Ungol's version of Bach's Toccata & Fugue but I tend to skip that track, it's not bad but it takes away from the atmosphere of the rest of the album in my opinion.

These were just uploaded yesterday. No views, haha!

I've seen the CD's around, but they were not pressed in big quantities so you might have trouble finding anything.

I meant the CDs. Found them on Soulseek at least, but it would be cool to own them. Will definitely have to pick up some Windham Hell when I get back from vacation.
