What a fucking great album!!! Especially the first cd which is monumental...
I'm glad that a band with a status like that doesn't turn into glamour doom and easiness.
All hails Esoteric!

Esoteric is the worst doom band ever in my opinion. I saw them live once, what a bunch of losers. Smile

So what is the best in your opinion? Esoteric has all the qualities of a great doom band.

I like the last album more, but still a great band. I will have to sell a kidney or two if that box ever surfaces Razz

I sense some irony here (I hope)...

Aesthetic Death Records is planning on releasing a box set soon:

ADLP 004 - ESOTERIC - 14x LP box set

I'll be looking forward to this, but I am sure that the postage is going to be as BRUTAL and depressing as the music is Wink

Only 7 replies to this?! How sad. "The Maniacal Vale" is a masterpiece. On a par, or slightly better than the 2004 predecessor.

I haven't heard any of the recent albums. Are they as good as the older material? Their layout seems to get worse with each release.

Yes, their new artworks suck major cock! How could one be so stupid to leave that unique art style from their early days?!?!?

Are we talking the same Esoteric band here ?
Great artwork from the early days ??? Wink

Like this ?


Or this ?


The next two covers yet are five minute photoshop jobs by all appearances.



The Manical Vale is apparently the first cover to actually be hand made by an artist.



And it is not that bad of a illustration.

I don't mind the new cover.

The only one I really like is their demo and first CD cover. The first CD cover is like an evil checkerboard.

Fuck this is it... masterpiece in the vain of Esher. I would like to see them continue with this graphic style.
