Do you know the cymbal hits in the beginning of Pascendale is morsecode which they obviously used in WW 2. I could go on and on...awesome stuff
Yeah I had read that. Paschendale is another really good example of that quality. There's a certain melancholy to the entire song, even the solos, that (along with the lyrics) makes you feel how sad war really is. As proof of how well it works musically, I synched up one of the solos to a short clip from the movie War Horse where the horse runs across a battlefield (that battle might have even been Paschendale itself, the movie was set in WWI but I'm not sure). It synched PERFECTLY, it was really amazing.
