Specialists/collaborators reviews

"Pluto" is the debut release by Norwegian rock/metal act Seigmen. It´s a 5 track, 25:38 minutes long EP, originally released through the band´s own Ikon label in April 1992. "Pluto" has later seen a reissue through 1:70/Sony.

On "Pluto" the band play a dark and depressive rock/metal style. The music is heavy, repetitive, and melancholic. The Norwegian language lyrics are brooding and sinister, and this is generally music where no light shines in, which is also reflected in the song titles. Dark and atmospheric music. The musicianship is decent and the sound production relatively well sounding. The songwriting is generally a bit immature and there is definitely room for improvement in that department, but Seigmen somehow still manage to pull it off in a convincing fashion. I´m not blow away by the standard of the material but still there is something strangely attractive about it.

Overall "Pluto" is a good start to Seigmen´s career. They would mature and develop their style further over the entire span of their career, but if you´d like to hear them as heavy and metal oriented as they ever got "Pluto" is the release to listen to. A 3 - 3.5 star (65%) rating is deserved.
Pluto - far out but also quite familiar.

This is a very good debute EP by a favourite of the Norwegian metal scene, very memorable and the riffs and atmophsre sticks with you.

The best thing with Seigmen is their unrelentles pomeling riffs that promisses some great listening experiences everytime you play the songs, you feal like its the first time everytime. why is it so, you might say?, Well i can only say in one way which makes the music and spessially on this album catch on you, is to just note how innovative it sounds, and how it sounds like to fit into the international scene of experimental metal, Seigmen created their own nieche, which no other metal bands that i have heard have touched, it is almost their own litle domain. though it later is obvious that they took note of what happend in the scene in California and spessially on Tools work, on the album Total, they brought Sylvia Massy who produced Opiate, and Ænima.

This album came out same as Opiate and us unrelated to any Tool inflence this and the later Ameneon, is statement of Seigmens devoted sence of doomy and grungy riffs, adventures, soul searchimg and not quite hard to grasp lyrics about symbolisme, religion, philosophi and other meta-relatedd themes.

best tracks on this album/EP is Fra X til Døden which is a rollercoaster ride and pummles like a rabbid dog thourgh a fast tarraign of doomy landscapes, Kortoget is also another great track, dark, mysterious, industrial, and doom metal at core.

words to discribe this album/EP is mystic and dark, creative and promissing,

Strongly recomended to all fans of doom metal, gothic metal, sludge metal, and post metal.
