This is one of those great flashback tunes from the British shoegazer movement of the early/mid 1990's. Great wash of sound, simple hooks, chorus, theme. I hate to use the word "perfection" but Black Metallic captures the mood so well from that era, it's hard not to put it on a pedestal.

One departure this song holds from most shoegazer rock was the fact that you could actually hear and understand Rob's lyrics. Most of the stuff from that era (Lush, Slowdive) had vocals pretty far back in the mix; as if the sound of the track was more important than the words. This isn't a bad thing, but was a common trait of most tunes that fell into that subgenre.

Great tune, and a great example of the era.

Etheral, trippy, just pure awesomeness of the early 90's shoegaze rolled up into one 7 minute and 18 second song. Don't get me wrong, the Ferment album in itself is worth the purchase but this track just stands out as one of it's greatest defining moments in my modest, humble opinion.

Re-discovered this song...loved the sound bands like Catherine Wheel; Jesus & Mary Chain; Cocteau Twins and others put out in the late 80s. Proves the 80s wasn't void of relevant music.

...from the film S. Darko. A lot of people didn't care for this sequel to Donnie Darko, but it was okay. Had some good music in the sequel. Alive Alone, The Carnival Is Over, etc.

I hate the long boring guitar solo in the middle of this song. But the lyrics remind me that I do turn black metallic at times.
