Review: Eibon – Entering Darkness by Jayson

Eibon was recommended to me via a good friend of the blog, and an excellent recommendation it was. Like Vit, Eibon are taking elements from black, doom and progressive metal and creating some excellent music. Entering Darkness is an interesting ride. Rather than merge the elements that the band is choosing to incorporate into their sound into a unified sound, Entering Darkness unfolds along a spectrum, where a mixture of styles bleeds into the next. Toward the start of the album, the black metal influence is the strongest. Even though it persists in the vocals, there’s an almost a blacknoise thing going on. Angry, dissonant sounds bleed into a more leaden doom influenced sounds, followed by a marked move into prog territory, where things almost reminiscent of Isis are happening.

Brilliant stuff.

Entering Darkness is also available from Media Tree Recordings as a limited edition cassette with the band’s self-titled EP.

CDs and other stuff available from the band’s website.
