Eohum – “Eurocide” as screams and quick, technical drumming take over the marching rhythm fueled by buzzsaw guitar riffs.”
The Mountain Man – “Open Graves” is a thunderous, head-banging juggernaut of power.”
The Decoys – “Their sound reflects the honest tones of Neil Young and Tom Petty, with a youthful, hunger for success.”
A Rebel Few – “It features nine speaker-shaking numbers that incorporate some of the greatest guitar riffs of the last five years.Beginning with “Born Again,” the band hits the perfect power chords to grab your attention. Continuing with the intense rhythm of “Rebel Few” and the chugging guitars of “Dyin’ Breed,” A Rebel Few keep their foot on the gas. They close their new nine-song release with the Black Sabbath-like riff of “Bitter Man” and vicious attack of “Pure Revolution”.”
Demise of The Crown – “Their new seven-song release hits you with a blast of energy right from the opening riffs of “We Are Invincible.” They quicken the pace and let out the screams for “Human Denial,” before showcasing their instrumental skills on the intense build-up of “Don’t Worry”.”
Rapheumets Well – “The thunderous march of “Crucible Of Titans” and the epic, prog-metal appeal of “Resurgence” showcases the amazing depth in this band’s musical repertoire.”
Selbst auf der relativ kurzen Spieldauer von gut 30 Minuten schaffen ÈOHUM es, gewaltig Arsch zu treten und sagen dabei deutlich mehr als andere Bands Die Band schafft es dabei gekonnt, den Hörer von der ersten Minute an zu umklammern und nicht mehr loszulassen.
‘Ealdfaeder’ is a high quality EP, showing Eohum to be a force to watch out for in the future. The song writing is great, the fury is real and the little additions make it all the more special. I love this record, and so should you.
Ealdfaeder includes only five songs, but altogether these span nearly half an hour in length, and they provide an excellent introduction to a talented band that’s worth checking out for their interesting “something old, something new, something borrowed” approach to constructing their music!
The pagan intro to ‘Eurocide’ becomes an eerie black metal blastfest, with a brooding ferocity entwined with brass instrumentation. It’s razor sharp in its delivery, and the flourishes of the French horn give it that little bit extra depth.
Ealdfaeder EP is another compelling and fascinatingly invasive proposal from Canadian metallers Éohum. The release sees the Montreal based outfit continue to entwine traditionalist and cultural spirited sounds and explorations into a doom infused black metal devouring of the senses. Marked again by the suggestive majesty of French Horn, the latest release is another creative conception which ignites the imagination and backs up thoughts arising from the previous encounter that this is a band with very potent horizons ahead of them.
