Eohum are a band from Montreal, Quebec, Canada that plays a mixture of black and doom metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Ealdfaeder" which was released by Mycellium Networks.
Folk music instruments start off the ep before adding in a heavier sound along with some melodic riffing and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard along with some black metal screams and the slower sections of the songs are heavily influenced by doom metal and death metal can be heard.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and they also mix folk instruments in with heavier parts and some of the tracks are long and epic in length and the faster sections of the songs also use a great amount of tremolo picking which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling and the guitar leads also use a decent of melody and the last track also brings in a small amount of spoken word parts.
Eohum plays a musical style that takes Norwegian influenced black metal and mixes it in with doom along with a touch of death metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Traditionalism and Environmental Decay.
In my opinion Eohum are a very great sounding mixture of black and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Unmasking A World Of Deceit" and "Ode To A Martyr". 8 out of 10.
