Ewigkeit are a solo project from the United Kingdom that has been featured before in this zine and plays a 90's style of keyboard orientated black metal on this recording and this is a review of his 2017 album "Battle Furies 2107" which will be released in October as a joint effort between Svart Records and Death To Music Productions and is also a re-recording of his 1997 album.
A very heavy sound along with some melodic guitar leads start off the album along with some grim black metal screams a few seconds later while t he riffs also bring in a great amount of melody and when synths are utilized they give the music more of an epic feeling and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
When tremolo picking is utilized during the faster sections of the songs it gives the music more of a raw feeling while battle sounds can also be heard briefly and the music also brings in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and male and female clean vocals can also be heard on some of the tracks.
As the album progresses acoustic guitars and spoken word parts along with some symphonic elements are also brought into the songs while a couple of the later tracks is also instrumentals which also is done in a prog rock direction and the other one is done in more of an ambient style and the album closes with covers of Samael's "Baphomet Throne" and Therion's "Paths"..
On this recording Ewigkeit brings back his 1997 keyboard orientated black metal album and re-records it with modern technology while still maintaining an old school vibe, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism, Paganism, Metaphysical and Anti Christian themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Ewigkeit and of you are a fan of 90's era keyboard orientated black metal, you should check out this re-recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Jewel Of My Empire" "Dragons Burning" "God Of Ages Awakened" and "Baphomet's Throne". 8 out of 10.
