Eosphoros are a band from Portland, Oregon that plays an occult form of black metal and this is a review of their self titled 2018 which will be released in October by Iron Bonehead Productions.
A very fast and raw sound starts off the album along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats while the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams along with all of the tracks being very long and epic in length as well as the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while the riffs also bring in a decent amount of dark sounding melodies along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of both old school and modern influences as well as some tracks also adding in a small amount of clean playing and they also bring in a very ritualistic and drone orientated instrumental before closing the album with a heavier track and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style.
Eosphoros plays a style of occult black metal that is very raw, melodic and traditional sounding, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Luciferian, Gnosticism, Paganism and Anti Society themes.
In my opinion Eosphoros are a very great sounding occult black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Promethean Fire" and "Sylvan Apotheosis". 8 out of 10.
