Eriphion are a solo project from Greece that has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays a very traditional form of black metal and this is a review of his self released 2018 album "Doxologia".
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album along with some grim black metal screams a few seconds latter while the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody as well as some of the tracks being very long and epic in length and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the music more of a raw feeling along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the music also brings in a great amount of 90's influences but also adds in some modern traces.
Eriphion creates another recording that remains true to the traditional black metal style of his previous release, the production sounds very powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Eriphion and if you are a fan of traditional black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Worship" "Welcome To The Nightmare" and "The Immortal". 8 out of 10.
