Euclidean are a band from Switzerland that plays a very progressive form of post black metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Quod Erat Faciendum" which will be re-issued in 2019 on physical format by Division Records.
Clean playing and synths start off the album which also mixes in with the heavier sections of the music at times while most of the tracks are very long and epic in length along with some whispered vocals also being used briefly as well as the solos and leads being done in a very melodic style.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams along with some elements of doom metal also being added into the slower sections of the music as well as some growls also being utilized in some parts of the music.
A great amount of post metal elements can also be heard quite a bit throughout the recording while the music also gets very progressive at times along with some of the tracks being instrumentals as well as some tracks also adding in more of a post hardcore style of vocals and on the closing track a small amount of blast beats are added onto the recording.
Euclidean plays a style of post black metal that is very progressive and atmospheric sounding, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are a concept album about the four conceptions of the universe which also explores the Pagan, Pythagorean and Biblical points of view to give the subject different perspectives.
In my opinion Euclidean are a very great sounding progressive post black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this re-issue. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Numbers Hold Sovereignty" "As He Reached The Divine Yearning" and "And God Bred Chaos". 8 out of 10.
