United Kingdom's solo project Ewigkeit has returned with a new recording which continues the experimental black metal style of his previous release and this is a review of his 2019 ep "Declassified" which was released by Death To Music Productions and consists of 2 songs from his last full length, Hawkwind and Saxon covers and a dub remix of one of his own original tracks.
Heavy riffs along with some atmospheric sounding synths start off the ep while the vocals are mostly blackened metal screams. Clean vocals are also used quite a bit throughout the recording along with the slower riffs showing an influence of doom metal and the solos and leads are done in a very melodic style.
The riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody while spoken word parts can also be heard in certain sections of the recording. Psychedelic elements can also be heard in some parts of the recording along with a brief use of acoustic guitars and at times the music also gets very experimental sounding.
Some of the tracks are very long and epic in length while one track also introduces clean guitars onto the recording and the ep closes with a dub remix track as well as all of the songs sticking to either a slow or mid tempo style. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover the modern UFOlogy movement.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Ewigkeit and if you are a fan of experimental black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Disclosure" and "Lights in The Sky". 8 out of 10.
