This Toilet Tuesday (1/7/20)


New year, new tunes. You know the drill. Not much caught my attention this week, but Karhu’s got the goods for you. This list is pretty small, so let us know if there’s something we missed.

Empire of the Moon – Εκλειψις (Iron Bonehead) [Black Metal]

I’ve been waiting for Empire of the Moon’s sophomore to drop almost ever since I discovered them via recommendation from the presumably-deceased Dubya back in… 2015-ish? Eclipse, or, Εκλειψις, follows the Greek tradition of black metal- that is to say, a lot of big riffs and less of an aversion to solos than your usual fare is. Yet EotM has more in common with the second-wave as it became known outside their native country, than most of their peers. Not much has changed in the way they approach their songwriting, even if Eclipse’s symphonic elements are toned down a notch in comparison with the debut, resulting in a less Hellenic-influenced Nokturnal Mortum sound, and leaving (even) more room for largely mid-paced black metal mysticism. 1/10/20 (Karhu)
