Eoront - Another Realm Award winner

Another Realm
by Craig Rider at 22 September 2017, 10:21 AM

Metal maniacs, rejoice! I'm proud to present to you: EORONT; signed via Code666 Records, hailing from the Russian Federation - performing Atmospheric Black Metal, on their 2nd album entitled: “Another Realm” (released June 16th, 2017).

Since formation in 2012; the quintet in question have one album behind them, I'm introduced to their 2nd record “Another Realm”. Incorporating a solid atmospheric embodiment of Black Metal distinctions, EORONT deliver a unique balance of atmospheric ambience as well as raw instrumentation and musicianship that's both dominant and proficient. 7 tracks ranging at around 01:01:33, the quartet provide an intricately designed formula that has an organic substance with a deadly aesthetic of devastating proportions. Opening with “The Rain”, the complexion is felt at your composure immediately with a calming sensation - until it builds up to the chaotic Black Metal mayhem. The arrangements are developed with unprecedented results, fusing the aforementioned attributes contributing with a fiercely sinister formulaic in which supplies with constructive enlightenments.

Consisting of Foltath Eternum; who performs on vocals, guitars; the tambourine and even a buben, the flexible frontman diligently showcases stellar complexity on all fronts. “Two Worlds” implements a consistent sound production and songwriting originality that's fulfilling and memorable. Foltath formulates loud shrieks in his vocalization pretty much all throughout the record, and the dexterity on guitars efficiently mesmerizes me as the harmonic melodies and aggressive pulverizations in place execute with profuse sufficiency. “Genesis” makes use of these elements with exquisite manifestations as the tremolo, tambourine and buben grandiose in combination of Valea's keyboardist skills which add 70s esquire synthesizer components gracefully. There is a lot of discoveries to be found in “Another Realm” that will surprise you, as it did me - even on my first time around.

The Glow” brings more of the previously mentioned characteristics to light, in which flows with robust differentiates including a delightful acoustic passage - before the immense conclusion hastes with intensely thunderous riffs and pounding pummeling from drummer Ephemiral Gorth. “The Sea” technically progresses with advance craftsmanship, as Eugene on bass embellishes a tempo that sounds elegantly menacing. The organizations in the songs so far are prominently written, and are conceptually structured throughout – each member flamboyantly mechanizes their instruments with impressive grit. “Dreamcatcher” & “The Order Of Light” are the longest songs; at 10:11 & 10:33, and provide EORONT's peak moments. Incredible riff chugs and a doomy aerosphere, flourishes with phenomenal results – including a notably eccentric synthesizer component that sounded monumental.

My only gripe is probably lack of English vocals, who cares, though? This is Black Metal after all.

Overall – a release that I divulged in quite enjoyably. “Another Realm” shows that you can implement multiple magnitudes of musical orchestration, while sounding grand at the same time. Certainly one worth checking out, for all Metal maniacs alike!
