Ephel Duath - RePhormula (CD)

Ephel Duath
by David Kaluza at 28 February 2002, 12:14 AM

Ephel Duath is a 2 man black metal project from Italy, consisting of Davide Tiso and Guilano.
The music on Rephormula takes the same form as many other bands these days, namely avant-garde black metal. And that might just be the major problem with this release. While in itself, the songs might not be bad, the band somehow fails to really come up with anything new or spectacular to make them stand out from other releases.
The majority of songs are quite up-tempo, filled with lots of atmospheric keyboards, and, at their best, remind me of something emperor would've done a couple of years ago. Highlights for me include the two instrumentals Myriads and Falling and the outstanding Greyness grow already old. But, as said before, none of the songs would classify as bad. The only thing really annoying me about this band is the use of a drum-computer, (why oh why ? Why not use a session drummer instead).
All in all, it's not a bad release, and If you are a fan of this type of music, I would certainly recommend checking the album out, but if not, there are probably lots of similar sounding, better bands around which you might try out first.
