Metal Blast is happy to present the premiere of the song “Thus Spewed Thy Infectious Reign” by Éohum, taken from their upcoming debut album Revelations, Aurora Of An Epoch, which will be out on April 7th, 2015
Formed in 2010, Éohum (pronounced ee-o-um), the brainchild of guitarist Jeremy Perkins, devote themselves to creating a relentless, and crushing style of doom metal with plenty of black metal influences to go around. The kind of thing that fans of Emperor, Immortal Therion, Dimmu Borgir, Deicide, Neurosis or Behemoth will certainly appreciate.
In this debut release Perkins is joined by a collective of musicians , including guest vocals from Matt McGachy (Cryptopsy), Lana Edwards, Phillippe Rieder, Nick Wybo (ex-Vinyl Hero) on drums, Annie Perreault on the French Horn/Trumpet, Sylvain Dumont on guitar, and James Heymans, plus a live line up that features drummer Simon Mackay (The Agonist) and vocalist Barrie Butler (ex Tard).
About their music, Perkins has said
“I like to have guests and friends from the scene on the album it gives a great touch and makes our stuff evolve and progress tremendously. The album should be received as fresh meat on the slab, especially with a French horn with groove doom low ends that makes the Éohum sound stand out.”“Musically ‘Revelations, Aurora Of An Epoch’ gives a great opportunity to taste a different aspect where you can chill out to a doom song and get up and swing your 4 foot long hair to our blackest riffs a second later in this relentless progression. Expect a groove and good sounding black metal without the new age tech-metal touches, we stick to the root, but with a better sound than black metal is usually attributed too and some doom to make your day.”
As for “Thus Spewed Thy Infectious Reign”, Perkins added
It starts with a salad of Doom riffs, gutturals and cleans, slowly progressing mid-way through the song to a relentless black, death anthem. Transitioning between both worlds this song has the capacity to keep the attention of an array of metal lovers. Type of song you want to put on a loop or that haunts your conscious a couple days! Lyrically speaks of our point of no return as a species, unless we awaken from our deep sleep and brings to surface the many coma-tic ways of our times. One of my personal favorites from Revelations, Aurora Of An Epoch“
