Cult Of Eibon – 'Black Flame Dominion' LP
140g black vinyl edition with insert limited to 500 copies
Formed in 2015, CULT OF EIBON are literally a band out of time, so richly and robustly authentic is their classic Greek black metal sound & at long last the debut album, 'Black Flame Dominion' emerges in 2021. Immediately, the listener is whisked to forgotten realms; the sorcery coursing through its atmospheres is potent, the heady, hazy potion pulsing with the same addicting, ageless black magick that made the early works of Rotting Christ and especially Varathron massively influential in Greece and far beyond. Indeed, THAT PULSE is what pulls the listener in and refuses to let go, that locked-in and hypnotic surge idiomatic of Hellenic classicism, as well as liberal layers of swelling synth to fully transport that listener to an archaic age. But, much as they mightily proved on Lycan Twilight Sorcery, CULT OF EIBON's Black Flame Dominion is no mere work of replication: one must truly LIVE THIS to be able to create it, and a bewitching, almost-(were)wolven identity all their own emerges. Or, put another way, the band's debut album is an authentically ancient-minded modern entry into that classic canon - no hyperbole, no trends!
