Ephemeros/All Hail Corrosion/Seventh Rule Recordings/2013 CD Review


  Ephemeros  are  a  band  from  Portland  Oregon  this  plays  a  very  heavy  and  atmospheric  form  of  funeral  doom  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2013  album  "All  Hail  Corrosion"  which  was  released  by  Seventh  Rule  Recordings.

  Drums  range  from  slow  to  mid  paced  playing  with  no  fast  drumming  or  blast  beats  being  present  on  this  recording,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  are  coming  out  of  the  guitars.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow  to  mid  paced  funeral  doom  metal  riffs  that  are  very  heavy  and  dark  sounding  along  with  some  melody  and  atmospheric  clean  playing  being  thrown  into  the  riffing  at  times,  while  the  lead  guitars  when  they  are  utilized  are  very  dark  and  melodic  sounding  doom  metal  guitar  solos  and  leads.

  Vocals  are  mostly  deep funeral  doom/death  metal  growls  with  some  high  pitched  screams  that  bring  a  black  metal  feeling  to  the  recording,  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark  and  depressive  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  strong,  powerful,  heavy  and  dark  sound  with  the  songs  being  long  and  epic  in  length.

  In  my  opinion  Ephemeros  are  a  very  great  sounding  funeral  doom  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of t his  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Stillborn  Workhouse".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
