Spoken word samples start off the ep and they also give the songs a ritualistic feeling before adding in a heavier musical sound while also mixing in avant garde elements and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the solos and leads also bring in more of a chaotic sound to the songs.
Whispers can be heard at times and they also add in death metal growls at times and the music also adds in distorted drones at times and there are also grim black metal screams can be heard in certain sections of the recording and the guitar riffs also mix in a good amount of morbid sounding melodies and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and blast beats are also added into the faster sections of the songs.
Howls Of Ebb takes a very dark and progressive style of death metal and adds in a touch of black metal along with a great amount of avant garde, drone and experimental elements to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very dark while the lyrics cover voyeurism, the dark void and beyond.
In my opinion Howls of Ebb are a very great sounding mixture of experimental, avant garde and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Standing On Bedlam, Burning In Bliss". 8 out of 10.
