Common Eider, King Eider are a band from San Francisco, California that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of dark ambient, ritual and blackened drone and this is a review of their 2018 album "A Wound Of Body" which will be released in September by Cyclic Law.
An almost silent sound starts off the album before adding in field recordings while the music also incorporates a great amount of atmospheric soundscapes along with the songs also getting very ritualistic at times and when voices are utilized they bring in elements of black metal onto the recording.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great amount of ambient drones while all of the tracks are very long and epic in length along with the music also capturing a cavernous atmosphere as well as the music also having its distorted moments and most of the tracks are instrumentals.
Common Eider, King Eider creates another recording that remains true to their mixture of dark ambient, ritual and blackened drone and the production sounds very dark.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Common Eider, King Eider and if you are a fan of dark ambient, ritual and blackened drone, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Remembrance A Threnody" and "River of Blood". 8 out of 10.
