Ekove Efrits is an Iranian Black Metal one man band which was formed by "Saman N " who goes by the pseudonym "Count De Efrit" in the cold winter days of 2005. In fact long before Ekove Efrits, in 2001 ,Count de Efrit recorded two songs that were released in March 2004, and January 2005 with a previous project called "Unholy Graves". These albums were self-released by Count De Efrit and were limited to 7 Copies only. Despite the very humble beginnings, this was to be the start of a musical journey that is now reaching its pinnacle in 2011.
Throughout the second half of 2010, Ekove Efrits worked on his third full-length album by the name of "Conceptual Horizon' which continued the progression of Ekove Efrits and proved to people the strength of the Iranian Black Metal scene and ultimately took the global black metal scene by pleasant surprise. In February 2011, Ekove Efrits signed a deal with Hypnotic Dirge Records to release "Conceptual Horizon' in July 2011.
Now here is "Nowhere." The fourth full-length album from Ekove Efrits with the presence of vocalist Megan Tassaker (Lycanthia, Avrigus) With "Nowhere", Saman shows a continual evolution in his songwriting and recording abilities, not deviating far from the sound and identity of previous Ekove Efrits albums but offering fifty-one minutes of twisted, dark, sombre, and atmospheric music intertwined with harsh black metal stylistics, female vocals, and electronic/trip-hop elements, with an added cinematic and film-score like quality which has not been present to this degree in any previous Ekove Efrits album. Certainly a tour de force for this unique project, “Nowhere” will deliver a total trip for the mind and with its cinematic qualities promises to be a visual experience in addition to a sonic one!
