Imagine for a moment a woman of infinite class that walks you to the top of his oversized heels, impeccable maintenance. It arrives at your height and loose a loud burp. The woman remains beautiful, but it still loses a bit of glamor. Another similar situation: you are in the restaurant and you ordered a " medallion partridge in sauce juice frozen truffle ", it throws. The server brings you,...

The Ekove Efrits are a project atmospheric / post-rock led by multi-instrumentalist N. Saman coming from Tehran, Iran, returning to the market in December 2013 with their fourth album, "Nowhere."

A disc that continues the evolution and maturation of the songwriting of this composer through fifty minutes dark music, enveloping, mysterious and atmospheric, steeped in the tradition of bla...

The Iranian Count de Efrit himself says that he sees its origins in Black / Gothic Metal, which is increasingly open to influences from post-rock, doom, experimental and ambient music over the years. These are already clearly heard on the debut album 'Suicidal Rebirth', will be on the following works 'Hypermnesia' and 'The Conceptual Horizon' reinforced, and 'Nowhere' is a logical conti...

Nowhere is the 4th full length album of the Iranian one man atmospheric band Ekove Efritz, a project of solo musician Saman N.  While I am not conversant with any of his works, I am quickly getting acquainted with his grand talent of musical creations.  I now stand curious as I am reluctant into diverging my ears into his earlier works with the his music after listening to this cinematic piece of artful music.  Ekove E...

"Nowhere" is the new full-length of this strange one-man-band from Teheran, Iran. This album offers ten songs packed into 52 minutes that are hard to compare with any other bands. An interesting combination of quiet melodies with strong drums and bass guitar over which are entwined depressive male vocals and angelic female vocals which were sung by Megan Tassaker (Avrigus, Lycanthia). On the album you can hear a lot ...

Ekove Efrits hails from Tehran, Iran, and is the primary band of Count De Efrit, who is also the sole member of Silent Path. The difference between the two is that Silent Path is more depressive and droning, where Ekove Efrits is far more experimental. I’m tempted to call the band’s style Post-Black Metal, but I don’t know if that would fit, either. This is some weird shit. You can tell the influence of bands like Burzum a...

Today, the review will look back on one very pleasant surprise with which you at the very end of the article recommend that you immediately went to get it, because it's just worth it ... but I probably should not say this early, huh?

Let's start again and slowly but fairly simple question. How much do you know metal bands from Iran? I have no doubt that among you will find connoisseurs who tell m...

So here we have the third full-length by the Iranian one-man band Ekove Efrits called Nowhere. Predecessor Conceptual Horizon took me completely by surprise with its utterly original mash-up of ambient, doom, black metal trip-hop and more and left me almost without words to describe it. So what to expect from Nowhere? Once again a lot of styles are employed, ambient, almost gothic female vocals, minimalist piano, flurries of ...
