I've always been a fan of the work of the Iranian Count The Efrit. The previous installments of this man were invariably a thick eight offered. In his latest work he seeks re-bounds and he combines with atmospheric black metal and doom metal loungy chillbient. This time gets goth singer Megan Tassaker assigned a major role, they often fill with her angelic vocals.

The contribution of Megan is positive...

Saman N and his atmospheric experimental black metal project Ekove Efrits is back with his newest masterpiece, the fourth full-length album “Nowhere“. This Iranian one man band from Tehran was formed back in 2001 and its first works were rooted in depressive black metal. The band has experimented a lot since its creation, something obvious in their debut album “Suicidal Rebirth” from 2008. The electronic / classica...

Ekove Efrits along with Silent Path are projects conceived by Iranian ‘Count De Efrit,’ or Saman N. I am not entirely sure if he operates from within Iran and if he does I am sure a certain amount of ambiguity is necessary especially as the strangely entitled Ekove Efrits essentially started out as a black metal project. Whilst some trappings of this style are at times incorporated on fourth full length Nowhere, musically thi...

Ekove Efrits is the project of Saman N, which makes here under the pseudonym Count of Efrits music since 2001. What makes this one-man-project is that it is in Iran, specifically in Tehran, is home. In four self-published demos and a split could look back to with "Suicidal Rebirth" 2008, the first and "Hypermnesia" 2010, the second long player saw the light of day, in between it still was a compil...

What's quite clear with Hypnotic Dirge Records is they don't particularly care for genre conventions so long as the music's good. Iranian one man project Ekove Efrits is no exception, a band that may be rooted in black metal but has branches reaching way beyond. On "Nowhere" trip hop, electronic and ambient music all blend in with black metal and while this is very much towards the atmospheric end of the black metal sp...

As always, HDR releases an album from a band that defies simple explanation. Ekove Efrits, a band I’ve been a fan of since they were first presented by HDR a few years ago, has dropped another atmospheric bomb on the world. It isn’t very different from what has been done by Ekove Efrits in the past, but it brings even more post black metal and doom elements into the mix, as well as some nice EBM and trip-hop. Amazing f...
