It’s difficult to be creative when black metal is the court where you play and many have failed in their attempting to achieve any kind of relevance. However, when listening to the early tracks in “(Un)reality”, I totally reckoned Epitimia’s fourth album was somewhat special.

It’s true that a double album of ambient black metal seems little fun on paper, but calling “(Un)reality” just that hardly makes justice t...

Surprising is to hear from Epitimia. For since the Russians about two years ago with Faces of Insanity published an album that although courage proved to experiment by post-rock, folk metal and depressive black metal at each other, let the but in the end in itself did not seem conclusive, one makes at (un) reality everything right now. All the more surprising, because you get here directly ...

The joys of the Internet age have done many things, for better or worse.  Put one in the win category though for simple distribution access for smaller bands through sites like Bandcamp.  While foraging through the massive amounts of material there, occasionally you can find a real diamond in the rough.  Epitimia is the latest diamond discovered by this writer, a Russian black metal band that explores post-rock, ambient, electronics, and...

In all honesty, I became hugely interested in Epitimia just from hearing the few taster tracks from this album on Hypnotic Dirge's Bandcamp page a few months back. With just those few tracks, and from the description of what was promised from this extremely ambitious double album, I knew something special was on its way here. I wasn't disappointed either, what we have here is something both special and unique, something whi...
