DIGITAL RELEASE: Eave - Banners to the Moonswept

Posted by Nick Skog on Thursday, January 31, 2019 Under: Eave
Weaving black metal riffs over a phantasmagorical blackgaze shroud, "Banners to the Moonswept" serves as a perfect introduction to the sound of Eave, a post-black metal band from Portland. Maine.

Having previously released a demo, a full-length and a split album, Eave returns with a new EP marking a turning point in the band's sound and acting as a prelude to their forthcoming full-length album.



Sometimes aggressive, other times pensive, but always hypnotic, "Banners to the Moonswept" is chock full of monumental riffs over its short run time, well-mixed with engaging drums, audible bass, and a couple melancholic synth lines over which distressed vocals convey a sense of pain, anguish, and catharsis. On "Banners to the Moonswept", Eave perfectly encapsulates the divergent emotions and depth of post-black metal

Recommended for fans of Falls of Rauros, Numenorean, Lantlôs, Les Discrets, Heretoir, and Violet Cold.

The album was previously self-released by the band on December 29, 2019. 
"and now the torches are growing old
under time worn and rock-ribbed fold"
