Bloody-Disgusting has teamed up with Montreal, QC doom/black metal band Éohum to bring you the exclusive song premiere of “Equatorial Rains”, which comes from the upcoming debut album Revelations, Aurora of An Epoch (out April 7th).
The track begins with an eerily off-kilter clean riff that is overlaid with a war thirsty horn melody. It quickly descends into Burzum-esque ferocity, blasting forth like a battle hymn to rally the troops.
Guitarist Jeremy Perkins states:
Equitorial Rains is a power house of voice and riffs, a great blend of black, doom and death metal in one track. The vocals are sublime by Matt McGachy and the song itself rings in your head for days. A hypnotic blend of shredding riffs and an array of new ideas for metal, with its uplifting horns. Lyrically this song could be our manifesto ; speaking of humanities eco-genocidal ways, our path within ourselves to heal without a proclaimed savior and resolve a forgotten wound in our hearths, shedding light at the end of our “histories tunnel”.
Revelations, Aurora of An Epoch features a collective of musicians that includes guest vocals from Matt McGachy (Cryptopsy), Lana Edwards, Phillippe Rieder, Nick Wybo (ex-Vinyl Hero) on drums, Annie Perreault on French Horn/Trumpet, Sylvain Dumont on guitar, James Heymans on bass and Perkins himself on guitar plus a live line up that features drummer Simon Mackay (The Agonist) and vocalist Barrie Butler (ex-Tard).
You can pre-order Revelations, Aurora of An Epoch via Bandcamp.
