EADEM - Luguber MLP
EADEM play something that could be labelled as traditional "free jam" black metal. Lyrically, the trio deal with sorcery, occultism, superstitions, depraved poetry, and alchoholism.
With two demos behind them, it is now up to the mini-album Luguber to portray the full strength of EADEM's provocative vision. In many ways parallel to their native Portugal's raw black metal scene and yet perpendicular all the same, Luguber takes the listener on a warped, wobbly ride deep into the depraved depths of EADEM's subconscious. Within that realm exist shadows that devour other shadows, each one more menacing than the next, but all seemingly moving with deceptive delicateness - forceful, for sure, but always with an elusiveness/aloofness that's stultifyingly out of one's grasp. Clanging chords and mesmerizing melodies, akimbo shapes thrown by obscene structures, all amidst a soundfield that's incredibly dynamic, even within such ghostly rawness: Luguber is truly hallucinogenic, and daringly so.
