The Eyes Of Desolation – Awake In Dead EP
This quintet appropriately known as The Eyes Of Desolation play gothic metal, with plenty of melancholic guitar harmonies and dreadful vocal passages, which will make you look deep within yourself in search of truth.
“Awake In Dead” has plenty of influences from Katatonia, Type O Negative, My Dying Bride and The Sisters Of Mercy, with their amplified vocal and guitar driven gothic darkness. There are only four songs on this ep, but with 20 minutes of music, there’s enough darkness and sadness to fill your world to the top. There is no escaping The Eyes Of Desolation’s soul penetrating misery, and it’s something you’re bound to feel deep within your mind and soul.
“Crimson Sky” is the only track, which borders on melodic gothic metal and death metal, and it’s sure to alleviate all of your self-inflicting depression with just one listen.
The haunting clean, at times choir inspired crooning is so damn chilling, you’ll feel like as if you’re trapped in some fucking mental asylum you’ve created in your drug induced, fucked up mind. The four tracks on this album will totally rape your spirit in the name of the horned god standing at the pits of eternal damnation and suffering.
Personally, I’ll be listening to The Eyes Of Desolation during a violent lighting and thunderstorm on a hellish rainy night. At the end of the day, I am dying for an insane and chilling nightmare like “Awake In Dead”. Symbol Of Domination Sarjoo Devani
