Storming out of Greece and banishing as many souls to the netherworld as possible along the way is Cult of Eibon. Lycan Twilight Sorcery is their newest blackened offering that features seven total songs of black metal witchery. With their traditional black metal sound Cult of Eibon provides you with a dark, twisting and evil listen. Lycan Twilight Sorcery seems to have bubbled up from about twenty years ago only to surface now to spread darkness and fear across as many lands as possible.
Cult of Eibon hit you with a sinister and ominous opening before having you dive head first into their blackened maelstrom. From the intro on Cult of Eibon pummel you with ripping and skin crawling black metal without many pauses in between. However, as harsh and punishing as it can be, this release certainly is enchanting and captivating all at the same time. Cult of Eibon provides you with a dark, foggy and almost mystical atmosphere that draws you more and more into the darkness the more that you listen.
The run times on this mini album are fairly long with several over the five minute mark and a few over the seven minute mark and that give you plenty of content to listen to. With these longer run times you really are in for a black metal treat as it gives Cult of Eibon more time to show off their black metal prowess. Each song is crafted very well and even though they are in the vein of traditional black metal, Cult of Eibon adds their own soul devouring twists to keep their sound new and all their own.
Lycan Twilight Sorcery is a great mini album that provides you not only with harsh and punishing black metal but much more. This release is filled with variety, atmosphere, spot on musicianship and more which gives you an entertaining listen that you can listen to over and over again. This album pulses with darkness and crawls with evil and is easy to get lost in until you start playing the songs in your head on repeat. This is a great release and enough to fill your black metal appetite until a proper full length is to appear.
Take a listen to The Dweller In The Woods.
