EWIGKEIT

Back To Beyond

(D.T.M. Productions)

Reviewed by : David Perri
Rating : 9.0

England’s EWIGKEIT has mostly flown under the radar despite a one-time record deal with Earache, an unfortunate turn of events given the level of boundary-pushing this one-man black metal band was engaged in. After a seven year hiatus, Ewigkeit (German for ‘eternity’) returned in 2012 and the result is the surprisingly impressive Back To Beyond, a record that is the most vital symphonic black performance since DIMMU BORGIR’s monumental Death Cult Armageddon. Though that last sentence might seem like hyperbole, especially given the fact that Ewigkeit doesn’t go to the same epic, forward-we-march-to-the-mourning-palace! places that Dimmu does, Ewigkeit has found an undeniably innovative way to express symphonic black metal, and that is a rare feat indeed. Taking black metal’s foundational pillars and then interspersing the aforementioned symphonic element, Ewigkeit also uniquely incorporates latter-day ULVER , melodic lead lines, and memorable choruses into the expertly written proceedings, creating a record that, out of nowhere, could compete for album of the year honours in a very, very crowded 2013 field. The sole negative here is the processed (especially the drums) and hazy production that could have benefitted from more clarity and sheen, especially given the future-is-now feeling of the entire album. Despite that, Back To Beyond is an unexpected success, one that shouldn’t be missed if you listen to SIGH or any other experimental black metal that isn’t afraid to sound like it gives a shit.
