A terrifyingly dark and demented album, skilfully combining caustic, abrasive and tormented black metal with demonic post – hardcore, Industrial and noise.
EDEN is not just a band, but an artistic initiative blending sonic and visual catharsis in order to explore lunacy, terror and fear through the use and manipulation of unusual mediums, including recycled materials, bowed guitars and prepared piano altered with bolts and screws.
A suffocating nightmare made by layers of bone-shattering sounds and told by a monstrous voice lurking in the dark and screaming in madness – “The First Circle” is an uncompromising showcase of psychopathy in music, and a truly disquieting and frightening listening experience.
Addictively dark, fiercely experimental, noisy and just purely extreme: EDEN’s debut album is the sound of the end of time as told by a deranged mind.
