A bunch of talented musicians are gathered in the atmospheric depressive black metal band Ezkaton. Ezkaton stated about idea of the new album Sheen And Misery, «Post-apocalypse, as a consequence of the existence of mankind, a world created by people kills the creators themselves. Destruction, the power of fire and radiation, drought, infection, all this gradually comes to our world and kills us». Their sophomore album will be released on monday actually! Ezkaton is probably for fans of band as Shining, Nocturnal Depression and Forgotten Tumb. The You Tube link is from their first album Plague For The Empires: Time, because there are no You Tube link from the new album.
Ezkaton delivers a healthy dose of haunting atmosphere, decadence, grimness and disappointment on the new album. The blend of post black metal and raw depressive black metal is very intriguing. The music is very intense, with angst laden vocal and there are a tons of melancholic moments and emptiness, sorrow, sadness and feelings of isolation.
