Eosphorus (Greek: Εωσφόρος Eôsphoros), also known as Phosphorus (Greek: Φωσφορος Phôsphoros) is the Greek god or spirit of the morning star (i.e. planet-Venus) he is better known by his Roman name (Lucifer). Eosphorus is a band from Sweden playing melodic black metal.
Swedish melodic black metal ocmbo Eosphorus re-newed their collaboration with Wormholedeath for the release of their EP From Fire Into Birth, which was available on July 29th, 2022.
The band speaking of the album stated: After almost 8 years of working on other projects and records, new material has surfaced from Eosphorus! This new EP saw the beginning of its creation shortly after the release of Winds Of Apep but we just didn’t have the time to complete it until now. We think it will be worth the wait for those who want to hear a more developed, more sinister Eosphorus.
With this release we are sparking yet another rebirth of this band, with more material already on hold and waiting to take form it’s only a matter of sorting out logistics and time to have it manifest into something great. Still breathing, still brewing…
A big thanks to Wormholedeath for wanting to work with us again, and believing in our music. They are a rare breed in this industry and it shows in their devotion and care for their bands.
Eosphorus is a band from Stockholm, Sweden founded in 2006-2008 by Markus Svantesson(Bödel) on lead guitar and Oliver Spetse (ex-Bödel) on guitars and vocals. While in the early years of the band, members have come and gone with only Oliver and Markus still remaining as original members and founders. The core line-up of Eosphorus was established when Joel Haegerström(Purified By Pain, Bödel) joined on bass guitar and Victor Parri(Desolator, Hadriel, Isole, Neuronaut, The Curse, Valkyrja) joined on drums in 2010. There have been no line-up changes since then.
With their first album “We who’ve seen the darkness”, which reminisces of Dissection, Watain, and older black metal with melodic passages, they set their sights on making the album in a way that best embodies the band, an album that would later be called “Winds of Apep”. Released by WormholeDeath in 2014 it received critical acclaim by journalists and listeners alike for its melodic nature and shifting between fast and slow passages and variety in tracks.
