Eonian are a solo project from Spain with the help of 11 session musicians from different parts of the world that plays a symphonic and melodic mixture of black and metal and this is a review of his self released 2021 ep "The Nomad" which will be released in June.
Dark soundscapes start off the ep before going into more of a heavier and yet melodic direction while all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they also add in a great amount of melody and the vocals are a mixture of black metal screams and death metal growls.
Symphonic elements are also added into the heavier sections of the songs while the music also mixes in a lot of orchestra and choirs. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some blast beats and tremolo picking also being added into the faster sections of the tracks as well as some violins also being utilized in some parts of the music.
Eonian plays a musical style that take s symphonic black metal and mixes it with melodic death metal to create a sound of his own. The production sounds very professional while t he lyrics cover dark and mythological themes.
In my opinion Eonian are a very great sounding symphonic and melodic mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Versus The Titan" and "Shores of A Lost Sea". 8 out of 10.
