Eorant are a band from the Siberian region of Russia that has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays an atmospheric form of black metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Gods have No Home" which was released as a joint effort between Casus Belli Musica and Beverini.
Nature sounds and field recordings start off the album before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. The riffs also bring in a lot of melody along with the vocals being mostly grim sounding black metal screams and most of the tracks are also very long and epic in length.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while one song also adds in a brief use of violins. When keyboards are utilized they also give the songs more an an atmospheric yet epic feeling and the solos and leads are also done in a very melodic style.
Acoustic guitars can also be heard on one of the tracks along with the flutes also adding in elements of folk music when they are utilized briefly on a couple of tracks as well as one song also introducing tambourine's onto the recording, all of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them.
One of the later songs is also an instrumental and as the album progresses a brief use of melodic vocals can also be heard. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover legends, journeys, ceremonies, rituals, fantasy and nature themes which also comes from the writings of Russian poet 'Max Voloshin'.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Eoront and if you are a fan of atmospheric black metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Wormwood" and "The Midday Herbs". 8 out of 10.
