Jim Panse While Collapse is more or less ok I can see that I will listen to Darkness quite often in the future. What an epic piece of music. Favorite track: Darkness.

Metallurgical Fire Marche Funebre is one of the top bands in this genre. They compose great songs with heaviness and complexity. Favorite track: Darkness.
Andy thumbnail
Andy Don't normally do doom. But this I can do quite easily. The beauty and emotion suddenly punctured by total doom really works. Favorite track: Collapse.

Mike Liassides Possibly best considered as an introductory package to both bands, this split gives a showcase to their capabilities and styles.

I had a dream, which was not all a dream. The bright sun was extinguish'd, And the stars did wander darkling In the eternal space, Rayless, and pathless, and the icy earth Swung blind and blackening in the moonless air; Morn came and went—and came, and brought no day, And men forgot their passions in the dread Of this their desolation; And all hearts were chill'd Into a selfish prayer for light: And they did live by watchfires—and the thrones, The palaces of crowned kings— The huts, the habitations of all things which dwell, Were burnt for beacons; cities were consum'd, And men were gather'd round their blazing homes To look once more into each other's face; Happy were those who dwelt within the eye Of the volcanos, and their mountain-torch: A fearful hope was all the world contain'd; Forests were set on fire—but hour by hour They fell and faded—and the crackling trunks Extinguish'd with a crash—and all was black. All earth was but one thought—and that was death Immediate and inglorious; And the pang of famine fed upon all entrails— Men died, and their bones were tombless as their flesh; The world was void, The populous and the powerful was a lump, Seasonless, herbless, treeless, manless, lifeless— A lump of death—a chaos of hard clay. The rivers, lakes and ocean all stood still, And nothing stirr'd within their silent depths; Ships sailorless lay rotting on the sea, And their masts fell down piecemeal: as they dropp'd They slept on the abyss without a surge— The waves were dead; the tides were in their grave, The moon, their mistress, had expir'd before; The winds were wither'd in the stagnant air, And the clouds perish'd; Darkness had no need of aid from them— She was the Universe.


***Teaser video for the album:


"Collapse" and "Darkness"; two facets of sorrow, two sides of extreme doom metal, two long songs combined into one monumental split album. England's Eye of Solitude offers "Collapse," a marching funeral doom track shrouded in a thick smoky atmosphere, and carrying the grandeur of the band's latest offerings. Of equal crushing proportion, Belgium's Marche Funèbre presents "Darkness," an epic doom-death track that combines their signature blend of riff and growl, along with powerful melodies and clean vocal passages. Clocking at approximately 30 minutes, this dual offering should please fans of extreme doom metal, and mark a new chapter in the lives of both bands as they embark on their first North American tour.

This Eye of Solitude/Marche Funèbre split album will be released by Hypnotic Dirge Records and Cimmerian Shade Recordings, in a 6-panel digipack edition of 500 copies, on February 22, 2018. The bleak artwork was created by multi-instrumentalist Daniel Neagoe (Eye of Solitude, Clouds, Shape of Despair, Pantheist).

The cult of sorrow has never been so vivid.
