CeetjeBeetje This album is kind of an odd one to me, but it's a good kinda odd! Love the contrast between the harsh vocals and beautiful clean female vocals. Favorite track: Sword and Wound.

Andy Hybrid of hybrids Ekove Efrits' Nowhere is a fantastic listen. I love good synth and dance music and as far as I know this is the only band who put it together with both dirty and clean singing. The female vocal is really special and I am enjoying this listening experience. Favorite track: One Truth, One Confession.

Jarak This album heavily features vocals by Megan from Lycanthia (the female vocalist on Oligarchy), which is a very good thing. This album is somewhat different from other EE works, and is a lot more 'doomy', but it works well here. Very enjoyable. Favorite track: Parallel Presence.

Jdude Effortlessly pushing boundaries with a unique and atmospheric sound. A hidden work of art. This demands a lot of attention, but it is a rewarding experience! Favorite track: Parallel Presence.

Gina Jordan Must listen to full song to get why I dig it all. This 34 seconds is just an intro that might mislead one into thinking their music is scenic. The full song is banging hard goodness. Favorite track: Belong to Nowhere.

Forget the everything This circle is a game I'm tired of playing But the role plays again It feels like a dreaming Where sirens paint the silence (but) we are talking through the eyes In a maze full of distance I want to scape Far away We lost among the shadows The poison crawls through the vein That's more like a nightmare That's more like a nightmare I want to scape Far away We lost among the shadows The poison crawls through the vein
3.
Ashes have eclipsed the sun Like a night sky With no stars to shine This place that I once knew I see with my eyes But don't recognise Nothing can prepare you for The chaos that surrounds me now As monsters crawl out from the destruction Monsters bare the resemblance Of people that I used to know But where are you now? I can't find you I don't know what I would do I can't go on without you I can't see you I can't hear you Beneath the ringing silence defeaning I'm helplessly searching The chaos for a sign of you I feel that frozen side While the mirror shows my empty eyes I feel the muted words And the colors slowly fading away Day by day and one by one They gather by hatred,to kill the light I feel the silent screams And all the pains that pull us down

I've found a gate behind the trees Sourunded by sands And yells of clodest winds Apart from time... Once again the bird's sign For faded dreams While the gate shines as the moon I see Forgotten side The side of wilest scenes On the path of fallen leaves And the sound of silent screams Has painted sky cryptic dark A temptation, a calm temptation invites me inside These bordes killing me, another sickness of being mortal Now I don't need more, I don't need more roles to play The gate shows me the way, the way of disolving in time It's just what I feel but always and ever denied It's just another game but always and ever denied It's the side of wilest scenes On the path of fallen leaves And the sound of silent screams Has painted sky cryptic dark It's the side of wilest scenes On the path of fallen leaves And the sound of silent screams Has painted sky cryptic dark Deep down it hurts When you find out wings in chaines You just wanna stop this fucking game To leave the lies behind the gate All these changes bring me a sign When the world is beeliding (by) infected thoughts Lost in madness by worthless minds I'm just seeking, just seeking the life Once again the birds are singing And the moonlight's dancing in the naked sky It feels like all the beauties calling So tempting, beyond the gate Can you imagine how I feel We never were what we used to be Just break chains and cross the gate...fly It's the only key
6.
By frozen seas of shapless feelings Our life's perception has been obscured Infinity, the matter of progression While the greedy hands embrace the guns yet We are infinitesimal within the infinite Dimension... Witness only to a mere instant of eternity Dimension... Insignificant among the absolute, we are We cannot control that which we cannot even conprehend Oblivion, that we hate, we can't change out fate We are bound by our state and we cant change the past We cannot undo all the damage we've done, condemnation

Once and just for once I'll tell you how deep it hurts While memories scream in pain My wasted dreams Echos of time I'm Walking the fields On the path you fade Your sword plays with wounds And battle remains just the same I guess I ve seen behind the scene Where pain's feeding this tragedy The more I shut my eyes The less I see, the less I believe I wonder how deep it hurts While nothing ever changes As long as pain remains I lay down rules again To make a chance I lay down rules again My wasted dreams Echos of time I'm Walking the fields On the path you fade Your sword plays with wounds And battle remains just the same I guess I ve seen behind the scene Where pain's feeding this tragedy The more I shut my eyes The less I see ,the less I believe ( Persian Lyrics ) My wasted dreams Echos of time I'm Walking the fields On the path you fade Your sword plays with wounds And battle remains just the same I guess I ve seen behind the scene Where pain's feeding this tragedy The more I shut my eyes The less I see ,the less I believe

about

Ekove Efrits, the atmospheric project of Saman N. hailing from Tehran, Iran returns with a follow-up to the 2011 album “Conceptual Horizon.”With “Nowhere”, the fourth full-length album from Ekove Efrits, Saman shows a continual evolution in his songwriting and recording abilities, not deviating far from the sound and identity of previous Ekove Efrits albums but offering fifty-one minutes of twisted, dark, sombre, and atmospheric music intertwined with harsh black metal stylistics, female vocals, and electronic/trip-hop elements, with an added cinematic and film-score like quality which has not been present to this degree in any previous Ekove Efrits album. Certainly a tour de force for this unique project, “Nowhere” will deliver a total trip for the mind and promises to be a visual experience as well as a sonic one! This will certainly appeal to fans of Ulver, Manes, and netra, among others. Another interesting element on this album is the collaboration with Megan Tassaker, vocalist of the Australian Gothic Doom band Lycanthia whose vocals appear throughout the album and really add to the ethereal and melancholic sound. Mastered by Barry Gardner in the UK and with contributions on the album art front from surrealist Norwegian artist Jessica Enneby Eldenstjärna in addition to Saman who is a graphic artist by trade, this album aims to be a complete immersive experience.
