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.

Track Name: Public Theatre
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
Track Name: Parallel Presence
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
Track Name: Blessed by Nature
(Instrumental)
Track Name: One Truth, One Confession
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
Track Name: Infinitesimal
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
Track Name: Metamorphosis
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Sword and Wound
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
Track Name: At the Gates of Oblivion
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Belong to Nowhere
(Instrumental)
