Ewigheim are a band from Germany that has been featured before in this zine and plays a dark form of gothic metal that is slightly influenced by black metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "24 7" which was released by Massacre Records.
A very old school gothic rock sound starts off the album along with some depressing sounding keyboards and a few seconds later melodic clean singing starts becoming a huge part of the recording along with the music getting more heavier and adding in a metal sound that they also mix with goth.
On some of the later tracks a good amount of industrial influences are added into the bands musical style along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and when whispers are added into the recording the music starts having more of a black metal feeling and when solos and leads are added into the music they add in more of melodic gothic metal/rock sound when they are utilized.
Some of the later tracks bring in spoken word parts and traces of neo-classical music and after the first half of the album which is all originals they go into the second parts which is all cover tunes and do their own versions of songs from Laibach, Sots, Soko Friedhof, Neue Weltordung, and Bluter. and they go for more of a goth/industrial direction on these tracks while also remaining true to their metal roots.
Ewigheim creates a very interesting sounding recording with this album bringing in 6 of their own songs that continue the dark, gothic metal sound of previous recording while also bringing in cover tunes that also show their industrial roots, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in German and cover dark themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Ewighem and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Tanz um dein Leben" "Gloria" "Heimweg" and "Morgenrot". 8 out of 10.
