HOWLS OF EBB - Vigils Of The Third Eye 2xLP
“Vigils…” realizes its potency through a combination of countlessly-varied riffs, tempo changes, and layered musical textures. Each song is marked by notably unorthodox and unpredictable progressions that can have a very disquieting effect on the listener. The guitars often move in a schizophrenic fashion from rapid-fire, galloping riffs to darkly serene but disturbing passages and back, without the slightest hint of a disconnect in the song’s composition. The riffs are often executed with a staccato-like picking technique which combines perfectly with the drums, thus accentuating the percussive element of the higher-tempo portions of the music. Moreover, in comparison to most death metal bands, Howls of Ebb relies somewhat less on effects like distortion and reverb, which serves to create a starker contrast between the notes/chords and the open spaces between them, which further augments the disorienting effect of the song structures and progressions. The synthesis of these traits makes “Vigils of the 3rd Eye” a product of a band who defies the conventions of its subgenre and thus earns its recognition as a modern-day innovator of death metal. -C. Conrad
