Le groupe portugais de Black Metal atmosphérique et dissonant, Benthik Zone sortira le 28 Janvier prochain son troisième album, εἴδωλον (Eidolon) via Onism Productions. Il sera disponible K7, Cd et digital.
Le label explique le concept derrière cet album au nom intriguant : "“εἴδωλον” establishes a parallel between classical antiquity and contemporaneity by creating a poetic dialogue with various myths, stories speaking about fabulous creatures, humans and gods. It celebrates the beauty of metamorphosis and hybridism, which goes from the human being to the vegetal and animal life but carries the weight of that transition process and its consequences in the bodies of the “εἴδωλον” characters. The latent Romanticism that goes together with the music is immense, within a context in which the subject's sexual impulses, of death and of closing inside the subject's self, take hold of the body and are skin-tight, being music the means through which it is possible to communicate the unconscious and bring to the surface all this inner rampaging. Towards the exoticism of the female body and the bliss granted by these enchanting and enigmatic characters, we welcome the detailed representations that explode into sensuality and promote a state of constant and involuntary ecstasy or narcosis. We cling to a perennial, pure and living energy, to the beauty of enlightenment and concurrently meet these elements with what is sick, frightening and deceiving, a provocation that aims to penetrate the depths of our being and the rubble of a distant submerged past."
