Type: EP

Release: 15th December 2019

Runtime: 23:00

Label: unsigned

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Combination of Iron Maiden-ish influenced riffs, plenty of powerful melancholic (harmonization), clean to harsh cords/riffing, fast-powerfull fret-board solos, with the additional use of a psaltery or use of keys that give the impression of a psaltery, with ravaging pickings of the bass.

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: Keeping the same kind of powerful harsh, low deep growls, from the previous album.

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Epic mid-tempo drumming with a melodic & rhythm feel.

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: Eluvian, yet again have delivered us another epic album, but this time around, 'The Doom of Edendalk' is a better roll of dice then the 'Prophetic Flame' don't get me wrong the Prophetic Flame was an epic and fantastic album [I loved it], but this one is more a grand scale in the narrative side. The band, themselves have added more/different elements and musical aspects in the EP, (such as) medieval/folkish sound/themes within the music, but on the plus side, Eluvian have retained their dark (fantasy) catchy, brutal, melodic vibe, (some black metal & NWOBHM influences) with melodies of somewhere between melodic death metal and death-doom with a fusion of (some-what slow/mid-tempo but brutal/massive sound!).


**A overall of epic masterpiece* * brilliant/enjoyable *

*Awe-Inspiring from start to end* *just magically & entertaining*

 A magical melodic death metal 

 a fusion of medieval/folkish music! 

 of a dark epic tale 

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁: 𝕬𝖗𝖙𝖜𝖔𝖗𝖐: Is an interpretation of an epic/role-playing tale, with the first album, having this dark conjurer seeking something or a great city? looking through the 'Prophetic Flame'… Now (moving onto this next chapter) we can see, the same dark conjurer has found the city! (guessing this magnificent city is called 'Edendalk'?) Now Edendalk is under siege; the question is what will happen next, what is the evil conjurer is after?

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑: 𝕺𝖚𝖙𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖉𝖎𝖓𝖌: For me has to be the additional psaltery sound efforts & the artwork.

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖎𝖘𝖑𝖎𝖐𝖊: none!
