EYE OF SOLITUDE and FAAL to release untitled split EP
Two of Europe's most promising next-gen Funeral Doom/Death Metal bands, EYE OF SOLITUDE and FAAL have joined forces for a split EP of epic proportions.
The untitled EP, which features a previously unreleased track from each band that will forever remain exclusive to this split, will be offered as a three-panel deluxe DigiSleeve CD and digital download. The CD version is strictly limited to 500 collectors-edition copies that includes a series of photos from French photographer Animalerrant.
EYE OF SOLITUDE's contribution, the aptly-titled funeral march "Obsequies," is the stylistic missing link between their future classic Canto III album (which was included on numerous 'Best of 2013' lists) and last year's single-track, 50-minute monster Dear Insanity. This is Funeral Doom/Death at its finest!
FAAL's "Shattered Hope" sees the Netherlands-based unit blends elements of old-school Doom with contemporary Gothic/Dark metal for monstrous results.
The split is now streaming in full at both Zero Tolerance Magazine and MetalOrgie.com. Listen now at the links below:
Kaotoxin Records will release this untitled split EP on September 18 and can be purchased alone or as part of the "EYE OF SOLITUDE CD pack," which includes the Canto III and Sui Caedere albums, along with the Dear Insanity EP. Pre-orders are now available at www.kaotoxin.com.
