Releases February 22 2018
“Collapse”and “Darkness”; two facets of sorrow, two sides of extreme doom metal, two long songs combined into one monumental split album. England’s Eye of Solitude offers”Collapse,” a marching doom track shrouded in a thick smoky atmosphere, and carrying the grandeur of the band’s latest offerings. Of equal crushing proportion, Belgium’s Marche Funèbre presents “Darkness,” an epic doom-death track that combines their signature blend of riff and growl, along with powerful melodies and clean vocal passages.Clocking at approximately 30 minutes, this dual offering should please fans of extreme doom metal, and mark a new chapter in the lives of both bands as they embark on their first North American tour.
This Eye of Solitude/Marche Funèbre split album will be released by Hypnotic Dirge Records and Cimmerian Shade Recordings, in a 6-panel digipack edition of 500 copies, on February 22, 2018. The bleak artwork was created by multi-instrumentalist Daniel Neagoe (Eye of Solitude, Clouds, Shape of Despair, Pantheist).
The cult of sorrow has never been so vivid.
