Eulen / Press

“Eulen is one of the most successful post-black/doom bands in the middle-east and Syria. I was honored that they agreed to elaborate on some of their views and journeys along the way in producing music and supporting their fellow metal-head fans and artists in the city.”

“The name itself would remind you with the tree of life, yet the music is far beyond the beginning of life, it represents the eager humans in quest of liberation, the weeping mothers of theirs and the children raised in hatred; also, the feelings of hate towards major entities, such as God. The history of mankind is also suggested, remembering man and woman’s creation since the ages of Adam and Eve.”

“Eulen is some dark stuff. Not really evil, just dark, cold sadness. It's a kind of black & doom hybrid, slow, mellow, and very melancholy. One track, "Desolate House" sees them break into some typical blast-beat driven black metal, but for the most part they stick to eerie sorrow, doomy slowness, and even a few post- elements find their way in with some subtlety. It's an interesting mix of delicate melodies and gritty, raw black metal riffing. If this album had, say, the same production values as something like Wolves In The Throne Room, this would an absolutely top-notch album.”

“Despite the album having little to no heavy metal moments, this EP is a huge step for Eulen and demands to be respected. It's a move that is only done by those bands with confidence and creativity, Eulen proved that it has both and showed that among the many Doom Metal bands in the Middle East, they are considered as one of the finest.”
