Dark Fortress - Eidolon

Posted on Friday, October 15, 2010

Even though this German Black Metal troupe have been at it for 14 years, my only prior exposure to them was a very mediocre Katatonia cover (“Endtime”) on a very mediocre Katatonia tribute CD (December Songs). Well, after listening to Eidolon on and off for about three days now, the only word that comes to mind is, you guessed it… mediocre. It’s not that it’s terrible. They do have a better sound, production, and approach than about 90% of the Black Metal I hear these days, but it’s not very memorable. Recycled bits of Emperor and Mayhem stirred in with second rate Dimmu Borgir and Naglfar just doesn’t cut it.
