Staff review by

France's Eibon is a Sludge Doom band that likes to take things nice and easy and post-rocky. Their self-titled EP was a smooth Sludge Doom ride, with titbits of Post-Rock and shizzle mixed in, creating an altogether wonderful scenery. A new opus dubbed Entering Darkness is now out. And you must check it out.

Staff pick by

15.02.2011 Seemingly every year Lucas stumbles on to some relatively obscure release that I otherwise would have missed, and said release blows me away, earning a spot towards the high rent district of my "best of" list for that year.

Eibon is this year's find. Blackened sludgedoom which oozes forth and drowns the listener in it's foul taint... but just enough mellow moments to allow you the occasional breath while it continues to constrict away, slowly sapping your life force.

I just finally got my copy today, so I'm pimping this one again, for the benefit(?) of those who missed the first time around.
