Additional info
Jewel case CD with 16-page booklet out on April 15 via I, Voidhanger Records. Vinyl and cassette out later via Nuclear War Now! Productions and Caligari Records, respectively.

Howls Of Ebb are a fine example of the growing tendency towards experimentation taking place right now not only in black metal, but in death metal as well. There's little that can be said about this album other than that it's a bizarre, stimulating journey into a blackened death whirlwind oozing of psychedelic bounce and eerie atmospheres. Say that doesn't sound fun and Yog-Sothoth will smack you with his tentacles.

Sing to the Old Ones.

Cool artwork and what a title! So Howls of Ebb-ish. Also, Is Pendlomic really a word?

Damn these guys are weird. Great song, love the slower, creepier pace through most of it.

I only listened to a few songs from this album but I expected something much crazier and aggressive than that, for something described as weird and labeled as Black/Death Metal.

It is weird, yes, but probably not as much as some make it sound.
And even if it is quite fast here and there and distorted, I find it rather biteless. Also, drums sound very fake and weak.
I will probably check it more thoroughly later but at the moment I'm not excited about it.

The couple of songs I heard are perhaps more Death than Black but they have BM influences.
This sounds much more BM to me than the only Anaal Nathrakh album I heard from start to end ("In The Constellation Of The Black Widow"). That didn't sound at all like BM to me but as a mix of Brutal Death Metal and grindcore. If their other albums are not more BM than ITCOTBW, I don't even know why Anaal Nathrakh is considered BM because there is so very little BM it doesn't worth talking about it.

Truly one of the best death metal records in the recent years. Damns these guys are crazy. This just shows how much we need psychedelic death metal.

Need to give this more attention. I don't think it'll top the previous EP though.

I missed out on a lot of new music and the last couple of days had some of the most intense listening sessions in my life This album was one of the highlights with how dirty, heavy and fucking crazy it is.

Listened to this one last night and I must say it still feels like one of the best blackened death metal albums of the decade.
