Another enigmatic work from this enigmatic band, who are so kvlt they don't even list pseudonyms for the unnamed band members. I thought their debut Ea Tasse was a masterful exercise in Funeral Doom magic, and this album picks right up where that one left off. Ea II contains two songs, which are so mysterious they don't even have titles. I mean, one would think having all lyrics written in a made-up language would be obscure enough, but no, Ea don't even name their songs.

Two tracks still means over 45 minutes of slow Doom crushing accented with powerful keyboard melodies and deep atmosphere. This is orchestral, heavy, and involving music that draws you inexorably into its moody and ancient landscape. Vocals are sparse and mixed very low, so mostly this is almost like an instrumental Doom album. The sound and quality are very close to the original album, so if you like Funeral Doom, then this is not a disc to pass up. Powerful, arcane, and upliftingly gloomy. The soundtrack to crumbling monuments and mist-shrouded ruins.
