Vocalist Okkulto played his last gig with German blackened thrashers Desaster in 2001 in front of 20,000 people. After that he decided to leave the band for personal reasons plus the fact that he was completely fed up with everything the music business stood for back in those days. To make the biography short, Okkulto regained his hunger for creating music after many years of absence from the (underground) Metal scene. The final line-up took form in 2014 with Okkulto on vocals, Aethon on axe, Nimetön on drums and last but not least, Magma on bass.
Eurynomos' debut 3-track 7-inch release, titled Unchained from the Crypt, brings its listeners back to the early 80s, the obscure, darker side. There are hints of Mercyful Fate, Venom, Whiplash and perhaps Griffin in their sound, which is both harsh and mean but at the same time, very melodic. It reeks of denim, Metal, spikes and bullet belts and clearly pays homage to the mysterious and obscure side of early Heavy Metal. Blackened Heavy Metal would be a fitting term to describe their old school sound.
This 3-song EP makes a great promise for the band's forthcoming stuff. I am going to be one of the first ones in line to welcome Eurynomos when that time comes. What a bloody promising find this band truly is. Fucking hell!!! \m/
