Well, it didn't look promising, but this is a very cool album. Ea are a US Funeral Doom band who somehow ended up on the Russian label Solitude. This band claims they use the "dead language recreated by archaeology", which is a pretty Doom concept, but it makes their lyrics entirely irrelevant, as nobody can understand them.

This is Funeral Doom in all its glory. If you like slow, crushing guitars and faintly grinding vocals overlaid by drawn-out harmonies and melodic ideas, then this is for you. This is entirely orthodox for the genre, and I like it a lot, though there is not anything you have not heard before if you are a Funeral Doom fan. This is a huge, epic album that rolls along on giant, haunting melodies, and it definitely creates the brooding, ancient atmosphere it is aiming for. Ea are not reinventing the wheel, but this is a very good album to debut with, and I will definitely look for more from this band. Impressive.
