Full Album Stream: The Eye: Supremacy - reissue


It is hellishly hot here today - hence ‘Supremacy’. Because, “after years of lying dormant in forgotten silence, the icy menace of THE EYE has risen anew”. But beware: THE EYE is BLUT AUS NORD's Vindsval before we discovered his pleasant singing voice on ‘777 – Cosmosophy’. Originally released in 1997, ‘Supremacy’ is made up of “eight unholy canticles of cold, hypnotic black metal in its purest form”:
“Conceived and executed by Vindsval, THE EYE's sole full-length explored the cruel mythos of odinism and delved into a poetic worship of nature in its dark, repetitive compositions, foreshadowing its creator's later work with star-driven black magicians BLUT AUS NORD. Wreathed in an ancient, otherworldly atmosphere, ‘Supremacy’ is both deeply misanthropic and hauntingly beautiful. Saturated with epic, elegant keyboards and clean, ringing guitar tones, it recalls the grandiose paeans of SUMMONING and glorious ride of latter-day BATHORY as often as it offers a window into Vindsval's darkened shrines. It’s accessible but commanding; an experience, rather than a mere distraction. THE EYE's final testament is a lost classic that has been found and elevated to its rightful place,” [commends the label, Debemur Morti Productions]
So, take a listen here (BandCamp) or below and marvel one of this talented musician's first black impressions, and buy the ‘Supremacy’ either as CD or vinyl here (Debemur Morti store). ‘Supremacy’ is due March 15th, 2013:
