New Drowning The Light Song/EP

2019-08-12 by Quattro Bajeena CONTRIBUTOR | 15 Comments
Australian black metal savant Drowning The Light has just released the song "The Abyssic Coils of Saatet-ta (Darkener of Earth)" from his freshly announced upcoming EP, A Gleam in the Eye of Set. Much like his previous effort Cursed Below the Waves, this EP seems to be more a conceptual piece, this time heavily steeped in Egyptian mythology. Drowning the Light mainman Azgorh had the following to say about the release:

"Drowning the Light once again returns to the tenth region of the night, ancient Egyptian darkness, and Sets mastery over the primal unrestrained shadow serpent of the night that is Apep, in this EP of Majestic, Melancholic, Vampyric & Serpentine Black Metal!
Apep/Apophis the serpent of chaos, disorder & the abyss has existed before conceptualized time, ancient and immortal having risen up from the waters of primeval chaos which preceded the creation of the cosmos.

Apophis attacks the Solar boat of Ra nightly and beholds a terrible roar which threatens to bring chaos to the cosmological prison of time and order. Apep is the Vampyric hunger and predatory instincts inherent in living beings, including to an extent the Neteru (Gods) of the Ennead. Apophis has long been identified with Set, the God of Chaos, Darkness, Storms and War, yet is the Neter which brings balance and maintains Ra by holding back the unrestrained disorder of Apep. It was only Set who could withstand the magical powers of Apophis, who nightly would attack Ra and the gods who sailed on the solar barge through the tenth region of the night. Set mastered and conquered Apep, channeling his darkness and primal chaos into temporary Order by his spear of war... Yet this cycle is eternal!
"

There is no official release date for the EP as of yet.

Song is great and I'm looking forward to the EP like all his work, but something is missing from the production. The guitars don't have the fuzz he used to have on stuff like Tenth Region.

His production jobs are crazy inconsistent, but this seems to be more in line with Varcolaci Rising and some of his more recent stuff.

Yeah the production sounds like a live demo, but it works. There's very little space in the mix. Everything jammed up the middle, and sounds like it was tracked with one guitar. But if there's one genre that'll allow it...

After checking out tons of awful DSBM demos today, I can't complain about production. It was fine.

it's not bad, i just think he's had better

i'm curious about his writing/recording process b/c each of his releases production-wise sound really different

i'm curious as to why that is

Hmmm, no idea. Maybe they were recorded in different places/studios?
