IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS is proud to present CULT OF EIBON's debut mini-album, Lycan Twilight Sorcery, on CD and 12" vinyl formats. Longtime supporters of the particular scene, in recent times, IRON BONEHEAD has heralded the classic Greek black metal sound with exceptionally potent new albums by KAWIR and DISHARMONY, as well as celebrated EPs by ancient-minded newcomers ITHAQUA and a recent split mini-album by likeminded classicists FUNERAL STORM and CELESTIAL RITE. But with Lycan Twilight Sorcery, the label raises the banner yet again and unveils the timeless magick of CULT OF EIBON.
Just last year, CULT OF EIBON were introduced with a teasingly short and super-limited debut EP titled Fullmoon Invocation. Indeed, it was aptly named, as the Greek duo's black metal was of a mesmerizingly mystical hue and its foundation was firmly - and, more importantly, authentically - rooted in their homeland's enduringly unique idiom of ancient darkness. Here, with the longer 'n' stronger Lycan Twilight Sorcery, CULT OF EIBON brew a heady, hazy potion that pulses with that same addicting, ageless black magick that made the early works of Rotting Christ and Varathron massively influential in Greece and far beyond. But, as with anything worth its while, from replication comes reckoning: immediately identifiable as "the classic Greek sound" they may be, CULT OF EIBON nevertheless possess a bewitching, almost-(were)wolven identity all their own, and prove it across the mini-album's six central tracks. It's startlingly familiar, but also startlingly awe-inspiring; there's certainly sorcery at hand here. Behold the Lycan Twilight Sorcery and follow the CULT OF EIBON into forgotten realms!

A makeshift encampement, in its center a large bonfire. Around it, both men and women circle, coming together in combat meditation and readying themselves and their bodies for the inevitable. Some consume select mushrooms, staring into the fire and altering their mind, leaving behind their humanness for some hours and becoming berserks in the process. Their time has come: half-naked and armed to the teeth, the heathens' battlecry resounds. The horn is blown. Their enemies do not stand a chance. David Fischer

Blood Incantation is simply the best technical atmospheric death metal band making music right now. This is a psychedelic and proggy album while still being crushing. Don't miss them live. You will not be disappointed. Andrei Buckareff
