ESCHATON (ANCIENT METHODS & ORPHX) - ESCHATON II (12")
"His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself.
He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God."
Eschaton is Ancient Methods & Orphx. To listeners familiar with the esteemed back catalogue of Orphx, spanning over 20 years of saturated noisy hardware obsession, a collaboration with the thundering steel sound Ancient Methods should make perfect sense. For this project they use their combined hard-edged industrial palette to produce a frighteningly convincing apocalyptic prophecy.
As the second product of this collaboration, Eschaton II has taken a more varied, yet ever menacing turn, moving between the raw and punky energy of Answer My Prayer, and the droney shamanic mysticism (reminiscent of some early Ancient Methods releases) of No Other Gods Before Me. Those Who Obey strikes relentlessly like an archaic battle anthem, while the slow build of Deus Irae gradually progresses to the climactic thrashing promised in the preceding tracks.
