Edenkaiser – “Doomsday Juggernaut” EP (2014)

Independent Release

Review by Tony Cannella

Edenkaiser is a “Thrashened” Black Metal band from Spain. The band formed in 2009 and has just issued their debut EP “Doomsday Juggernaut”. After the opening intro “Obsidian”, “Enter Mephisto” kicks in and comes on fast, loud, heavy, blasting and just freakin’ insane. Lianne’s vocals are wickedly brutal and way over-the-top (and I mean that in a good way). Next is “Inner Kingdom” which continues the brutality of the previous track but also mixing in tempo changes and rain sound effects which succeeds in giving it an eerie feeling. Musically the band comes across like a juggernaut. “A Jewel in My Skull” is a pure intensity and heaviness. The final two songs “Kill For the Crown” and a cover of the Vomitory song “Inferno” brings things to a fittingly vicious conclusion. I loved the simplicity of the production. I’m not sure if this was their intention or it was a money issue, but sometimes Black Metal tends to be over produced. That is not the case with “Doomsday Juggernaut”, it has a cool sound that allows the aggression to come through unfiltered.

While Edenkaiser’s brand of musical mayhem may not be for everyone, I have no doubt that “Doomsday Juggernaut” will find a niche with fans who love their metal on the EXTREMELY extreme side.

Review – 80/100
