HOWLS OF EBB - Cursus Impasse: The Pendlomic Vows - Out Now On Tape

Out Now On Tape - 200 Copies

Sputnik Music: Howls of Ebb cannot be given enough praise for what they've manage to accomplish in only a few short years. Topping themselves with a perfect concoction of their first two releases, the band has made an immense and incredibly work of death metal with their sophomore album. It's a bold and winding masterwork of metal that shows how keenly aware the band is to every little facet of the genre. Cursus Impasse: The Pendlomic Vows is an album that needs to be heard.

No Clean Singing: Howls of Ebb refuse to fit neatly into any of the death metal sub-genres and continue to cement their own weird and wonderful sound.

Nine Circles: should provide more than enough genre-bending and blending to appease the most sadistic and pessimistic fan of black metal. Howls of Ebb provide a journey through global rhythms by way of black metal. It’s one tour that you must take.

Soundscape Magazine: A shoddy mix isn’t enough to eclipse the horrors Howls of Ebb conjure and their songs are too good to stay hidden. Coming with a grotesque helping of dolore la doppio makes each lick of the fret board like water to thirst. Cursus Impasse: The Pendlomic Vows is a vile sounding album, but bring the pain. It works better that way.

Metal Ireland: A weird and absolutely wonderful mind-melter of an album. Have it.

Infernal Masquerade: Being one the weirdest and most sick sounding bands, Howls of Ebb is delivers a unique experience with this 42-minute long release. If you liked any of their previous music, or retro sounding Black/Death Metal bands with Indonesian influences, this is one hell of a release you don’t want to miss.
