Album Notes
United Kingdom band Ecthirion (formerly Axiom) release their debut 5 track EP, "Apocalyptic Visions", in early 2009. With guest vocals by Eugen Dodenhoeft (Far Beyond) and Azahel Frost (Frost Like Ashes), expect epic orchestral metal with Viking and black metal tendencies (ala Dimmu Borgir).

In the words of the band: "Hopefully something unique which will encourage you and make you think. We try and do things differently from everybody else, we try not to be cliche, we combine elements of all styles of metal including the extremes, baroque music, film music, folk music, eastern music, spanish music and a bit of jazz and blues (which is yet to be shown). Most of these styles will be heard on the EP.

Get ready for a new wave Of epic orchestral metal!

This is a very good EP. It is Epic Symphonic in nature with a touch of Black Metal. Somewhat original sounding for the genre. Nice intro with "Dawn of the great Apocalypse" followed up with "Warmageddon" Nice guitar leads and breaks with smooth tempo changes. As a writer for The Metal Resource this album would be one of my surprise favorites of the year if it only had 4 to 6 more songs. Being I an E.P. I knew if would be short, but what I did not know is how well I would like the album! The Art work is incredible and lyrics are in the range from Tolkien like to Medieval War to Apocalyptic in nature.
