I consider myself a person who’s kind and positive in most interactions I have with people. But that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy some vile, enraged, and frenzied black metal from time to time! I know that there’s good in myself and in the world, but I’m not blind to the evil, and that’s why listening to the scornful vocals on the EOS track “Valkyrie” makes me daydream about the just due many people on this planet are barreling towards right now. There’s a shift happening right now as we move from thousands of years in the masculine energies of action and destruction, into the next few thousand years in the feminine energies of nurturing and empathy. There’s a battle against patriarchal oppression, and as I’m listening to the madness on this song I can see the Valkyrie coming down to bring the oppressed to feast and leaving the oppressors to lament and starve. It’s really the only way for humanity to prevent our extinction. So I’m calling on records like The Great Ascension to call the Valkyries down to help us shift the balance of power, and since it’s due out on LP/digital mid-December via Brilliant Emperor Records, I guess I’ll wait a couple more months. Or you can help me right now by hitting play on our exclusive stream of “Valkyrie” below and envisioning a new world… Pre-order HERE!
Begun in 2014 and completed in 2018, ‘The Great Ascension’ is 7 songs of triumph, intensity and conviction. The vision and sonic representation of EOS has been an uncompromising journey since its inception. Lyrically, ‘The Great Ascension’ paints vivid, nightmarish visions of man. The solemn journey through spiritual ecstasy, blood lust and pride…A stone to the face of the gods.
