This three-man black metal band from Greece is blowing my mind and not even leaving the tiniest scraps of tissue behind.
I discovered Enshadowed for the first time in January because I saw that fantastic album cover up there, and I promptly included them in this feature. The artwork — created by the band’s guitarist N.E.C.R.O and an unidentified friend who did the design for the Lucifer figure — is for the band’s third album and their first on the reliable Pulverised label: Magic Chaos Psychedelia.
The title of the album (which was recorded by Fotis Benardo of Septic Flesh) is descriptively accurate, at least based on a song called “Inner Psy-Trip” that was released for streaming yesterday. It swarms like demon hornets, it blasts like anti-aircraft armament, it shrieks like a black cloud of wraiths, it crawls with reptilian menace, it lurches like a damaged golem, it thunders like an orcish army on the march.
The tempo changes constantly, the guitars alternately buzz and chime, the music attacks voraciously but also reverberates with grim, even funereal melodies. It starts with teeth bared and ends with slow piano keys over an electronic drone. Fascinating song. Listen after the jump.
I don’t have a release date for the album yet, but it has vaulted to my “most anticipated” list.

Hell yes, that totally made my sticker peck out.
Seems to have made you dyslexic, too. Right on.
Since January I have picked up their first two albums. Great stuff. The last one in particular gad some warped death-metal-y-ness that made it really distinctive.
Well, I am quite impressed! I can’t wait for more!

Don’t waste all your good material in one post now 🙂
Song sounded pretty good. Obviously (and I know you will) give a heads up when the album comes out/has a release date
Damn, you’re right. I got carried away. Whatever I hear next, I’ll only be able to say, “sounds pretty good”.
And don’t worry — as soon as I get news about a release date and how to get this, I’ll post again.
