Three Eyes of the Void is a new Ukrainian black metal band, the solo project of Dmytro Kvashnin (ex-Balfor), and The Moment of Storm is the project’s first EP. It will be released in December on digital platforms, and on February 23 it will be released on CD by the Mexican label Diabolus Productions. It includes session drumming by Kyiv musician Alexander Kasiarum.
We are told that The Moment of Storm grew out of Dmytro Kvashnin’s conversation with a friend about the increasingly frivolous interactions among people in the global social environment and the resulting loss of self-identification and individuality. Kvashnin also drew upon such works as Nietzsche’s Human, All Too Human: A Book for Free Spirits and Plato’s Republic in formulating the lyrical expressions of these reflections.
Not exactly standard conceptual or lyrical fare for black metal, but these inspirations have produced remarkably vibrant and emotionally involving music, as you’re about to discover through our premiere of this song from the EP: “The Eyes To See“.
