Eternal Elysium: Share

Nipponese mechagodzillas of crunch Eternal Elysium deliver stoner metal from its relentless recycling of predictable sources. Although much in the way of synapse-gumming neolithic sludge of the old Sabbath school sluices its way through these tracks, it's evident that EE have listened to a fair share of 80s New Wave/Gothic bands from Bauhaus to Go-Gos to B-52s, not to mention garnering tips in funk from titans like Parliament and Sly Stone. It's not every band that can mix a riff salad from the Sab classic "The Wizard" complete with what sounds suspiciously like a kazoo and then chug into wah-wah disco mode before changing courses yet again and slamming some serious Entombed-style old school death metal at ya. These guys have been described as Clapton's Cream gone Satanic, and indeed a whiff of the 60s does rise through the plumes of ganja-fed bass, feedback haze and garage-band guitar plonk, but its in their eclectic fusion of elements no other culture would conceive of joining that EE shows true originality. Share this with your friends.

Eternal Elysium: Share

My Score:

I have had Spiritualized D in my collection for some time. It take some time to get used to it but once you get your mind tuned in it is quite a ride. I have recently listened to Share, and personally I feel that this is a better album than Spiritualized D. I am sure that most Eternal Elysian fans will disagree with that choice.
