Ever Circling Wolves
Press release:
“Finns seem to have a knack for creating unique music and EVER CIRCLING WOLVES are definitely a band to check out if you’re feeling adventurous. Released on the underrated Cimmerian Shade Recordings, this is unpredictable and eclectic music that merges several genres and more.


EVER CIRCLING WOLVES (Finland) – ‘Of Woe or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Gloom ‘ (January 27th, 2017)

Genre – Blackened Death/Doom Metal
Release Date – January 27th, 2017
Record Label – Cimmerian Shade Recordings (US)

American label Cimmerian Shade Recordings is doing a great job uncovering some hidden gems from around the world. After BARBARIAN SWORDS, they’ve unleashed a similar black/death/doom metal release which surprisingly sounds markedly different with its unique expression. From Finland, EVER CIRCLING WOLVES are creating their own template of blackened death/doom. It’s not aggressive as the aforementioned band but they wallow in their own atmosphere of light yet moving melodies. They create a charged up ambiance of their own where they play music that’s a combination of all the genres in an attempt to create a singular sound. It’s pleasant, unpredictable and refreshing. Parallels are hard to find but they seem to borrow influences from bands such as UNHOLY, ALTAR OF BETELGEUZE, DOLORIAN, SKEPTICISM, NORTT and LEVIATHAN.”
