Ether Coven "Language Is The Instrument Of The Empire"
Equal parts Neurosis, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, with a dash of Converge and Morbid Angel, Ether Coven re-imagines the term "heavy." Weighing in at just under 26 minutes, "Language Is The Instrument Of The Empire" is emotionally taxing in every direction, from huge waves of atmospheric wash to soul-trembling riffs that you can literally feel deep in your bones in a live setting, and lyrics that viciously attack all things deemed normal as part of our culture; the conditioning of a society, the blind eye turned to slaughterhouses, and the lack of accountability of public services. Ether Coven is not an easy listen due to their sonically melancholic nature, which has become synonymous with their name. 12"ep includes digital download.
