||Eudaimony, the band that features current and former members of Naglfar, Dark Fortress, Nachtreich and Secrets Of The Moon, has debuted the title track from their forthcoming debut album Futile, which is set for release on the Cold Dimensions label in the autumn. Check out the title track using the Soundcloud widget below.
Eudaimony was formed in 2007 by Matthias "Azathoth" Jell (ex-Dark Fortress) and Marcus E. Norman (Naglfar, Bewitched (SWE), Havayoth, Ancient Wisdom), and having written and recorded three songs quite early on, it has been somewhat tardy in completing and releasing its debut album due mainly to the commitments of the various members to their other projects, as well as some label issues. With a new label in place, Eudaimony begun recording Futile in March 2013. The album, which includes a guest appearance on vocals by Antimatter's Mick Moss, was mixed and mastered by Markus Stock (Empyrium, The Vision Bleak) at the Klangschmiede Studio E in Germany.
As well as Jell on vocals and Norman on guitars, bass, synthesizer and programming, Eudaimony's lineup consists of Jörg Heemann (Secrets Of The Moon) on drums and Peter Honsalek (Nachtreich) on viola and piano.
Jell said about the band's sound: "We realize that unfortunately the black metal tag is going to follow us around given our respective backgrounds, but Eudaimony really sits uneasily in this kind of categorization. Our music, our lyrics and our visual concepts deal with emotional hopelessness and the futility of life, rather than the usual subject matters you tend to find in black metal and its various sub-genres."
