• eigenlicht Self-Annihilating Consciousness (CD, £11.50)

    I, Voidhanger Records is proud to work alongside Gilead Media to present the long-awaited debut full-length from black metal project EIGENLICHT. Since its inception in 2014, EIGENLICHT has existed as an entity with reverence for the world both seen and unseen. Each member of the project has chosen a path dedicated to the study of either the natural world or the fundamental nature of knowledge and existence. Their music is built upon experiences of the past and a striving for knowledge to come. With its debut EP in 2015, “Sacral Regicide”, EIGENLICHT began to draw the attention of many who hold an interest in underground U.S. black metal. This early impact was in some part due to the members’ previous work in SKAGOS, FAUNA, EKSTASIS, and other well-known projects throughout the Pacific Northwest. On “Self-Annihilating Consciousness” we see the work on “Sacral Regicide” standing as a foundation—but all aspects evolving with an impassioned urgency. Synth-laden dooming tones set the stage for an intense journey through a domain of ethereal black metal highlighted with majestic instrumentation to accompany the shrieking wails and chaos. A journey best described in the band’s own words: “Self-Annihilating Consciousness is an exploration into the realm of gnosis that both illuminates and destroys, that draws out the truth of Being even as it ruptures our conceptions of Self and Other. Moulded around a black metal core, it spills open at times into angular meditations, cosmic thrall, and orgies of ecstatic metallic fervor. The album coheres around mind-altering revelations that bring a mirror to the invoker only to then shatter the reflection. Logos wrestles with Abyss in an eternal struggle over who will properly wield the blazing sword of intangible truth.” The album will stand as a testament of discovery and enlightenment.
