Zaum – Eidolon


Zaum – Eidolon
Self released/I Hate/Superbob – 2016
Rock, Doom, Mantra, Atmospheric
Rated: ***

A duo arrived on the scene almost two years ago and nestled itself nicely and thoroughly in one of the little corners of our majestic heavy scene. The two from Moncton, Canada produce doom for the enlightened, the yoga practitioners and the ones that know very well how to breathe. And with their new record they are featured on Number 19 of the November Doom Charts. The mantra-esque quality of the new Zaum record is unparalleled. Ofcourse we cannot claim anymore that the two tracks on Eidolon are songs. But rather, a collection of psychedelic and bewitching atmospheres interspersed with musical hypnotism and colorful sound tapestries. With some oriental influences throughout, the record provides a dark yet uplifting experience that can only be qualified as something a kin of a doomed state of Zen… Om manipadmé hum. Om manipadmé doom…
