EVO­KEN

“Hyp­n­a­gogia” PRO­FOUND LORE

Exclaim! - - TABLE OF CONTENTS -

Novem­ber 9. Known as one of the found­ing fa­thers of Amer­i­can death / fu­neral doom, New Jersey’s Evo­ken have been a long-stand­ing pil­lar of the scene dur­ing their 25 year pil­lage. Their new ful­l­length al­bum Hyp­n­a­gogia is the band’s sixth al­bum, their first in six years since the land­mark Atra Mors, and is a tow­er­ing mono­lith that de­vel­ops and re­de­fines the band’s sound, strength­en­ing their po­si­tion within the metal hi­er­ar­chy. A mul­ti­tude of vary­ing and flour­ish­ing emo­tions ex­ists herein, push­ing their trade­mark pen­chant for grandiose melod­i­cism and pul­ver­iz­ing heav­i­ness into the band’s most in­tense, com­pelling, and soul crush­ing ex­pe­ri­ences yet— one of eu­pho­ria, des­per­a­tion, and hope­less­ness. (For fans of My Dy­ing Bride, old-school Par­adise Lost, Bell Witch, old-school Anath­ema, Loss, Mourn­ful Con­gre­ga­tion )
