hailsatanataxi The label has this listed as Post Hardcore and I think it's detracting from people checking this group out. I love the pummeling drums and the way the vocals and guitars mesh and mix together. The electronic atmospheric background noises really flesh out the full sound of each song. Loved it. Favorite track: Swallow Your Tongue.

Darknight The First Circle is a reality check into the world weirdness and nightmares that we no longer comprehend. Noise rock twisted within the art of blackened post metal written within the confines of demonic forces,prepare yourself!! Favorite track: The First Circle.

“The First Circle” is the debut album by Blackened Noise / Post-Metal project EDEN.

A terrifyingly dark and demented album, skilfully combining caustic, abrasive and tormented black metal with demonic post - hardcore, Industrial and noise.

EDEN is not just a band, but an artistic initiative blending sonic and visual catharsis in order to explore lunacy, terror and fear through the use and manipulation of unusual mediums, including recycled materials, bowed guitars and prepared piano altered with bolts and screws.

A suffocating nightmare made by layers of bone-shattering sounds and told by a monstrous voice lurking in the dark and screaming in madness - “The First Circle” is an uncompromising showcase of psychopathy in music, and a truly disquieting and frightening listening experience.

Addictively dark, fiercely experimental, noisy and just purely extreme: EDEN’s debut album is the sound of the end of time as told by a deranged mind.
