Eternal Darkness (Swe) - 1992 - Doomed 7'' EP

Eternal Darkness were a death doom metal band from Sweden, the most prominent country for dark, dismal, death metal. The atmosphere of this EP is very gloomy and obscure. It is full of haunting melodies soaked in reverb and delay, overlapping crushing doom riffs with that classic Swedish guitar sound. The drums and bass plod along lethargically beneath all of it and of course are done perfectly.

This is not your run of the mill, weepy goth, homo-erotic death doom that seems to be so popular these days. The music contained on the Doomed EP is devastatingly heavy and sluggish death metal of the highest order.

It has exactly the same cover art as the Dimmu Borgir's debut "For All Tid" from 1994.
