DESCRIPTION

It is not very often that an active local band is able to capture the attention of Nuclear War Now! in such a way that the label feels compelled to offer to release one or more of its recordings.  Hailing from just around the bay in San Mateo, CA, Howls of Ebb (HoB) is one notable exception. Now it is the label’s great pleasure to retroactively release the first vinyl LP edition of the band’s debut full-length, “Vigils of the 3rd Eye,”. Much like its second album, “Vigils…” realizes its potency through a combination of countlessly-varied riffs, tempo changes, and layered musical textures. Each song is marked by notably unorthodox and unpredictable progressions that can have a very disquieting effect on the listener. The guitars often move in a schizophrenic fashion from rapid-fire, galloping riffs to darkly serene but disturbing passages and back, without the slightest hint of a disconnect in the song’s composition. The riffs are often executed with a staccato-like picking technique which combines perfectly with the drums, thus accentuating the percussive element of the higher-tempo portions of the music. Moreover, in comparison to most death metal bands, Howls of Ebb relies somewhat less on effects like distortion and reverb, which serves to create a starker contrast between the notes/chords and the open spaces between them, which further augments the disorienting effect of the song structures and progressions.  The synthesis of these traits makes “Vigils of the 3rd Eye,” like its successor, a product of a band who defies the conventions of its subgenre and thus earns its recognition as a modern-day innovator of death metal
