Back in October, hardcore outfit EON, hailing from France, released a thunderous, thrashy EP “Kalash Blood & Bones Pt. 1” produced by Nicolas “Ranko” Muller (ex-Svart Crown) and unleashed via Tentacles Industries. Since then they have released two music videos for the singles “Welcome To The Pyramid” and “Come Down”; now they are releasing a third music video for “Highlanders”. With an already sizable catalog dating back to 1999, they are eager to deliver a visual element to their violent, melodic hardcore. They share their thoughts on the single, which is indeed a nod to the film:
“Musically, it begins with guitars harmonized in the style of Carcass then it goes on with modern metal and hardcore, there is a melodic guitar solo and a black metal passage. The singing style adapts to each part. Lyrically, we explain that we have been parading the fashions and some bands for years and that we are still there even more extreme than ever.”
For the writing of this record, EON felt free to break the codes and defy genre rules, they wanted to show that violence has several faces in this world through the lyrics: and they wanted to push the envelope to the extreme while keeping the melody. First and foremost, their music is made with liver performance and the energy of the pit in mind, but there are strategically placed breaths of melodic fresh air. Lyrically, “Kalash Blood & Bones Pt. 1”is uncompromising even if it may seem very violent or politically incorrect. They ask hard questions and encourage rebellion.
EON is recommended for fans of Napalm Death, Hatebreed, and Slayer.

About: eOn ass destroyer since 1999. Born in the fury of the dying 90s, eOn has never been a prisoner of style. A perfect mix of punk anger, the precision of thrash, and the violence of death metal, the band’s music go further to the extreme, but the hardcore Roots still lives on. Since the band hired Nicolas Muller as their drummer (ex Svart Crown), with more and more cutting guitar riffs, eOn melts a solid technique with a wide metal culture. It’s terrifying, yet clever music, allied with really impressive live performances that push the band to a high standard level.
