Eudaimony reveal artwork and tracklisting for upcoming album
With their debut album ready for release in autumn, Eudaimony, whose line-up features former members of Naglfar, Dark Fortress, Nachtreich and Secrets of the Moon, have announced the tracklisting for their upcoming album Futile and unveiled its cover artwork (see above). The eight track album also features a guest appearance from Antimatter‘s Mick Moss. The recently completed artwork was created by Ben Borucki (Irrleuchten) from the German band Sonic Reign. Full track listing for Futile, which will be released on the Cold Dimensions label, is as follows:
- 1. Ways to Indifference
- 2. Mute
- 3. A Window in the Attic
- 4. Futile
- 5. Portraits
- 6. Cold
- 7. Godforsaken
- 8. December’s Hearse
Although formed back in 2007 by former Dark Fortress frontman Matthias Jell and Marcus E. Norman (Naglfar, Bewitched, Havayoth, Ancient Wisdom), Eudaimony only recorded three songs before the schedules of all its members, which, aside from Jell on vocals and Norman on guitars, bass, synthesizer and programming includes of Jörg Heemann (Secrets of the Moon) on drums and Peter Honsalek (Nachtreich) on viola and piano, caught up with the band. Added to this were a few label issues that had to be resolved, so things were put on the back burner until March 2013 when everyone was finally free to begin recording the band’s debut full-length album.
Eudaimony recently debuted the title track from the album, and although many see the band’s logical home as being within the Black Metal and Depressive Black Metal genres, mainly because of the backgrounds of its members, Jell was quick to point out that this should really not be the case:
Eudaimony’s music is about emotional hopelessness and the futility of life, and is a world away from the usual subject matters that Black Metal tends to deal with. The whole visual and the lyrical concepts of Eudaimony combine together to send out the message that the end of our lives begins from the instant we first draw breath, happiness on earth is just an illusion and life itself has no sense except in death.
