Ea - _II_
(Solitude Productions, 2009)
by: Quentin Kalis (9 out of 10)
This is Ea's second album, containing two untitled tracks and lyrics drawn from ancient sacral texts. They reside somewhere in the US.

That is the sum of information available on the band; I cannot find band names, not even pseudonyms, and remain clueless as to the number of members. There is no info on where or when this was recorded. Normally, such kult kiddie attempts at remaining mysterious are reserved for black metal bands, whose shoddy music alone is destined to consign them to well-deserved obscurity, but Ea are neither black nor shit.

This is not a complex band, nor have they departed significantly, if at all, from the motif of their debut: simple and drawn out riffs, and reverbed to the lord of the depths himself, accompanied by a wash of synths to create their epic funeral doom atmosphere. Growls are low in the mix, and vocals so ridiculously guttural as to be just another instrument serving the low end. The song structures are simple and fairly predictable in their alternations between metal and ambient, but that's part of the territory. (Don't bother trying to hear any lyrics, and good luck in finding any online.)

This does not differ significantly from their debut, but no-one expected otherwise and I wouldn't have it any other way.
