“On Par With I”, the new guitar playthrough video from Athens based, progressive death metallers ONCE THEM EDENS, can be seen below. The song is composed and performed by the band’s mastermind Ω, and the video was shot and edited by Athina Tousia.
”Omega’s riffing menace leads up to a relatively up-tempo instrumental section that follows and lets the progressive element of the album shine. This song is no other than ‘On Par With I’ and its perplexing rhythmic changes that occur without cessation, tied with an astounding bass guitar and a conclusion that features some of the first black metal(-inspired) signs, that are spread thoughout the record. This time the vocals are harsh and raw, as the second singer, ‘Telis Mimoglou’ takes the lead, continuously on rotation with Jean Baptiste’s vocals, shaping a paranoid, intense give and take of screams, growls and actual singing. Such vocal transitions are balanced and always to the point with a rather theatrical approach.”
“On Par With I” is taken off the band’s debut flull-length, “The Year Is One”.
The album was engineered & mixed by John McRis of the Soundflakes Studios and mastered by Steve Lado.
