Eave – Fervor (Album Review)

Release Date: July 28th 2023 - Bindrune Recordings

Eave - Fervor

Eave releases their third full-length Opus ‘’Fervor’’. This an emotional, atmospheric offering that continues their journey from their previous release ‘’ Phantoms Made Permanent’’ into new realms of experimentation, emotion and cohesion for this US-based four-piece.

From the opener of ‘’Past Pulses’’ and its gradual crescendo into a post-metal avalanche of feedback and anguish that morphs into a dreamlike tremolo soundscape, that is soothing and transportive, Eave excels in delivering impassioned modern post-music that is immediate, visceral, and raw in its haste to deliver its message. ‘’Shards ‘’ drips with Us Black metal fury that delves into a discordant feedback soundwave of vitriol. ‘’ Chance is a Spectre’’ is an utterly heavy denouncement of loss and despair.

Eaves are able to touch upon moments of prog and atmosphere without losing the dynamics as on beautiful, yet ugly reflections cast by the epic ‘’Mirroring’’. ‘’Sale Ash’’ continues the despair and sorrow, the woe delivered with waves of dissonance and feedback that give way to gentle picking before hurling you into their sonic abyss.

Fervor is an album where the immediacy of their energy and anger does not require technical ability but a deft hand that is punctuated by experience, power, and anger.  Inherently aggressive it is a stripped-back visceral experience that, over its seven tracks, delivers its concepts with a blackened, broken heart lost in misery, anger and agony.
