EUDAIMONY: Title Track Of New Album Available For Streaming

July 9, 2013

EUDAIMONY, the band that features current and former members of NAGLFAR, DARK FORTRESS, NACHTREICH and SECRETS OF THE MOON, has debuted the title track from the forthcoming album "Futile", which is set for release on the Cold Dimensions label in the autumn. Check it out the title track using the SoundCloud widget below.

EUDAIMONY was formed in 2007 by Matthias Jell (ex-DARK FORTRESS) and Marcus E. Norman (NAGLFAR, BEWITCHED, HAVAYOTH, ANCIENT WISDOM),and, having written and recorded three songs quite early on, it has been somewhat tardy in completing and releasing its debut album, due mainly to the commitments of the various members to their other projects, as well as some label issues. With a new label in place, EUDAIMONY was free to begin recording "Futile" in March 2013. The album, which includes a guest appearance on vocals by ANTIMATTER's Mick Moss, was mixed and mastered by Markus Stock (EMPYRIUM, THE VISION BLEAK) at the Klangschmiede Studio E in Germany. Artwork for "Futile" is by Ben Borucki (SONIC REIGN).

As well as Jell on vocals and Norman on guitars, bass, synthesizer and programming, EUDAIMONY's lineup consists of Jörg Heemann (SECRETS OF THE MOON) on drums and Peter Honsalek (NACHTREICH) on viola and piano. Given the sick, disturbing and negative subject matter the band has chosen to write about, it is inevitable that EUDAIMONY would be slotted into the black metal genre, a misconception Jell is keen to correct: "We realize that unfortunately the black metal tag is going to follow us around given our respective backgrounds, but EUDAIMONY really sits uneasily in this kind of categorization. Our music, our lyrics and our visual concepts deal with emotional hopelessness and the futility of life, rather than the usual subject matters you tend to find in black metal and its various sub-genres."
