Mystic Cosmos

Epping Forest

Epping Forest play a kind of Blackened Death Metal with reminiscences of the Scandinavian essence, and their actual ‘style’ is increasingly difficult to characterise: the horde drinks from a myriad of different fountains, starting with metal and more obscure music, but not excluding other genres altogether.

Nevertheless, it could and should be said that Epping Forest plays fast and brutal, using and creating lots of atmospheric, mystic and extreme elements.

Everblasting Struggle is the debut album of one of the earliest Portuguese Blackened Death Metal bands in existence. Epping Forest brings reminiscences of the Scandinavian essence that provides the listener with an intense trip throughout the ten tracks and all their darkest Norse, Egyptian and classical Greek mythology.

Having one of the fastest Portuguese drummers on their ranks, you are bound to be blasted off your seat by one of the fastest albums of the Lusitanian scene performed by (In)humans!
