Steyoyoke Black welcomes talented newcomers Kadhem and EZEK to the uber talented roster of dark introspective artists. Comprising of 2 keen and mysterious tracks, this “Phantom” EP will have you on a razors edge of suspense.
Kicking off this EP, “Phantom” immediately thrusts the listener into an irregular kick and tom beat. Resting atop, the repeating sequence lead hypnotizes the listener only to be periodically reminded of imminent drama by way of lengthy cathedral-esque horn stabs and rising tension strings. Continuing this haunting journey into the proverbial Inferno, “Luminance” takes you to a place light only appears in flashes by means of delicate plucky downward arpeggios. Its sustained lead drones continue pulling the listener deeper into the netherworld.
Kadhem and EZEK’s “Phantom” EP is an evocative and pensive addition to the Steyoyoke Black label. With its soul- stirring and mystifying undertones and apprehensive melodies, this EP will take the listener on a philosophical and perilous journey into foreboding darkness.
