Eschaton, the duo of Orphx and Ancient Methods, will be releasing their second EP together on Token in May. The EP is simply called ‘II’ and contains four new raw, unforgiving industrial techno tracks.
The follow-up to their 2014 debut for Token takes a more varied, yet ever menacing turn, moving between the raw and punky energy of ‘Answer My Prayer’, and the droney shamanic mysticism (reminiscent of some early Ancient Methods releases) of ‘No Other Gods Before Me’. ‘Those Who Obey’ strikes relentlessly like an archaic battle anthem, while the slow build of ‘Deus Irae’ gradually progresses to the climactic thrashing promised in the preceding tracks.
Eschaton II will be out on May 6 through Token Records.
