“Ends Of The Earth” is the title of Euphoreon‘s sophomore album that is released on April 20th. The band is in the middle of a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the physical copies of the album, which would be worth picking up on the basis of Gyula Havancsak’s glorious artwork alone.
Euphoreon is a German/New Zealand metal band, originally formed as a solo project band by Matt Summerville from New Zealand in 2009. Musically, Euphoreon has a strong Scandinavian and European melodic metal influences, combining predominantly harsh vocals with strong melodic hooks.
A home demo called “Before The Blackened Sky” followed soon after in March of 2009, gaining positive feedback from the community. Matt continued to write songs with the hope of finding someone to produce a full-length album. In November 2009 he, by chance (or fate) came across the very man for the job.
Eugen Dodenhoeft from Far Beyond, Germany, joined the project as producer, guitarist, and second vocalist – in the process giving Euphoreon new depth and professionalism to move forward. Hard work followed over the next year, writing and recording the first full-length and self-titled album (2011), overcoming a lot of obstacles and taking Euphoreon to the next level. Also lending his playing to the album was Patrick Stäudle, on Piano.
