EYE OF SOLITUDE Releases “Canto III”

By Chris Dahlberg

Published on Wednesday, December 11, 2013

Eye of Solitude has released their third full length Canto III on Kaotoxin Records. The album is available as a digital download and limited edition double digi-CD that includes six tracks taken from the band’s Awoken by Crows and The Deceit EPs. I reviewed the band’s last full length Sui Caedere and found it that it made a strong first impression but some of the songs overstayed their welcome, but am interested in seeing how the group has continued to progress and if they’re fully reached the potential that was evident. Full details as well as a list of some UK tour dates for 2014 are below.

LILLE, France – Canto III, the third and newest full-length album from doom/death Goliaths, EYE OF SOLITUDE, is now available worldwide on Kaotoxin Records. The album is being sold as a digital download or limited-edition, hand-numbered double digi-CD that features six bonus tracks taken from the band’s 2012 & 2013 EPs – Awoken by Crows and The Deceit.

Music and movies news/reviews hub LairOfFilth.com has declared Canto III their Album of the Year for 2013. Stating that “the depths of despair, that this album reaches, is only matched by the beauty of the music,” the LairOfFilth.com placed the newest EYE OF SOLITUDE masterpiece atop a list of 20 of this year’s most acclaimed releases.

“Canto III destroys on just about every level, and is an absolute masterpiece of an album.”
– The Lair of Filth

“I honestly don’t consider Canto III just a new great release, Canto III is THE release that will definitely make Eye Of Solitude a bigger name in their scene, and no doubt, one of the best Funeral Doom Metal materials you’ll encounter this year.”
[10/10] – Destructive Music

“Showcasing some of the most emotionally driven music ever written, Eye of Solitude gives us pure metal gold with Canto III.” [5/5] – HeadbangOrGTFO.com
Eye Of Solitude is a Doom / Death band from London UK, formed in April 2010.

 

The music is inspired by emotional distress, inner pain and a cruel combination of negativity and grief. Dark shapes that terrorize the soul and keep it captive on the altar of suffering, until when not being able to breathe any longer, it finds its end – a supreme escape towards peace and eternal rest. The Eye Of Solitude is the heart of forests where unsettled spirits dwell, it is the fear within, the carnal ripping of every thought when abandoned in despair, it is nightmare and enlightenment, a fearsome tide that carries the soul and mind onto dark realms of insanity.

Mark Antoniades – guitars (Sidious)
