The year was 1999 and I walked fully immersed in this abyss called extreme metal and the new generations of Black Metal were conquering the extreme music scene. Among many good and new outbreaks, treasures like this go unnoticed. If I had to make a top of the 10 best extreme metal albums of all time this one would certainly be among them. A British band called Ebonylake who only released a demo and this LP "On the Eve Of The Grimly Inventive, which for me is a true work of art.This is not recommended for those who need to take ansiolitics, to hear this is like attending to an totally out of control Ouija session or as if Edgar Allan Poe was in full delirium tremens. Highly recommended for those who have not heard it yet. Even today the original album is hard to find because the record label is now extinct. It was Cacophonous Records those who launched the early works of Craddle of Filth, when they still were doing good music. Technical Black Death Metal with influences from contemporary music and a really great gothic atmosphere. These were already avantgarde metal when not even the term was applied to these genres. Luckily it seems that twelve years after, they are planning to return with a new music project. I hope that the album will be reissued in the future, and that their new recordings will be at the same level that in the past.
