Ether Coven: The Bolt Or The Blade

South Florida post metal band, Ether Coven, have just released their new EP, Language Is The Instrument Of The Empire, through their own imprint Horned & Blind. The three-song release follows the band's albums Human Error, There Is Nothing Left for Me Here and Everything Is Temporary Except Suffering from 2016, 2017 and 2020 respectively, and it's a rather massive and dynamic endeavor, lifting from doom, sludge and post hardcore, to evolve into something massive and quite creditable. 

The new EP was written before Ethen Coven's latest full length, and it was engineered by Daniel Colombo (Gouge Away, Orthodox, XBishopX), features contributions by Eva Hall (Power Alone, ex Gather,) Brian Hillhouse (Seraphim, Seraph/The Light, The Animal’s Comfort,) and David Paul (Fero Lux, Ljesus).

"It’s a quote that the Spanish colonialists lived by when they wanted to fully conquer a people," guitarist and vocalist Peter Kowalsky saysof the EP's title. "This EP is a harsh critique of normalization and the culture it protects. We never question much about our culture which is harmful to our health and happiness."

Immense and imposing on every level, the new EP sees Ether Coven bringing their comprehensive post metal sound to maximum strength, while the harness the existentialist attributes embedded into the band's DNA. 

In addition to the digital and physical releases (12-inch and cassette) Ether Coven is teaming up with vegan company XVX Soap Co for a limited edition soap and artwork collaboration. All proceeds from that item will benefit Shelter Farm Sanctuary.
