Bio: Eggs of Gomorrh were founded in 2008 by two guys who had a mission – putting their insane and aggressive visions into the music. The name of the band gives you an idea of what to expect. As they say – eggs are a symbol of something new, birth and a new beginning. Gomorrh stands for twisted and dirty perversion, and that is exactly what you get from them.
In 2011, guys from EoG recorded their first demo “Rot Prophet”, and they did everything themselves! They did the recording, mixing, compressing and what not in a storage unit, 4 floors below the ground level (that’s what I call an underground band!). Musicians from Eggs of Gomorrh themselves were not entirely happy with the quality of the obtained product so finally in 2016 they released their debut album, which contains some improved compositions from the demo, but recorded with much better quality. The name of the debut album is also “Rot Prophet” because not only the lyrical concept is the same, but it serves as some sort of extension of the demo as well.
“Rot Prophet” is the kind of an album that will knock your socks off. It’s very brutal, very raw and very sick. The tempo is insane and the vocals are extremely violent, as proper brutal black metal should be. If you have problems with understanding the lyrics, this album describes mainly the apocalyptic word where all sorts of deviations are taking place. You can expose yourself to the vision of the word where things like drowning, tortures, madness, acts of vulgar and blasphemous sex with other lovely things are being performed, just before the whole word goes down and finally finds a sweet release in the inevitable death. You may think that this is just thoughtless dazzling with violence, but there is a mission in this madness The goal of the EoG is to force their audience to listen about dreadful cruelty, since in real life people usually ignore and just look away from any kind of atrocity that makes them feel uneasy. Their music should be treated as a punishment and a catharsis at the sametime.
Eggs of Gomorrh music is being strongly inspired by 90’s Parisian satanic black and death metal performed by, for example, Antaeus. You can also hear influences of Arkhon Infaustus, Eternal Majesty, Hell Militia, Conqueror and Sarcofago. Here, have a taste of it by listening to this insane track:
And now, behold! Eggs of Gomorrh is working on new material now! A new EP “Outpregnate” is going to be released very soon, and a work on another full length album is in progress. Stay tuned if you crave for more mind blowing beastliness!
Since 2008 band has evolved and the line-up had changed few times, but the core concept of EoG stayed always the same – smash the listener with their brutal and insane art. Now EoG is a quartet but they make even more noise than a horde of furious savages and gigs are even more impressive. EoG is trying to play live regularly and so far they were sharing the stage with, for example, Grave Descrator, Atomic Aggressor, Diabolic Messiah, Volcano, Archgoat, Bolzer and Sadistic Intent. Their music shows are being just a display of sick hate and relentless violence. They do not waste their time with talking with the audience. They enter the stage, invoke chaos with their brutal music and finish, leaving speechless people who don’t know what the hell did just happen. In their own words: “playing live would be one of the most important things: make yourself heard and cover the audience with blood and filth“.
If you feel like taking a bath in all the imaginable horrors delivered by the EoG sick compositions, you will have a chance to do it very soon. On 30th of June in Ecurie in Geneve, EoG will celebrate their 10th anniversary by playing a special gig along with Supayniyux and Nansis. Come and surrender to the overwhelming chaos!
