OWL to release AEON CULT EP on October 8th, 2015

OWL is set to return once again!

After two EPs, the crushing Into The Absolute (May 2014) and the monolithic dirge The Last Walk (November 2014), he is now back with Aeon Cult. His latest EP includes three ultra-heavy, crushing and apocalyptic songs, focused on a crushing groove for both strength and relief.

The EP will be released digitally via Bandcamp on October 8th 2015.

Regarding OWL’s continual progression, main man Christian Kolf states:
“OWL is still progressing its boundaries to manifest that this project is not about one style that is easy definable. It’s not about a marketing strategy, this is pure emotional stuff that comes directly from the heart. As always, OWL’s music is created quickly and spontaneously, at the right time and intuitively.” 

Beside his main band Valborg, who recently released their 5th album Romantik via Temple Of Torturous, Kolf is indeed a busy man: almost every 6 months he releases new music.

The mix and mastering, as well as drum programming was handled by the marvelous Auré Pereira (Uneven Structure) at Flatcurve Studio. A collaboration of trust and freedom that happened quickly through mutual respect. If you are on the same wave, no words are needed.

Kolf is already working on a full-length album feat. Patrick Schroeder on drums, who played on previous OWL releases Owl, You Are the Moon, I Am the Night, and Into The Absolute.

The artwork was done by Illustrator/CG Artist Peter Boehme.
