اكوان (IR) - Two Centuries ov Silence
PEST277 | EP | Digipack CD
This is not those delusional tales uncovered from the mirage desert of ancient East, this is an ardent dedication and truthful manifesto written for the true blood and tear shed by Persian folks under those two centuries of silence and suffering. Over the past 5 years of this one-man project's existence, Akvan has already gain himself huge recognition among underground fans by standing as one of the most fervent deviant forces against the hegemonic oppression of religion. Drawing inspirations from Pre-Islamic Persian folklores and tales, as well as Iran's real historical events, Akvan has gradually matured his unique writing style that combines surging riffs of gloomy black metal with archaic yet solemn melodies of Persian traditional folk. This all cumulated in his most recent ep titled Two Centuries ov Silence released in the winter of 2020, a work that pays homage to Abdolhossein Zarrinkoub and his eponymous book. This ep will be reissued by Pest Productions this April, with three bonus tracks: 2 tracks of EP “ثریا / Soraya” and one single “حلبچه / Halabja”.
