2013 marks the 10 year celebration of EF's existence and what better way
is there than to celebrate this with the release of their 4th studio album!
We're happy and proud to announce that "Ceremonies" will be released in
September. In autumn of 2012 the band released a glimpse of their ever
evolving sound on the 10" vinyl EP "Delusions of grandeur", to rave reviews
in both the alternative press and the metal media - the sound of that EP
hinted at a new beginning; a potential infatuation with pop-ish song efforts?
This is one of EF's greatest strenghts. They appeal to both bearded indie
rockers, horn throwing metal heads and intensely staring post-rockers at
the same time. They can be heavy and fragile simultaneously, and they are
not affraid to push their own boundaries "Ceremonies" is once again an
expedition through the landscape of sound that EF conjures up with great
efficacy. Their love of melody and harmony alive, carried by heavy rythms,
only to be dispersed into a sonic aurora borealis; with improved vocal and
orchestral arrangements including more strings, horns, piano and even the
use of synthesizers. And, once again given the carefully sculpted mix
production by Magnus Lindberg (Cult Of Luna).
„EF sind ein weiteres Mal schlichtweg grandios in dem, was sie tun.“

„Wie durch eine mystische und allem zugrundeliegende Kraft fügt
sich alles in eine Ordnung, so offensichtlich und doch so vage wie
eine Eisblume am Fenster.“ Platz 3 im Visions Soundcheck (09 / 13)
