There was a sad little thread on these guys, but I figured they were worth a new one.

Evoken are an American Doom/Death band, and they rule. I highly recommend their albums 'Antithesis of Light' and 'A Caress of the Void,' but its hard to go wrong with anything in their discography.

For fans of slow, heavy, and depressing stuff. My Dying Bride, Swallow the Sun, Ahab, etc...

I was contemplating making a thread on them awhile back, but I forgot.

But anyways, Antithesis of Light = fucking crushing. Great stuff.

They remind of this Funeral Doom band I used to listen to, Forgotten Tomb . Good Find Man.

I kind of lol'd. Then I figured out how scared I was.

This shizzle's badass.

Forgotten Tomb aren't FD in any way shape or form. Still good,..

And Evoken absolutely own. They remind me of Paradise Lost at times actually, in the riffing styles. Great ambience, they craft the songs really well, and probably one of the better percussion sections amongst those bands too.

Huge bump for Antithesis of Light. Great funeral doom.

Great band!,total dISEMBOWELMENT and Thergothen worship in the best way possible! Really solid discography,i think Embrace The Emptiness is my fave by them.Antithesis of Light would second because of those awesome blast beats in Solitary Ruin.I like how they do funeral doom in a more evil/death metal influenced in compared to stuff like Skepticism(though that style is bad ass also).

Acid probably makes you feel less like a hedonistic raver piece of trash, too.

I think it was this band and Ahab that got me into Funeral Doom and other kinds of extreme doom. Good band, Antithesis of Light is a great album for the genre.

Listening to Embrace The Emptiness right now and must say, everyone should give this album a listen.Especially at night walking down a dark alley,the atmosphere is unbelievable! Great dark melodies and crushing rhythm work.

Anyone would be interested in a guitar pro tab for the song "Antithesis of Light"? It's almost finished and I may consider uploading it to the site.

Nice band. I have not given them a listen in quite a while.

Are you talking about those weird sphincter-spasms where it feels like there's a ghost dick in your ass for a little while and then it just disappears?
