Echelon is an up and coming avant garde black metal act from Austria. From the very little music they have out currently it seems like they paint lush but dark soundscapes with their music. Dubbed "Philosophical Black Metal" on their press release these guys seem to be willing to push the genre to a whole new level, very much gelling with the work of bands like Agalloch and Alcest. Yet these guys seemingly have their own approach to ones of metals greatest up and coming genres. Although the band seems to have a rather negative view of the world I get the impression that, much like in the work of Albert Camus, their is a glimmer of hope in the darkness. With a release date set for late Autumn great things seem to be in the work for this Austrian five piece seems to have a lot of potential and seeing them grow in the next few months should be an exciting, and wholly interesting endeavor. Mysterious and beautiful I can not wait to see what the future holds for this quintet!
