Ukrainian blackened death/doom entity 1914 have unleashed a re-issue of their 2015 full-length, Eschatology of War, this Friday, August 4, 2023! Fans of the band have long-awaited this physical re-release of 1914’s debut album inspired by the horrific stories of World War I, and finally it is here in several thrilling formats. Concurrently, 1914 have revealed a completely new “Eschatology of War” T-shirt design, that is already available to pre-order.

Inspired by the madness of war, ‘Eschatology of War’ faces various events from the past, such as the Battles of Gallipoli and Verdun, the gas attack at Ypres, the Brusilovsky breakthrough, the Christmas truce and the bombing of London, just to name a few.

‘Eschatology of War’ starts with the genuine intro “War In”, delivering tunes of an old military march, which was played for men going to war. “Frozen in Trenches (Christmas Truce)” presents a harmonious idyll to the melody of popular Christmas carol “Silent Night”, as the blaze of gunfire breaks in shortly after, while harsh vocals attack to transport nothing but death and decay. The album’s longest song, “Ottoman Rise”, stirs up the atmosphere even more with heavy guitar lines, thunderous black metal drumming and deep screams of despair. 1914’s uncompromising achievement of combining old school death and black metal, spiced with the approach of sludge and doom, can’t be pigeonholed.
