I sat here for quite a while trying to figure out how to pronounce “Ephemerist” before listening to their track “SICK”. I still don’t think I know how to say the band name quite right but I do know that, at the end of the day, the pronunciation of the name has no affect on how amazing “SICK” is.
I feel like this entire song is a breakdown which is just one of its many selling points. From the very first few seconds of this song, you are hit with a wave of aggression and emotion and that wave never really lets you up for air. I mean, don’t get me wrong, there are some perfectly placed breaks throughout this quick three minute and ten second track but, even during those breaks, I feel like I was still trying to figure out what just happened so I couldn’t really enjoy them. With a very metalcore vibe with with elements of nu-core and even electro-metal thrown in there, just one listen to “SICK” will have you hooked on Ephemerist so check it out!
