Eigenstate Zero is a promising progressive death metal band I discovered a long time ago through Submithub submissions. They are back with another powerful song, Calculating the Void, released as a single in 2020. For those who haven’t heard about Eigenstate Zero before, they are officially making releases since 2018. The band has started their careers with a single called; Of Mice and Men (2018), released six more singles, Nothing (2018), Black Celebration (2018), Through Flesh and Bone (2019), Fringe (2019), Comatorium (.Zero) (2019), Calculating the Void (2020), and one long-play album, Sensory Deception (2019). Now, please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.
Eigenstate Zero is one of the bands I am personally following for a long time. Their understanding of music, way of crafting songs speak for itself, making a big difference in their specific genre. First of all, the band immediately earned our respects with their impressive discography. We all know how challenging and difficult it is to maintain a professional musical career for any artist/band who are not managed by a professional/label or periodically touring. Eigenstate Zero has taken the bar even higher, achieved everything in a project with a band form, but by one exceptional person. They are a band when played live, but actually, one person is doing all the magic. Just think about it for a second.
Calculating the Void is a monstrous sounding song with tons of progressive and old school death metal elements. The song has more than satisfying fan guitars riffage all the way through, never lets down their fans in this way. The journey starts with a powerful gallop and evolves into more melodic and calmer sections over the ending. The overall energy of the song is phenomenal, where the atmosphere is mostly tense. What I like the most about Eigenstate Zero, in general, is that although they have the old school death metal mentality, they are always open-minded for improvements. They never copy or follow anybody’s path, as you can also hear on this example.
