EWIGKEIT was formed as an experimental Black Metal band in 1995/96. Initially inspired by the earlier Black Metal - Ewigkeit's first album 'Battle Furies' was recorded and released in 1997. This was soon followed up by the more bleak and symphonic 'Starscape' in 1999 (for reviews, see magazine clippings at the Official Facebook page HERE)
In 2000, Ewigkeit recorded the album 'Land of Fog', which paid homage to the more classic sound of the 70's, with a post Black Metal backbone (a sound that has since become common-place with the rising popularity of progressive metal). As the then label folded, Ewigkeit was put on hiatus. During these missing years, Ewigkeit concentrated on his other lack Metal project The Meads of Asphodel and his collaboration with Jimmy Cauty on the multi-media project 'Blacksmoke'.
Eventually, Land of Fog was released in 2003, and gained a lot of recognition on the European underground metal scene. A follow-up 4th album titled 'Radio Ixtlan' was recorded and eventually released by Earache Records to great acclaim. This was then followed by the most experimental Ewigkeit album to date, 'Conspiritus' ; a conspiracy themed concept album which fused post-Black Metal to a cinematic industrial rock.
In 2005, Fogarty burned all his record contracts (video above), put Ewigkeit into hiatus and founded 'The Bombs of Enduring Freedom' to continue his experimentation with electronic music and his growing flirtation with anarchic politics. During this time, he also produced the Old Forest album 'Tales of the Sussex Weald'.
In 2011, Fogarty began to record extreme metal once more, and by the end of 2012 had accumulated enough songs for a 6th album. The album is titled 'Back To Beyond', and displays a ressurgence of the extreme metal origins of Ewigkeit. All musical aspects of the past 5 albms are revisited, albeit in a symphonic and more extreme style than the previous 3 albums. (To give the album a more extreme edge, the logo was redesigned by 'Lord of the Logos' Christophe Szpajdel - designer of the logos of many Black Metal bands, including Emperor, Enthroned, Borknagar, Old Mans Child etc...)
The lyrics on BACK TO BEYOND deal with existential crises, life beyond life and defiance in the face of the demise of everything we know and cherish. A short taster for the album is below ;
