Age Of Iron
Eschaton are Ancient Methods & Orphx.
“First, time will tumble and then the earth. The clouds begin to race, the earth boils over; this is the sign. This is the beginning of the end”
Those who are familiar with their techno will know that the genre doesn’t get much more intense than it does on the music of Orphx and Ancient Methods. The former are Canadian duo Richard Oddie and Christie Sealey, whose 20 odd years of experience has seen them release an extensive catalogue of albums, cassettes and EPs, most notably for Adam X’s Sonic Groove label. Formerly a two piece act, Ancient Methods meanwhile is the current solo concern of a Berlin-based artist who has worked alongside Adam X, Kareem, Regis and whose music is similarly relentless in tone.
The three artists unite now under the name Eschaton for this four track EP on Token.
