In some ways Eikonos music has a retro-feel to it, harkening back to the early days of video gaming, while at the same time showing an almost futuristic utopia, one that starts to crumble within a matter of minutes before turning into a dystopia. The balance is maintained throughout his music and while some tracks might be a bit 'out there' to some, the rewards come to those with an open mind and above all a love for music and creativity. In summary; If you're looking for something truly unique that challenges your perceptions and shows you the true scope of what music can be when taken into strange new territories then Eikonos should be right up your alley! Eikonos (aka JRole, Svarthjelm, Johnny Hell) has several other ongoing projects, Catonium - neoclassical and dark ambient to more industrial tones, with some darkwave planted in the middle. Machine music in its most experimental form.
Teratogenesis - a non genre-bound metal project with roots in black and death that borrows inspiration and sounds from dark cabaret/circus music mixed with surreal horror sounds.
