EOWA The Year Without a Summer - OUT NOW
The Year Without a Summer (2023)

The Year Without a Summer


Themed on the year 1816, The Year Without a Summer focusses on the hardships of a volcanic winter brought by the eruption of Mount Tambora - the deadliest volcanic activity in recorded history. Crops died from summery frost, society became restless with food shortages and small epidemics broke out amongst the feeble.

All music and lyrics written by Kris Mayers.

Hailing from HIGH PEAK in the UK.

Taking up a name inspired by a fallen Mercian king, Eowa is a project formed in 2022 by Stockport-born musician Kris Mayers. He handles all song writing duties as well as vocals, guitars and bass. Drums are performed by specially selected masters behind the kit who are willing to put up with his demands.

Drawing influence from various black, death and doom metal bands, Eowa begins by telling tales of the dread society had to endure at the dawn of the 19th century. This was mostly down to the unstoppable force of nature, but sometimes there is also a lesson to be learned from the tyranny in our past. Crimes against humanity should not be brushed under the carpet to be forgotten if we want them to be avoided.

Eowa is an independent project and is happily enjoying the freedom. However, if you want to get in touch about business you can email Kris using the contact button below and he will be more than happy to chat.

Just for the moment, Eowa is not able to perform live. The desire to do so is there though, and in time this will hopefully be possible.
