In the space of three albums Ebony Tears have followed a couple different directions while staying within the basic field of death metal. On Tortura Insomniae the band is in the melodic NWOSDM camp, somewhere near where Fall Of The Leafe was at a similar time in their career, blending Maiden-ish melodies, violins, folk influences and the like, lending a bit of originality to their sound. By the time of Evil As Hell their sound had toughened up quite a bit, opting for a more brutal, less melodic death metal style.
Some time ago most of the members formed a sister band, Dog Faced Gods, exploring a more hardcore/death style that at the beginning was quite different from Ebony Tears, though the aforementioned Evil As Hell sounds much more like the Gods material. Interviews with the members indicated that they were not interested in keeping both bands together, and indeed it appears that Ebony Tears has broken up, with the focus now in Dog Faced Gods.
