Mark Lindhout Aeturnus have no second, there's no band like it. They’ve been constantly reinventing themselves, remaining fucking extreme, honing that perfect style which is theirs: Aeturnus quintessence.

Bonus: They’re still playing this live — with enough force to level a forest! Favorite track: The Significance of Iblis.

H.L. I follow AETERNUS since the 90s when they came out with atmospheric and mighty black death metal milestones like "Beyond the wandering Moon" or "And so the Night became", two classic albums which I still listen to every now and then. "Heathen" goes in the same direction and
it is unmistakably AETERNUS in terms of the dark mood and heavy growling, it is just less epic and monumental than the early works. It appears more relaxed, perhaps a sign of maturity of this great band. Welcome back! Favorite track: How Opaque the Disguise of the Adversary.

about

Veteran Norwegian Dark Metallers AETERNUS are ready with "Heathen" - their long awaited, eighth full-length album. The seven-track album is a no-bullshit, straight to the point, heavy hitting attack on your ears and souls, from one of the true legends from the Bergen metal scene. The album was recorded at Bergen’s Conclave & Earshot studios, produced by Herbrand Larsen (ex-Enslaved), and is set for release by Dark Essence Records on October 12th.

One of the pioneers of the “Dark Metal” genre, AETERNUS was formed in 1993 by guitarist and frontman Ares. A veteran of the prolific Bergen Music Scene, Ares has played with some of the best bands that inhabit the Black and Extreme Metal genres, including icons such as IMMORTAL and GORGOROTH. Aeternus’ sound is one that combines features from both Black Metal and Death Metal, interspersed with haunting, melodic interludes, all topped off with skilled musicianship.

Commenting on what fans can expect from “Heathen”, an album which will also mark AETERNUS’ 25th Anniversary, the band had this to say: ”We feel we’ve produced seven great songs for “Heathen”, all with AETERNUS’ trademark sound, which is a mix of complex extreme music along with heavy riffs and of course some great melodic features. We are more than satisfied with the results”.
