Aeternus teams up with The Mythology Agency

Dark Metallers AETERNUS, who are currently in the studio with producer Bjornar E. Nilsen recording what will be their seventh full-length album, have joined forces with the UK based Mythology Agency who will represent the band’s booking interests world-wide outside of their home country of Norway. Mythology ‘s Mark Lewis stated: “For many years AETERNUS have been a driving force in the Norwegian underground, quite possibly one of the first (second wave) bands to understand the limitations of the term “Black Metal” whilst retaining their destructive heaviness and dark aesthetic with authenticity. This is a criminally underrated band despite having an incredible back catalogue and dedicated fans throughout the world. There can be no doubt that a re-appreciation of their work by the metal press is long overdue – and as a result this is exactly the type of band that excites me personally. With a refreshed line-up and much anticipated new album being recorded Mythology are extremely proud and excited to being working with the band. “With wisdom we walk, with might we slay!”

AETERNUS was formed in Bergen in 1993 by guitarist and frontman Ares and is one of the pioneers of what the band calls “Dark Metal”, which meshes the sounds of Black Metal and Death Metal with superlative guitar playing and occasional haunting, melodic interludes. With seven years between the release of the band’s last album “Hexaeon” and the upcoming “And the Seventh His Soul Detesteth”, which is set for release later this year on Dark Essence Records, AETERNUS re-emerged recently with a new lineup that includes GRAVDAL members Phobos on drums and Specter on guitars. Following a stunning live comeback performance at the Hub and Huey festival in the Netherlands last month Ares commented, “Talking to Mark convinced us that he understood exactly what AETERNUS was all about, and the collaboration with Mythology couldn’t have come at a better time because AETERNUS is back with a vengeance and ready not only to remind our old fans of what they have been missing, but also show a whole generation of new fans the intensity and power that AETERNUS brings to everything we do.” More information about AETERNUS can be found on the band’s Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/Aeternusofficial
