Norwegian Band Aeternus are releasing a new album very soon called ...And the Seventh His Soul Detesteth, through Dark Essence Records. It is known that Aeternus are not usually considered as a Black Metal band but a Death Metal and this album shows it well. Aeternus are one of the most acclaimed bands even though they have changed their style. Their fans are still loyal to them and they seem to never be able to disappoint them thankfully.
So their new album has a proper Death Metal cover, a bit gorish as you can see below. It will first be available as a limited edition, which means besides the 10 tracks, it will also include their first EP Dark Sorcery as a bonus.
It is very heavy release, with very bassy tunes even touching Doom style of music at times. It is not speedy or fast but very intense and groovy. Everything from top to bottom is dark, heavy, severe in a good way, serious, sober, replete.
Don't expect any Black Metal thing in here, there is not. This is a totally Death Metal album, and even though the public who usually follows Lachryma Christi are more into Black Metal, this is worth to be checked out.
