“Heathen”, which will mark the band’s 25th Anniversary,  is all that you would expect from AETERNUS, which was founded in Bergen by guitarist and frontman Ares, and is one of the original pioneers of the Dark Metal genre. The seven-track album is packed full of AETERNUS’  trademark sound, which combines features from both Black Metal and Death Metal . The complex extreme music is spiced with heavy riffs and melodic interludes, performed to perfection by vastly experienced, and extremely skilled, musicians.

With artwork by Tom Korsvold and photography by Ares, tracklisting for “Heathen” is as follows:

  1. Hedning
  2. The Sword of Retribution
  3. Conjuring of the Gentiles
  4. The Significance of Iblis
  5. How Opaque the Disguise of the Adversary
  6. Boudica
  7. ‘Illa Mayyit
