The Best Aeternus Album!

"Well, maybe the best along with "Beyond the Wandering Moon", I love them both so much. Anyway, on to the music. Aeternus is a rather obscure "dark metal" (as Aeternus calls it) band from Norway. Their music is full of folk influences without getting to corny. Ares is one of the best guitarists ever, especially on tracks like "As I March" and "and So the Night Became". I'm rather glad this band isn't all popular like Dimmu Borgir because when that happens, the band sells out. (Just listen to "Stormblåst" and then "Spiritual Black Dimensions") However, Aeternus's newest, "Shadows of Old" took a step away from the folk, acoustic, dark metal sound and entered a more death-y realm. That is good, and anyone who likes this should buy "Shadows of Old". But this is better. Enter the cold realms of Aeternus. Buy this or "Beyond the Wandering Moon". You will be blown away by freezing winds."
Folk dark metal

"Aeternus shows more mature songwriting from Beyond the Wandering Moon on this album. Folk/classical guitar melodies often introduce the incredibly death metal-like riffs that become fairly predictable but still enjoyable after a few songs. The riffs used seem to rely upon folk/celtic phrasing that resolve into a death metal style violence sometimes. However, most of these songs do not intend to slam the listener upside the head with brutality. Instead, melody and a droning atmosphere is developed with Vrdrok pounding away in the background. One word to describe this atmosphere would be "spiritual." Technicality nor image are not the aims of this band. That in itself is unique considering the world black metal scene. The message of Aeternus matches quite strongly with the feeling that this album conveys. It's somewhat surprising that a band so focused on developing such atmosphere moved onto death metal. All in all, a very rewarding listen provided that one is not anticipating total melodic or straightforward black metal."
Totally blows away any of these "popular" bands..

"Though this isn't really "black" metal, it's got enough influence to be classified as that. No, it's more like "dark" metal, meaning it's a whole lot more evil than horrible little bands like Dimmu Borgir or Cradle of Filth. ...And so the Night Became has some death qualities to it meaning it's pretty brutal at times,and peaceful and beautiful at other times. This is a long CD, about an hour long, yet it doesn't seem to drag at all. There's so much diversity on this album it's incredible. Standout songs are "There's no wine like the blood's Crimson", "Warrior of the Cresent Moon", and "...And so the Night Became". You definitely need to get this album, and may i also suggest "Shadows of Old" and the new "Ascension's of Terror"."
