Irish Melodic Black Metal band Aeternum Vale have released the first track from their upcoming album – ‘Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges’ for a free listen on Soundcloud.
Our own noble Scriba Pontificus here at METAL AS RELIGION had a listen to the new track: “Smash The Pillars”. He had this to say:
A reverberating guitar quaffs too much rancid spirit – before fizzing out in a spiral of inhuman majesty. And so the sounds spin out their yarns of barbed regret.
The vocal is fierce – yet lonely- and the riffs playfully register surprise as the pace quickens.
Then a flaming tendril of passionately repeated guitar-cries throws up a bitter peel.
The unceasing majesty and smoky nobility continues right until the rhythm drops. And then this becomes a pounder and a grinder.
Pure nefarious magic. Go look it up.
