Hot News: Dark Metallers Aeternus Announce New Bassist

Norwegian Dark Metallers AETERNUS announced today that KRAKOW frontman and bassist Frode Kilvik, who had recently played on stage with the band for their appearance at this year’s Inferno Festival, would be joining as full-time bassist. As is so often the norm with bands, his role with KRAKOW, the band he co-founded in 2005, will remain unchanged.

AETERNUS itself was formed in 1993 in Bergen, Norway, by guitarist and frontman Ares, and, until the release of the latest album “…And The Seventh His Soul Detesteth”, on Dark Essence Records at the beginning of April, the band had remained relatively quiet since the release of the previous album “Hexaeon”. Aside from Ares, who is the only remaining member from the original lineup, and Kilvik, AETERNUS includes Specter (ex-GRAVDAL) on guitars and Phobos (GRAVDAL, MALSAIN, GALAR) on drums. Commenting on the new addition, Ares said: “There is no doubt that Specter and Phobos infused the band not only with new blood, but also with a fresh perspective. Frode’s arrival will expand on that for sure. It was obvious from his performance at Inferno that he has an incredible stage presence that fits perfectly with the attitude we all project when we play live, and his considerable musical skills are well-able to handle the sometimes complex demands of AETERNUS’ music . Not to mention the fact that he’s a great guy, which is probably even more important, and we are all very much looking forward to working as a unit”

“…And The Seventh His Soul Detesteth”, which is the band’s seventh album, was produced at the Conclave and Earshot studios in the band’s home town of Bergen by Bjornar E. Nilsen (VULTURE INDUSTRIES, BLACK HOLE GENERATOR) The first pressing of the album includes AETERNUS’ 1995 “Dark Sorcery” EP as a bonus. All music for the album is by AETERNUS, whilst the concept and lyrics are by HELHEIM’s V’gandr, who is also a former member of AETERNUS.
