En Ergô Einai, the gripping new full-length from Swiss atmospheric black metal duo AARA, is out TODAY via Debemur Morti Productions.
With En Ergô Einai, AARA presents a landmark of thoughtful, unorthodox black metal. Drawing inspiration from the Age of Enlightenment in eighteenth century Europe, En Ergô Einai serves as a tribute to the duality in man’s pursuit of perfection and the futility found therein. Like strokes of inspiration, exquisite guitar melodies weave a fluent plethora of moods and emotions, showcasing a heavy classical influence. Undulant blast beats and biting screams serve as a counterpoint to pristine atmospheres and ethereal choirs, an obstinate reminder of the finite nature of man and his creations.
Stream En Ergô Einai in its stunning entirety at THIS LOCATION.
En Ergô Einai, which includes a guest appearance by Blut Aus Nord’s Vindsval, was recorded, mixed, and mastered at Chäuer Studios Bärn with cover art by Michael Handt, and artwork design by Naturmacht Studios. The record will be released on April 3rd in digipack CD, digital, and limited-edition vinyl formats. Find ordering options below.
“AARA‘s music feels celebratory and devastating at the same time as this band looks back at a time when ambition was high, and efforts sometimes had to go down in flames in the name of progression. AARA marks that attitude of trying to crash through the ceiling of potential on a record that should stay in the minds and hearts of listeners for a long time to come.” — Meat Mead Metal Pick Of The Week
