AARA premiere “Triade II: Hemera”


When the untamed vocals intertwine skillfully with Christian sounding choirs, the Jewish shofar horn or the traditional Indian vocal samples, then this special way of playing Black Metal sounds inspiringly different and very, very exciting.” (Legacy Mag)

On May 13th, Swiss band AARA will officially release their fourth album and second part of the Melmoth trilogy. “Triade II: Hemera” displays six sinister, yet highly melodic and atmospheric Black Metal hymns. On their latest works of Art, AARA continue to develop and enrich their sound by integrating, for example, Christian choirs, the Jewish shofar horn, and traditional Indian vocal samples into the mix.

Vocalist and lyricist Fluss comments on the conceptual background of these new sounds:

The incorporation of these elements resulted primarily from the template of “Melmoth the Wanderer”. On “Triade I: Eos” religion mainly plays a role in the form of Catholicism. However, in these next chapters of the book which form the background of “Triade II: Hemera” there are many different religious and ethnic elements to be found. In order to represent this and to transport the atmosphere present in the book, we needed to use various different musical elements. We personally have a fascination for different religions interpreted as cultural testimonies, without being believers ourselves. So, we don’t want to glorify or criticize anything.

The album is available to stream on the Black Metal Promotion YouTube channel. Listen here!

Triade II: Hemera” will be released on CD, vinyl and digitally on May 13th. Pre-orders for all physical formats and high-quality merch are possible via the label’s EUUS and Bandcamp shops.


Switzerland’s AARA was founded in 2018 by vocalist Fluss and multi-instrumentalist Berg to create art highly influenced by atmospheric Black Metal. Sporting an epic, classical feel, their sweeping compositions aim to take the listener through the darkest alleys of human existence.

Soon after releasing their debut record “So fallen alle Tempel” in early 2019, AARA joined forces with Debemur Morti Productions, releasing their mosaic EP “Anthropozän” that same year.

Barely a year after their debut, AARA unveiled a new full-length record in April of 2020. A conceptual look into Europe’s Age of Enlightenment, “En Ergô Einai” sees AARA take their accomplished sound to new heights of mature artistic expression. Opened with a haunting acoustic intro courtesy of Vindsval (BLUT AUS NORD), “En Ergô Einai” is a triumph of fluid melodic euphoria and classical elegance, setting an even higher watermark in a bright, young discography. The third album and beginning of a trilogy, namely “Triade I: Eos“, was released in March 2021. In this epic and dramatic new work of art, AARA are interpreting the Gothic novel “Melmoth The Wanderer” (1820) of Irish writer Charles Robert Maturin.

Venturing forth into the next chapters of Maturin‘s work, AARA crafted the second part of their trilogy, “Triade II: Hemera“. The six tracks of brutally melodic, top-tier Black Metal will be released on May 13th, 2022. Recordings for the third and final album of the Melmoth trilogy have already begun.
