In Aeternum's history dates back as early as 1992, when the band called itself Behemoth. Why release an EP when one has recorded 4 albums and gained a certain notoriety in the last decade?
Well, In Aeternum's history hasn't been a dance on roses with several recordings that didn't see the light of day, several line-up changes, and Mel Gibson getting in the picture to almost sue them for using a picture from "The Passion of the Christ" as an album cover, thus leading to the withdrawal of the "No Salvation" mini-CD (2005).
But the Swedish death/black ensemble is now back with an updated line-up and signed on a new label, Pulverised Records. Alive and kicking tough.
The music' s quality and the skills are irreproachable, in the vein of Dissection's Storm of the Light's Bain.
Though not revolutionary original, this is a good production (Tommy Tägtgren, Tägtgren ftw), with heavy, tough melodies, and a couple of very good riffs. Unfortunately, it takes more to impress me musically in 2008.
Nevertheless, if you're looking for a new fist in the face to add to your record collection, it might as well be Curse of Devastation.
