Sweden's Anachronaeon has revealed the cover artwork for the band's upcoming album "The Ethereal Throne" through Death Metal Baboon. You can check out the artwork below. A teaser trailer for the album is also available by heading over to this location.
NoCleanSinging.com has posted an editorial online on the pros and cons of covers, after hearing the Anachronaeon cover of Iron Maiden's "Wasting Love." An excerpt from the editorial can be viewed below.
Song covers that just faithfully reproduce an original song don’t add anything. Why would anyone listen to a reproduction when you can listen to the original? That point seems inarguable. So, if a cover needs to be different from the original to be worth hearing, what makes a cover succeed and what makes it fail?
I think the answer depends to some extent on the popularity of the original song and how you, as a listener, feel about it. If it’s a great song, a well-remembered song, the kind of song that welcomingly unfolds in your head as soon as you hear the first few notes, then a band that alters that song in a cover is playing with fire. I think for a cover of that kind of song to work, the cover band almost has to change it dramatically. Making minor alterations around the edges can be jarring — you mind is playing one thing in your head from memory, and here and there the cover recording is doing something else that you’re unlikely to hear as an improvement on the original.
On the other hand, changing a beloved original song in dramatic ways can be equally off-putting — or it can be a wonderful surprise. It all depends on whether the cover song can stand on its own as something interestingly different, on whether the cover band has found something in the original that it can run with, maintaining a connection to the original but spinning out a variation that can stand on its own two legs as a good piece of music. There’s no formula for how to do this.
Two covers I’ve heard recently (and written about) jump to mind as examples of what works. One is Amon Amarth‘s cover of System of A Down‘s “Aerials”, which appeared as a bonus track on Surtur Rising. Another is Torture Division‘s cover of a Mastodon song called “Iron Tusk." Both songs imprint the cover band’s own particular style on the original, creating something different and good, without completely losing connection with the originals.

Sweden's Anachronaeon has issued the following update about posting an Iron Maiden cover song online:
"Hey guys... it's been a while since we've updated this site but now we actually have something.
We are releasing a cover song as a free download... Iron Maiden's 'Wasting Love' (you can also hear it here at MySpace).
"In our version it is not a ballad anymore, and we interpreted it freely, so don't expect a version true to the original. You can download the zip-bundle (includes the song in .mp3 and .wav format, a little cover, and some release notes for the song) here. You can view a crappy video that we made for it below.
"Smerdulak has begun working on the cover art for 'The Ethereal Throne.' We are so eager to see what he will come up with... it is said to be really dark. Hopefully the release plans of getting this album out in 2011 can be true.
"Soon we begin working on the next album. We're gonna have a little break for two weeks, then we get to work! Join us on facebook (since that's where the most action is today, like it or not) here. Thanks for supporting us!"
A teaser trailer for "The Ethereal Throne" is also available for viewing at this location.

Swedish dark metallers Anachronaeon, which features members in the black metal band Eyecult, has posted a teaser trailer about the concept of their forthcoming album called "The Ethereal Throne," to be released in 2011 by the Russian label Stygian Crypt Productions.
According to the band, "'The Ethereal Throne' takes a dive into the dark religious mind of a serial killer, and follows his inner struggle on this musical journey between the boundaries of epic heavy metal and blasting extreme metal."
