Aeternus Answers Fan Questions About New Album

Aeternus has posted a series of answers online from fan-submitted questions about the band's upcoming album. You can check out the band's answers below.

1. Is the new album longer than Hexaeon?

Yes it is. Hexaeon could have been longer than what it was, but it was what it is still is.

2. Do we go back to more atmospheric elements from the older (2 first) albums?

Yes, to an extent we do, but that depends on what one means, you know?!

3. Are there death metal elements as heard on the last 3 albums?

Yes there is, we still enjoy Death Metal and we do mix that into our style. Trying of course not to have the listener think about some other DeathMetal band and so forth, but what can you do?!

4. Are there acoustics and so forth on the next album?

We have some cool ideas and material this time with acoustic guitars yes.

5. Are you going back to the roots of the older Aeternus?

Understanding it correctly? ... No not really. We have some atmospheres that takes us/you back to the late -90's albums and so forth, but we think ahead, not backwards.

6. How's Phobos' drumming compared to Erik's drumming, is he true to Erik's style?

Phobos has his own style and what he gives the new songs with his drumming is a whole of a lot. He never tried copying Eriks drumming or style, but he has respected the foundation of drumming that Aeternus' drumming in all our songs have and he has kept some of that glow and heaviness. Phobos arranges the drums how he wants them, not how Erik would have wanted them.

7. When is the new album out?

Next year, Can't say much more than that. Before the end of spring 2012 we hope.

8. Will there be any touring?

We have no plans for that, though we'll put a lot of weight on doing a lot of live shows, for sure.

Ok, so that's that for now, it sums up pretty much what ppl are wondering about these days, thanks for asking about what's going on with us folks. We appreciate that a lot. Cheers!
