SPAN OF ÆONS is one of the most dynamic and contemporary Death Metal albums in years! However, as much as you may love all the Death Metal classics, this new project proves that clever songwriting, brutal riffs and musical craftmanship will always prevail.
"SPAN OF ÆONS is the result of our enforced period of isolation last year. After the release of The Skleleton Spectre EP in April 2020 we remained busy with constant songwriting and rehearsal sessions. What emerged out of this is a wealth of new material, which shimmers with a directness and vibrancy that comes from the spontaneous connection during the rehearsal sessions that took place from August `til November 2020."
While the album invokes a morbid mood and the dark horror that people love death metal for, the overarching theme is Dante's Divine Comedy. There is a lot of symbolism associated with numbers throughout the novel. There are nine circles of hell, and the nine songs of SPAN OF ÆONS are connected to these circles, which are Limbo, Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Wrath, Heresy, Violence, Fraud and Treachery.
What SPAN OF ÆONS demonstrates most clearly is this: if you really appreciate top-notch Death Metal, then listen to what DAETH DAEMON are doing, because SPAN OF ÆONS is fast, brutal and heavy as hell!
"Since all of our band members are longtime fans of PUNGENT STENCH, it's a huge personal milestone and honor for us to have Martin Schirenc's unique vocals on Walls of Enslavement and, damn, it was no coincidence that BELPHEGOR's former vocalist Mäxx Crusher is on Sulphur Angel because Satan meant for us to meet him!"
