Norwegian "dark metallers" AETERNUS will release their new album, "Hexaeon", in October via Karisma/Dark Essence Records.
The band commented in a statement: "Now, a lot of you might wonder how come we recorded 'HeXaeon' last year and [are] releasing it now, a year after the actual recording.
"The reasons are that we parted from [Nocturnal Art Productions] and in between there we had things going on and things we had to wait for. We simply needed to wait a lot of things out and that's how it is sometimes.
"For those who still waits patiently, we tip our hats to you. Thanks for your patience, it'll be worth it, you'll see.
"So get ready (FINALLY) for 9 songs of new dark metal from the pounding norse
dark/death metal horde: AETERNUS!"
The follow-up to 2003's "A Darker Monument", "Hexaeon" was recorded at Grieghallen Studios in Norway and was once produced by Eirik "Pytten" Hundvin, who has previously worked with ENSLAVED and MÖRK GRYNING, among others.
AETERNUS recently acquired a new session guitarist by the name of Dreggen.
