Aephanemer truly rewrote the way Melodic and Symphonic Death Metal is looked at today. The band rapidly went from unknown shredders to a known value by which the speedy factions of these genres shall be measured. Now, they are back with Panta Rhei, a first glimpse into their upcoming record A Dream of Wilderness, out in November 2021.

Usually, I am not too fond of the metal-band-in-a-cave theme with extended theatrics by hairy metal band dudes and dudettes. Yet here, first ’tis a modern cave with screens, so they’re forgiven.

But more importantly, the riffing and … [...] Click to raid more!
