Quebec, Canada-based metallers AETERNAM recently entered Badass Studios with engineer Jean-François “Jef” Fortin to begin recording their new album, “Moongod”, for a late 2012 release via Galy Records.
The cover artwork for the CD can be seen below.
Commented the band, “The album will contain nine songs plus a short and wicked intro. As far as it goes, there’s still a lot of blast beats and brutal stuff, but the music is way more epic and melodic, really more groovy and let’s say… dangerous? Lyrics deal a lot with religions (again), but the focus is more on pre-Islamic rites and actual stuff that is going on right now in the Middle East. Nevertheless, there’s still some new ideas and concepts; we do even have a song that talks about Mayan culture! Crazy stuff!”
“Moongod” track listing:
02. Invading Jerusalem
04. Iram Of The Pillars
05. Rise Of Arabia
07. Descent Of Gods
08. Idol Of The Sun
09. Hubal, Profaner Of Light
The song “Invading Jerusalem” can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.
