- Kingdoms Of The Black Sepulcher (2018). On this release of AETRANOK we can
discover intensive Black Metal with sinister guitar riffing and screaming
vocals and keyboards. Yeah, keyboards! It is not that case when keyboards make
some melodic snotty stuff; instead it makes the sound of AETRANOK darker and
grimmer and lets you to feel the atmosphere of “Kingdoms Of The Black
Sepulcher.” Also I should to say that tracks are rhythmically varied and
interesting to listen to. The last track “Liber Khao Ad Veritas” is some
mantras with a sick sounding accompaniment and puts the final point in the
chaotic journey through the “Kingdoms Of The Black Sepulcher.”
black metal band based in Colorado, Aetranok has seen significant changes in
their early years. Cycling through various former members, a line-up was
solidified prior to the release of their second LP, and consists of five
members, including the band's founder and songwriter, Apophis (guitar /
vocals), Draka (vocals / guitar), Tenebros (keyboards), Thoros (bass), and
Xamot (drums / percussion).
band uses a wide arsenal of musical methods to bring their creations to life,
such as classical music ideology, complex percussion patterns, diverse lyrical
placement, and instrumental transitions.
in the early years of the band's first album (Grand Invokation), these elements
can be heard, shaping the band's musical direction into their second album
(Kingdoms of the Black Sepulcher).
expanded their influence from performing small local shows to travelling out of
their native state for larger events, such as South Dakota's Stygian
covered by local newspapers with the release of their first demo, this expansion
was not limited to their live performances, as their second LP and derived
videos were released / promoted with the cooperation of labels in two countries
(Satanath/Symbol of Domination, Death Portal), spreading the band's music over
half of the globe as well as catching the attention of widespread internet
sources such as the music page "No Clean Singing."
continued to apply disciplined musical techniques in their writing and
performance as they set their sights on the creation of several videos, such as
the title track, "Kingdoms of the Black Sepulcher," and other tracks
from the album of the same name, all of which deliver the full impact of the
band's aggressive musical approach.
