EXCLUSIVE NAPALM RECORDS MAILORDER BUNDLE: AEPHANEMER "A Dream of Wilderness" Digipak CD + Cover T-Shirt
Following their much-acclaimed 2019 album, Prokopton, Toulouse based symphonic melodic death metal force AEPHANEMER returns with their third and thunderous full-length record, A Dream Of Wilderness, via Napalm Records! Starting out as an unbelievably successful DIY ride that suddenly turned towards international acclaim, the indisputable AEPHANEMER is one of the most exciting symphonic death metal sensations of the modern age. Fast-paced metal fronted by the guttural growls and fierce screams of extraordinary vocalist Marion Bascoul meet flickering twin leads, elements of Scandinavian death metal, Slavic traditional music and epic synths. If Prokopton was a noteworthy, impressive sophomore album from one of Europe’s best up and coming melodic death metal bands yet, A Dream Of Wilderness sees the French four-piece doubling down on its songwriting skills. Faster, tighter and heavier, AEPHANEMER’s upcoming third album unleashes an anthemic adventure of brutally fast riffage and epic melodies!
Each single on A Dream Of Wilderness provides an exciting and refreshing mixture of metallic elements that are both technically superior and emotively rousing. Tracks such as “Panta Rhei” showcase the band’s ability to combine blistering, speedy riffs with a thrilling symphonic sound that takes you on a journey right into a death metal fairy tale, while other tracks such as second single “Antigone” represent the dark and gloomier yet no less powerful side of the band – adding to the diverse blend A Dream Of Wilderness. Before the record allows you to escape into another dimension of blast beasts and furious riffage, “Le Radeau de La Méduse” – a heavy, razor-sharp death metal anthem delivered in both French and English versions – will have you headbanging as fast as you can. AEPHANEMER doesn’t seem to fear boundaries, and especially in this day and age of staying "true" and limited within a sound and scene, A Dream Of Wilderness is a welcome diversion and a brave record artfully blending brutally fast symphonic death and raw melodic metal into a multi-faceted epic.
