AephanemerSupport Acts: tba Genre: Melodic Death Metal
Integrating elements of melodic death metal, classical symphonies and Slavic traditional music, the southern French band Aephanemer have developed a sound that could likely influence a whole new generation of metal. After bursting onto the scene in 2014 with their debut EP Know Thyself, followed by their first and critically acclaimed full-length Memento Mori in 2016, the four-piece quickly began growing a loyal fanbase – ultimately laying the foundations of the symphonic melodic death metal
Due in part to their deft musicality, impressive live performances (including at festivals like Wacken Open Air) and fresh, modern sound, the band quickly gained the attention of leading rock and metal label Napalm Records, who re-released Aephanemer’s sophomore album, Prokopton, in October 2019.
With the release of their new album ‚A Dream of Wilderness‘, mixed by the legendary Dan Swanö and mastered by Mika Jussila from the prestigious Finnvox Studios, Aephanemer intends to establish itself as one of the leaders of the symphonic melodic death metal genre.
