Promising New York Death Metal Masters AEVITERNE Unveil Their First Offering Named "Spring of Mirrors"
"'Spring of Mirrors' serves as a good introduction to Aeviterne, as it is the culmination of our past band experiences and demonstrates our current collective interest as songwriters. Thematically anchored on two guitar riffs, the song expands through a series of rhythmic and timbral (via field recordings, synths, drones, etc.) variants," Drummer Ian Jacyszyn states. "[It's] inspired by the repetitiveness of bands like Killing Joke and Godflesh, it’s an attempt to maximize the potential of the standardized linear death metal song structure, using fewer components."
Indeed, this very much the case for the newly anointed New York death metal group. As Jacyszyn said, the first piece of music recorded under the Aeviterne moniker is certainly quite an introduction. Out of the metallic trappings of bands like Flourishing, Castevet, and Artificial Brain comes a new project that immediately shows great promise. On "Spring of Mirrors," Aeviterne roars forth with almost Immolation-esque might. Their collective—and undoubtedly genial—brain power makes for a scintillating and refreshing debut.
