Aeternus was formed by [url=http://www.discogs.com/artist/Ares+(4)]Ares[/url] in 1993. The band is located in Bergen/Stavanger, Norway.

Aeternus stands as the creators of an extreme music-style that is defined best as dark metal.

Fast, aggressive, intense and brutal, yet calm and beautiful at times. The lyrics within the realm of Aeternus are to be dark as the music. Thoughts and emotions are usually the main key element behind their darkened lyrics. Bringing up atmospheres of warriors and battles and the mystic and mighty powers of nature.

In 1994, Aeternus released their one and only demo: "Walk My Path", which sold around 400 copies in the underground scene.

In 1995 Aeternus signed a small contract with the Czech label [l=View Beyond Records], who later the same year released the legendary "Dark Sorcery" miniCD. This material led to the interest from various labels. In 1996, Aeternus decided to sign with the Dutch label [l=Hammerheart Records]. During the years Aeternus have released several albums and became a strong name in the metal scene worldwide.

Aeternus has always been an active live band and have become a well-established live act.

They have toured with bands such as Deicide, Mayhem, Red Harvest, Cannibal Corpse, Emperor, Aura Noir, Marduk, Behemoth, Limbonic Art, etc. After the 2001 album "Ascension of Terror", Aeternus departed with Hammerheart Records. Shortly after Aeternus' crushing performance on the Inferno Festival 2002, the band inked a 3-album deal with [url=http://www.discogs.com/artist/Samoth]Samoth's[/url] [l=Nocturnal Art Productions]. Only one records was released under the NAP banner in the end.

In March 2006 the band released their 6th full-length album through new label mates [l=Dark Essence Records]. The album, entitled "HeXaeon" was recorded in Grieghallen Studios, June 2004 with the legendary Pytten as producer, but not released until 2 years later due to some unforeseen hurdles in the process. In February 2006 Erik also decided to throw in the towel after a good 13 years in the band. Shortly after Erik’s departure Aeternus re-emerged as a 4 piece band, introducing 2 new members to the world at the first live appearance in nearly 3 years at Hole In The [l=Sky Festival Bergen].

Current line-up:

Ares – vocals & guitars

Dreggen – guitars

V’gander – bass

Terris – drums
