Toulouse-based Melodic Death Metal unit, Aephanemer, who burst into the heavy music scene in 2014 and just recently inked a worldwide deal with leading rock and metal label Napalm Records, will re-release the band’s second studio album on October 25th!
Integrating the elements of Scandinavian melodic death metal, Slavic traditional music and classical symphonics, the French four-piece band has developed a sound that could likely influence a whole new generation of metal. With their 2014 debut EP, Know Thyself, followed by the critically acclaimed full-length, Memento Mori, in 2016, Aephanemer quickly assembled an impressive, loyal fanbase from all over the world – stepping out of one of Europe’s best metal secrets to the biggest hopes in the new wave of melodic death metal! Due in part to their deft musicality, high-octane live performances at prestigious festivals alike Wacken Open Air and a fresh, modern sound, the band quickly gained high praise from both fans and critics alike, but also the well-deserved attention of Napalm Records. Aephanemer could not be more proud to have their latest, sophomore album, titled Prokopton and originally self-released in March 2019, reissued by the label, and for the first time on vinyl, too! To celebrate in perfect style, the band has just premiered a brand new music video to the blistering track “The Sovereign”!
“We are very happy to present this new video about a song we particularly appreciate: The Sovereign!” The band states. “We are grateful to the director and team which put all this together, it was a huge pleasure to shoot it and we hope you’ll like it as much as we do!
