Sulphur Aeon – Seven Crowns And Seven Seals

Silence…then a moody guitar melody culminates in a faint whisper: “Sie sind hier…”. Vocalist M.’s brief utterance is German for “they are here” and of course refers to the Ancient Ones of Lovecraftian lore central to SULPHUR AEON’s lyrical, conceptual, and visual cosmos. Those ‘sombre tidings’ are yet just a short prelude to the crushing, pitch black waves that will wash over you once the quintet swings the almost seven minutes long ‘hammer from the howling void’. Marking their fourth record to date, and first in five years, the opening track to “seven crowns and seven seals” is a bold statement defining the group’s approach and ambition. Just like Lovecraft invented a whole world of unspeakable creatures and supernatural horrors during the early 20th century, SULPHUR AEON, more than ever, dug deeper into their own artistic range, crafting an album of equal otherworldly beauty and impact.

Filed under blackened death metal, and inspired by the likes of Morbid Angel, Dissection, Behemoth, Emperor, to name but a few, creative mastermind T. gradually transformed SULPHUR AEON from a duo project in 2010 to a much respected entity within the international metal circuit relying on quality releases first and foremost, and performing live selectively. Never shy of admitting their humble roots in the former industrial heart of Germany, T. and M., drummer D. – who joined the fold in 2011, and both guitarist A., and bassist S. who became members of the cult in 2018, have grown into an impressive, tight union poised to forge something unique and memorable.
