AGATUS unleashed "GILGAMESH" (EP), 2/27/2012 via THOSE OPPOSED RECORDS.
FROM HELLS HEADBANGERS:
On the symbolic date of October 9th, Hells Headbangers is proud to present long-awaited third album of legendary Greek black metal institution Agatus, "The Eternalist." Rendered in warm analog tones, gritty but full of life, Agatus' "The Eternalist" is an epic journey across the hinterlands of the imagination. In many ways, it follows the heavy metalled direction of 2002's celebrated The Weaving Fates but incorporates the proggier textures of 2012's Gilgamesh EP, thus ushering in a new era for the band that's respectful of the past but sets its sights on the future - and the unknown.
Kaleidoscopic in its vision, with "The Eternalist," Agatus set a clear course toward older sounds and atmospheres: a golden ratio combining the feel of NWOBHM with '70s rock and everything that you have come to know and anticipate of these two brother musicians over the years. Vorskaath adds, "We decided to take an old-style hard rock/heavy metal approach that is manifest on every aspect of the album, from the performances and recording to the sounds we chose and the way we mixed. From the very first notes of "The Eternalist," that feel is unmistakably there.”
With Hells Headbangers' full backing of this unique and visionary cult, Agatus will reclaim the momentum achieved during the early 2000s and venture forward into previously untouched realms of glory. Hear the first glimpse of glory with the track "Perils of the Sea (Part II)" at Hells Headbangers' Bandcamp HERE, where the album can also be preordered....
We are pleased to announce the official release date for THE ETERNALIST which is set for October 9, 2016 (Hells Headbangers Records)
A full song is currently available for digital downloading through the bands official Bandcamp site www.agatus.bandcamp.com and all profit is directly supporting the band in its future endeavours.
The full album will be available for pre-order on multiple platforms, so stay tuned for details.
Thank you for your support. Follow the journey of The Eternalist!
