Aspherium Release ‘The Embers of Eternity’

Aspherium have released their third album, The Embers of Eternity. The progressive death metal band from Norway released their debut album to great reviews in 2011 and have been building on that success ever since with their second album “The Fall of Therenia and tours with Decapitated.

The third Aspherium album “The Embers of Eternity” moves away from the sci fi themes of the last album, and dives deeper into our real world. Taking place in a future where humanity has ultimately destroyed theplanet, this concept album deals with the struggles that we face as a species.

There’s a lot wrong with the world, but are we really doing anything about it? Racism, hatred, school shootings, fear, war, hunger, disease, greed, global warming, pollution, natural disasters and overpopulation are just some of the things that we need to humanity needs to deal with. Musically, the album is as usual a varied journey across different metal genres. There is a base of death and thrash metal, with modern metal, progressive elements, black metal sections as well as melodic and mellow passages.The album was mixed by Linus Corneliusson at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden.And mastered by Tony Lindgren at the same studio.

“The Embers of Eternity’ was inspired by all the disturbing events going on in the world today, and how a lot of people refuse to look at what is really going on.
The drums were recorded at the same studio as our first album. Apart from the drums, the rest of the album was recorded in our home studios.
We got to borrow a bunch of percussion instruments from a music school to record the percussion part on ‘Beneath the Shattered Sky.’
The album was actually done a year before it was released. We just had to wait for studio stuff that was beyond of our control.”
