On July 7th, German black metal outfit Servant is set to unleash their ferocious second album, “Aetas Ascensus”. With its nine explosive tracks, the album is a masterful blend of rage, melody, and profound emotion.
The music sees an evolution from the band’s debut, incorporating more fierce and wild elements while simultaneously heightening the melodic and emotional components. Lyrical themes revolve around diverse religious texts, with a distinct focus on gnosis. Politically charged, the album includes narratives of emperors and kings who, succumbing to madness, have catalyzed their own downfall and the destruction of their realms.
Ahead of the album release, Servant has premiered a video for “To Crown A Beast”, an early taste of the 48-minute long album. This captivating visual is now available on the MDD YouTube channel. The tracklist for “Aetas Ascensus” can be found below.
“Aetas Ascensus” is available for pre-order as a CD through various outlets and mail orders. A vinyl release is also planned for later this year. Stay tuned for more information.
