Just like Dawn or Arckanum, In Aeternum were one of the many Swedish bands gathered around the Necropolis Records banner in the late ’90s, at a time when the country’s classic death and black sounds had started to merge and Peter Tägtgren’s Abyss studio was the go-to place to do albums when you were speeding along the devil’s highway. Alas, by the time the new century came around, things had gone sour but, unlike others, In Aeternum survived the blast, only to be plagued by line-up changes and even more business problems to the point where, without warning, founding member David Larsson decided to unexpectedly pull the plug in 2007 after four albums. He now points his finger at those “greedy organizers who try to rip you off and treat you like shit. I guess I simply lost interest in being part of the scene. It even took me a few years to start going to gigs again and appreciate that.” Yet, while their drummer Perra Karlsson was still in Nominon and had joined Deströyer 666, they finally started talking at the end of 2014 about a possible future. “We had tried once before but I wasn’t comfortable with it back then. What ultimately led me to come back with In Aeternum was a recording I did with a friend of mine in a project called Coven Of Death and that was so fun to do that thanks to that, we are now back on track and hungry for more.” It must have felt pretty frustrating for their latest bass player Claes Ramberg (ex-Godhate) who joined only to see the band going on hiatus after recording their ‘Curse Of Devastation’ EP. “Well, he came onboard in 2005 and toured with us on the Belphegor and Arkhon Infaustus tour so he had been with the band for over two years when we stopped. But it was actually even more frustrating being in than out of the band at the time. So if we hadn't stopped we would have destroyed it for good!” Instead of coming up right away with a new full-length, they’ve decided to put out another EP. Their first not recorded with Tommy Tägtgren (Peter’s brother) in the producer’s chair since 2000, it includes two new tracks plus two remakes: one of an old classic of theirs (‘Majesty Of Fire’, opener of their debut album) and one of War’s ‘I Am Elite’ a superfast black metal super-group he was part of in the late ’90s, the latter as a tribute to his friend David ‘Blackmoon’ Parland (ex-Dark Funeral and ex-Necrophobic) who was part of the gang. Pumped by the arrival of former Degial’s Joel Lindholm on lead guitar, they’ve just played three gigs, including one at the Metal Magic festival in Copenhagen and are said to be working on their next full-length, hopefully to be recorded in 2017.

About Terrorizer Magazine

It’s always a pleasure to feature Darkthrone on the cover of Terrorizer. They are a truly reliable band that not only continue to deliver utterly awesome songs, but fly the flag for the metal underground. New album ‘Artic Thunder’ doesn’t disappoint and we hope you’ll enjoy our cover feature as much as I enjoyed reading it when it landed in my inbox. September is always a time when the music industry recovers from the summer festivals and starts to look forward to closure on the year, and believe it or not, start to think about 2017 and next year’s releases. On the horizon there’s new albums from a newly reformed The Obsessed and Obituary just to whet your appetite already. Next year marks the 30th anniversary of Celtic Frost’s ‘Into The Pandemonium’, so I hope to see some kind of reissue. Noise/Tom G – if you’re reading! In the meantime, the rest of the year will see an awesome line-up at this year’s Damnation Festival in Leeds and a fuck load more releases to look forward to – including amazing albums by Venom Prison, 40 Watt Sun, Lucifer’s Chalice and The Dillinger Escape Plan, to name just a few. I’ve also just finished reading former Cro-Mags bassist Harley Flanagan’s biography which is utterly fantastic. It’s out at the end of this month, we’ll be bringing you an interview next issue...
