Acherontas - Amenti - New Album to be released at Summer Solstice 2013
We are pleased to proclaim that one of Greeks leading Black Metal Bands joined the ranks of the World Terror Committee. Acherontas currently began the recordings for the follow up of their latest full length album “Vamachara”,which was unleashed upon the masses in 2011 via Agonia Records.
Like previously announced via the Band’s Facebook page (Acherontas @ facebook), the approximately one hour longing album will feature guest appearances / collaborations with following artists: Naas Alcameth /Nightbringer, Henry Möller from Arditi & Puissance, Jhon Longshaw (Black Seas of Infinity) and Edgar Kerval from Emme Ya. Having nothing but faith in Acherontas we expect “Amenti” to become a sinister masterpiece. The release of “Amenti” as CD,DLP & Tape is scheduled for Summer Solstice 2013.
See here the previously announced statement by the Band:

They have never left us.” Ezra Pound
The Tombs reverberate with echoes of a bygone Golden Age. The Temples of the True Gods, once a place of Worship, Power and Rebirth, now lay in ruins destroyed by savages, be they invading barbarians, followers of false idols or priests of modern superstitions called “Science” and “Skepticism”. It doesn’t matter if the footprints of the Gods are burned in an orgy of fire, dedicatedly erased from memory by “scholars” or shoved in a dusty shelf of a museum- the slaves of the iron age are certain that the Old Gods were buried under millennia of dirt, ground and stone. But during the Night the Old Gods still rule supreme and creeping into the dreams, as lamiae, vampires, manticores and other manifestations, remind the humankind of Their Presence.The collapse of modern political and financial systems, the growing social unrest, the dead end of the new religions combined with old prophesies and the progress of technology and quantum physics have created a vacuum in the heart and mind of humanity. With the majority of his crutches taken away, modern man is limp, lost and hopeless.The tension is now tangible, as the masses are waiting breathlessly for the next move on the chessboard of existence.
The time is now! The Old Gods, risen from the underworld of Amenti, are here.
May The winter Solstice Bless your Path..
...World Without End..
On behalf of the Band..
