Though the members of In Aphelion are collectively in a variety of successful bands, with both past and present members involved from groups such as Necrophobic, Nifelheim, Black Trip/VOJD and more, they've have never been content to rest on the laurels of a single well-liked band: they have a long history of new projects and collaborations in a variety of styles. Their newest endeavor is a powerful short-length titled Luciferian Age that serves as an early introduction to the group ahead of an upcoming debut album titled Moribund.

Backed by a songwriting history that goes all the way back to early demos at the start of the ‘90s, Luciferian Age is bold and well-conceptualized despite the age of the new band itself. Though the material itself is founded on the concepts of classic Swedish-styled black metal that’s been done before, the execution is near-flawless; mesmerizing repetition, catchy vocals, beautiful lead guitar, and big riffs carry the torch through the short playtime of the EP. Two of the three originals from Luciferian Age, including the title track whose video we're premiering below, are also going to be on Moribund and given how strong they are here I have nothing but the highest expectations for it.

Read the band’s statement on “Luciferian Age” below.

"Luciferian Age" was written in the 11th hour to complement the album. We needed a straight forward, no frills song. The idea was to build the whole song around a killer riff that could carry the message from the start to the end. We were so pleased with this oddball although it sticks out from the album that we decided to release it both as video and title track for the EP.
