classic-style doom: In Aevum Agere (Italy): Limbus Animae (Pure Steel Records)

In Aevum Agere (Italy): Limbus Animae (Pure Steel Records)
This four-song EP is my first encounter with In Aevum Agere, a classic-style doom band that with its music declares an everlasting love for early Candlemass. The band are the inheritors and continuers of the glory of perfect and classic doom, namely “Epicus Doomicus Metallicus” (1986) and “Nightfall” (1987), both masterpieces by Candlemass. In Aevum Agere, of course, does not have the stoner/sludge guitar sound so popular today; just a heavy, clean guitar tone that says it is doom metal. The singing is melodic-melancholic, with a singer that feels the spirit of perfect doom. The drums sound full; definitely a good thing. The band decided to pay tribute to perfect doom by covering the master of all miserable-melancholic songs, namely, “Solitude” by Candlemass. People into traditional and classic-style doom, you now have new a band for a new year. It’s so nice to hear a band play doom the way that the father of classic doom Leif Endling himself insists. Very recommended. www.facebook.com/pages/IN-AEVUM-AGERE/35718522561
