Official press release:

Floored by this year’s phenomenal debut album So Fallen Alle TempelDebemur Morti Productions is pleased to announce their collaboration with Swiss atmospheric black metal project Aara – a young band already reaching expert heights of hauntingly melodic magnificence.

Issues the band:

“We are more than pleased to be part of Debemur Morti, a label that doesn’t just release quality music, but has created a place where emotions, sound, and aesthetics come together to create something big, something above all.”

In celebration of their partnership, the label has unveiled a brand new digital one-track EP – Anthropozän – serving as a perfect introduction to the breadth of the band’s sound, divided into a number of movements that combine sublimated introspection, awestruck reverberant melodicism, and widescreen, neo-classical grandeur.

Stream/purchase Anthropozän via the group’s Bandcamp below:

Concerned with the Anthropocene epoch — dating from the start of significant human impact on Earth’s geology and ecosystem — Anthropozän ruminates on the self-destruction of humankind through its preoccupation with short-term comfort and pleasure-seeking. 

Aara was founded in 2018 by Fluss (vocals, lyrics) and Berg (all instruments) to create an art highly influenced by characteristic black metal elements, but with an epic, classical atmosphere which aims to take the listener through the darkest alleys of human existence, philosophy, psychology, and historical expressions of the sciences, art, and culture.
