ETERNAL MAJESTY - Returns After 15 Years Of Silence With A New Single

After almost 15 years of absence, Eternal Majesty breaks the silence with "Aux Portes du Temple Noir", a first track which will immerse you in the darkest and most depressive album from the band. The track is taken from the highly anticipated new album, Black Metal Excommunication, which will be released at the end of November via Those Opposed Records (CD digipack) and Mallevs Records (cassette).

Formed in 1995, Eternal Majesty is part of the first wave of French black metal bands that marked the arrival of the 21st century. Dark, brutal, personal, inspired and full of melodies, the band brought a higher level of violence, darkness and hatred to black metal that made the genre even more dangerous than before. After twenty-five years at the service of the purest evil, without the slightest commercial compromise, the band announces its musical return 14 years after Wounds Of Hatred And Slavery.

The band comments: "Eternal Majesty has always been spontaneous. We play when we feel like playing. We've never really managed to make songs under duress. We're not good businessmen, it's a real torment to look for a label, to do promotion, to sell albums... it's not our thing at all. Maybe that's why we've always been a bit behind other bands of the same period."

After 20 years punctuated by only two albums that will forever mark the history of French black metal, the band decided to take a break. "We took a break because we had nothing more to say at that time. Why pretend? To sell records without envy and without soul?"

So it took more than 12 years for the urge to return. Composed and recorded in two years, "Black Metal Excommunication is a title that says a lot about our status in the current black metal scene. The desire to make songs comes back, but on our scale, (even) more in retreat. We haven't changed, we still hate promotion and we don't feel like canvassing or being sandwich men on stage. We'll make it available to anyone who wants to listen to it."
