In Aevum Agere



In the seas polluted with all kinds of sludge, drone and stoner hybrids, finding a real pearl of epic doom metal is a treat. IN AEVUM AGERE is one such pearl. They follow in the footsteps of the doom metal forefathers, but the founder/guitarist/vocalist, Bruno Masulli, is also a big fan of Chuck Schuldiner, which you can clearly hear in his guitar parts. On their 2nd album, this Italian trio pays tribute to the most important Italian poet, Dante Alighieri, and his magnum opus "Divine Comedy". Focusing on the Inferno part, they've managed to capture the epicness of this poem really well, creating a perfect soundtrack to this imaginary journey through the circles of hell. There's a good variety in these compositions, and the declamations in Italian add to the atmosphere. A powerful sounding album, with clean and strong vocals, memorable melodies and riffs. Those who love CANDLEMASS, SOLITUDE AETURNUS, SORCERER, MEMENTO MORI, BELOW, FORSAKEN, EVANGELIST, THUNDERSTORM and CRYPT SERMON need to have it in their collections!

IN AEVUM AGERE was created in 2004 in Naples, Italy, by the guitarist and vocalist Bruno Masulli, known from his other bands, ANNIHILATIONMANCER (thrash metal) and POWER BEYOND (power metal). The new project was started so that Bruno could express his passion also for classic doom metal metal, inspired by bands like CANDLEMASS and SOLITUDE AETURNUS. For the next few years, the line-up consisted of only live musicians and studio musicians.

In 2007, the first demo "From the Depth of Soul" was released and received many positive reviews in several European countries, as well as in America, including being chosen as the demo of the month in German "Heavy" and "Rock Hard" magazines. The title song of the demo was chosen to be included on the "Metal Crusade Vol. XVI" compilation CD, published by "Heavy" magazine in 2008.

On January 31st 2009, IN AEVUM AGERE played at the first edition of Hammer of Doom festival in Würzburg, Germany, together with DARK QUARTERER, ISOLE, EREB ALTOR, SEAMOUNT and THE DEVIL'S BLOOD. The same year a new 3-song single "Labyrinth of Emptiness" was released.

2011 saw the release of "MMXI" EP which was a promo CD for the then upcoming full-length.

In September 2012, IN AEVUM AGERE signed with Pure Steel Records who released the album "The Shadow Tower" in December of the same year.

In September 2013, the band was played at Swordbrothers XII festival in Andernach, Germany, together with MORGANA LEFAY, SHADOWKEEP, REBELLION, BLITZKRIEG and other bands.

In 2014, "Limbus Animae" EP was released on vinyl by Pure Steel Records.

2014 was a very good year for IN AEVUM AGERE, who were invited to play at several European festivals. It started in January with PLAY IT DOOM in Brescia, Italy, where they shared the stage with SOLSTICE, DARK QUARTERER, BLACK OATH, EPITAPH, CRIMSON DAWN, MIDRYASI... In March, they went to Athens, Greece, to perform at Up the Hammers with BLAZE, LIEGE LORD, PARAGON, XENTRIX and many others. In October, they played at Malta Doom Metal VI, sharing stage with MANILLA ROAD, FORSAKEN, DESOLATION ANGELS, OFFICIUM TRISTE, OUTRAGE (Ger.) among others. In November, they participated in Doom Over Vienna IX, together with DARK QUARTERER, PROCESSION, CARONTE, REINO ERMITANO...

In 2016, IN AEVUM AGERE self-released new EP "Fugit in Solitudine" (named the best independent release of the month in "Rock Hard" mangazine, Italy) and announced their new permanent drummer Claudio Del Monaco, who joined Bruno and Piersabato Gambino (bass player since 2013).

In September 2017, they had the chance to share the stage with the genre's forefahers, CANDLEMASS at Doom Over Rome festival. Other smaller shows followed, including a gig in ebruary 2018 in Vienna together with the local thrashers WILDHUNT.

Between 2017 and 2018, IN AEVUM AGERE recorded a new single "Gaudens in Domino" as well as their second album entitled "Canto III".

The band had been in contact with Metal on Metal Records for some years, and finally in March 2019 they started the co-operation. "Canto III" is based on Dante's "Divine Comedy", in particular on its Inferno part. And musically, it's a perfect epic doom metal album, but not without a personal touch. It will see the light of day in May 2019.
