In the capital of a cold rock in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, five guys met up in 2011 and with a profound misunderstanding for music that's in today and an establishment-hating frontman, Aeterna was born.

Aeterna is a (insert your genre)-metal band from Reykjavík, Iceland. Formed in late 2011 by singer Örvar Ingi, guitarists Elvar Bragason and Magni Freyr, bassist Samúel Örn and the sweatiest man in all of rock music's long history, drummer Hjalti Þór.

The group was a mixed bag regarding musical tastes, so the outcome was psychedelic rock, progressive rock, death metal, black metal, sludge, melodic death and a metric-shit ton of other genres put into a blender on high. They have never liked labeling themselves as anything particular, but the label most people seem to put on them is "progressive death metal".

Their album, named "Eschaton", revolves heavily, as the name suggests, around the speculations on the end stages of various things.

Örvar always had a philosophical interest in entropy and the mythological end of the world, so Eschaton, by accident or by a subconscious master plan, turned out to be a lyrical concept album, focusing on the concept of what perplexes so many of us: "The End".
