Aquilus, easily one of the masters of everything orchestral and heavy, is back for the first time in a decade with a new album called Bellum I. The band is now streaming the debut single "Into Wooded Hollows", whose nine-ish minute runtime is nothing short of terrifying.
"Bellum I is an atmospheric metal album with a fusion of classical film, folk, and black metal influences, continuing in the tradition of the work started on the first album, Griseus, and evolving to new levels," said Aquilus mastermind Horace Rosenqvist.
Bellum I is out on December 3. Pre-orders are available here.
