RISE OF AVERNUS’ debut, self-titled 3 track EP was officially released on 13th March 2012, Mixed and Mastered by Ryan Huthnance (THE SEER/MORTAL SIN). The EP features three engrossing epic doom metal tracks. Lead track, “Beneath the Frozen Hand of Time”, features vocal contributions from Marc Grewe, front man of the legendary German death metal group, MORGOTH.
This doom metal four piece from Sydney, Australia is the brainchild of guitarist / vocalist Ben Vanvollenhoven (Ex-STODOWA) and vocalist / keyboardist, Catherine Guirguis (KATABASIS, Ex-BLACK HORIZON), the music is based around the incongruent, yet complimentary combination of Guirguis’ classically inspired piano melodies and Vanvollenhoven’s monolithic riffs. Through their duelling vocal personas, Guirguis and Vanvollenhoven explore dark, poignant themes with impassioned arrangements and a unique down tempo theatricality


released May 23, 2012

All music composed and performed by Catherine Guirguis & Ben VanVollenhoven.
