The Skinny: Scandinavian progressive unit Cronian, the brainchild of Norwegian metal visionaries Øystein G. Brun (Borknagar) and Vintersorg (Vintersorg, Borknagar), have premiered their new album, Erathems online. Erathems can be streamed just above via Bandcamp and will see a North American release on November 12th via the Season of Mist Underground Activists Division.

In regards to Erathems, Cronian stated: “We have just finished up the album and I don’t even slightly blush when arguing out loud that it is the very pinnacle of my fairly long musical career.” Øystein comments. “Musically and production-wise, it almost feels like a leap up and into another division. Mr. V and I have been working intensely and fully isolated over the last six months with this bastard of an album and we firmly regard this as our most catchy, aggressive, atmospheric and darken flavored effort to date. I am pretty sure this album will blow the socks off of all those who liked our previous releases, as well as fans of Borknagar, Vintersorg and likewise… Cheers!”
