Norwegian progressive metal band Cronian, the offspring of Øystein G. Brun from Borknagar and Andreas “Mr. V” Hedlund (aka Vintersorg), are streaming their new album Erathems at iTunes and Terrorizer.
Brun commented on the new album as follows:
Musically, Cronian is the counterpart of Borknagar. Borknagar revolves around traditional riffs and organic arrangements, while Cronian starts out on huge visionary soundscapes, which we peel down to a cold, sharp and hard hitting expression. BORKNAGAR resembles a philosopher silently pondering about man and nature. Cronian is the activist with an attitude portraying the destructive rage of modern civilisation.
The album is slated for release on November 8 through Season of Mist Records.
