DVNE look to continue the momentum created by their 2017 debut, Asheran, with today's announcement of Etemen Ænka, a wondrous Marald van Haasteren-illustrated effort. Arriving on March 19th via Metal Blade Records, Etemen Ænka sports a dynamic approach to composition, bridging progressive intricacies with the hard-hitting nature of sludge metal. It strays from conventionality and keeps one on their toes, as proved by today's first audio sample, SI-XIV.


Frontman Victor Vicart comments on the record:


"It's an album that has a narrative musically, and we hope that will encourage the listener to explore the universe we've created around it. It is a very dense and layered album which will reward multiple listens, and while this is becoming a recurring aspect of our music, we feel that we went further with it this time. It's also a very polarizing album, emotionally speaking. The heavy sections are, well, very heavy, while the clean sections are much more intricate and delicate - and in a way wouldn't be out of place in a Studio Ghibli anime soundtrack."
