New Release:

Acerus Unleashes a Molten Metal Storm with "The Caliginous Serenade" - Corchado's Metal Magic Strikes Again!


Get ready to have your eardrums melted and your soul ignited because Acerus, the heavy metal juggernaut hailing from the heart of the USA, is back with their fourth studio album, "The Caliginous Serenade." If your idea of a musical serenade involves roaring guitars, thunderous drums, and vocals that can summon the metal gods themselves, then you're in for a treat!
This masterpiece, brought to life by the metal maestro Daniel Corchado (known for The Chasm and ex-Incantation), has been four years in the making. With over 30 years of metal wizardry under his belt, Corchado's musical concoctions have reached a fever pitch with Acerus. "The Caliginous Serenade" is not just an album; it's a sonic journey through the intricate mind of a metal veteran.
The trademark Acerus sound, a dense and layered approach, is at its absolute zenith on this album. Picture soaring melodies, masterful layering, mesmerizing polyphonic writing, and heavy metal that hits you like a mythical hammer. It's a symphony of metal brilliance that showcases Corchado's decades-long love affair with the genre.
But Acerus isn't a one-man army; it's a metal brotherhood. Esteban Julian Pena's powerful vocals, Mario Hernandez's drumming that could awaken the dead, and Edward Eschamilla's lead guitar assault all contribute to the molten concoction that is "The Caliginous Serenade." Acerus is not just at their best; they're in a league of their own.
Highly recommended for fans of Ironsword, The Chasm, Warlord, and Manilla Road – consider your musical cravings satisfied.
The credits read like a who's who of metal excellence: Pena on vocals, Hernandez on drums, Eschamilla on lead guitar, and the maestro himself, Corchado, handling rhythm/lead guitar, bass, and FX. Mixed and mastered by Corchado, recorded in the Acerus compounds in Chicago, IL in the winter of 2023, and lyrics penned by Hernandez, Pena, and Corchado – this album is a labor of metal love.
