Vitam Aeternam - The Self-Aware Frequency hits the streets today!

It is available on all major streaming services. In addition, you can buy limited physical editions here and digital downloads here.

Overall I would definitely recommend this album to anyone. It’s something so different and encapturing, like watching a movie in the form of music. When it ended I just wanted more, I didn’t want to leave the world I had been surrounded with. I believe this is an album I could go back and listen to time and time again, and each time find something new and exciting within, whether that be discovering a new piece of the story or the intricate music. I have completely fallen in love with this project.

 `The Self Aware Frequency’ is a must-have for Devil Doll fans and I also challenge fans of experimental, progressive, and theatrical rock and metal to dive into this.

The promise of Eternal Life has been the crucial subject in which numerous religions and spiritual beliefs have based their foundations on. For the idea of non-existence is as troubling and inconceivable for humans as infinite itself, on the other hand, the thought of interminably experiencing more from a reality we are so accustomed to brings comfort to more than one soul. Innocence is bliss, and being forever shields us from turning our eyes to the dreadful horror of the unknown, the black pit of nothingness, the void. But it's within its contemplation that lies the secret knowledge.

"The Self-Aware Frequency", explores the mind of a cognizant being trapped within the cosmically interwoven pattern that embeds reality. The character's universe is the music itself, through which it navigates, as a sum of temporal frequencies who slowly gain consciousness, evolving across the songs, until the ultimate realization of its own undeniable truth.

The album combines elements of electronic, industrial, classical, film score, heavy metal, progressive rock, and even pop to create something unique, challenging, and engaging. Fans of forward-thinking artists such as Devil Doll, Mike Patton, Leprous, Ulver, Manes, Pain of Salvation, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Devin Townsend, Vulture Industries, and Arcturus should rejoice in the musical world illuminated throughout the album.

International guest appearances are performed by Bor Zuljan (Devil Doll), Øyvind "Mustis" Mustaparta (ex-Dimmu Borgir), Juan Manuel Flores (Cuarteto Cromano), Goran Setitus (Omnia Moritur, ex-Setherial), Alasdair Dunn (Ashenspire), Przemyslaw Kajnat (Eternal Deformity, Allone), and Lotti Wood (Woodwindz).

Vitam Aeternam

 

Vitam Aeternam is an experimental musical project formed by entities known as Jake Rosenberg (Desperate Machines, In Progress), Râhoola (A Flying Fish, ex-Inferzenal), and André Aaslie (Funeral, Profane Burial, Images At Twilight, Abyssic, Gromth, Woodwindz, and Omnia Moritur). It's through chance and shared musical values that such entities were able to create an original album full of complex, emotional, dramatic, haunting, melodic, intense, and cinematic music. An honest work from the subconscious depths, and a prodigious offspring of our interconnected digital zeitgeist.

Crime Records proudly present a new signing

Please welcome aboard Vitam Aeternam and their debut album The Self-Aware Frequency.

This album is special. It caught our attention immediately, and we are sure it will grab yours too. Dumping down unexpectedly in our mailbox, we instantly felt we had something unique in our hands. In a mostly generic music world, which somehow has become a bit dull, we finally discovered a band that pushes borders and develops music into soundscapes not common for human ears. No one does what they do! Even though you can hear and feel a clear and honest influence from the extraordinary cult act DEVIL DOLL (hey, its by purpose, and done with the most significant respect after all), they still sound fresh and original with a certain and special integrity.

Based on feedback from music lovers and press so far, people tend to agree with us. It's not a bold statement, but here we have an album that will be talked about in the years to come.

The release is set for this fall. We will come back with more details about the physical releases, but we can say this: They will be awesome!

While waiting for further details, you can see and hear the first video teaser here.
