Logo on EP "Rise Of Avernus"


Hailing from Sydney, Australia, Rise Of Avernus are quickly becoming a well known entity throughout the Australian metal scene.

Within the short time frame since the release of their debut EP in 2012, Rise Of Avernus have relentlessly toured around the country sharing the stage with bands such as Apocalyptica, Mnemic, Hypno5e and recently supported Enslaved on their first ever national tour of Australia. In 2014 Rise Of Avernus will be performing with Rotting Christ, Septicflesh and Fleshgod Apocalypse during their respective Australian tours.

Performing a unique style of music stemming for many different genres, the band can best be described as "orchestral, progressive doom metal "

Whilst this styling is very evident through their 2013 debut album L'Appel Du Vide, there is an exploration throughout a vast range of moods and expressions that truly sets Rise Of Avernus apart from others.

Transcending the tradition realms of Progressive metal, L'Appel Du Vide delves into a rich tapestry of dark orchestral soundscapes whilst exploring dark and poignant themes through their lyrics. The extremity of beauty refracts against a dark aural environment with elements of symphonic doom and death metal. L'Appel Du Vide is the album that will set the band into international recognition as Rise Of Avernus prepare to support Rotting Christ, Septicflesh and Fleshgod Apocalypse this year before continuing their induction throughout the rest of the world.
