Next month, Swiss Black Metal band Switzerland Aara are scheduled to launch their latest full-length album, which is titled "Triade II: Hemera". The new work will be released on the 13th of May through French label Debemur Morti Productions, who also handled the band's previous two albums. While we wait, the fifth track from the album, "Strepitus Mundi", has been made available for listening, check it out:


The album's fourth track, "Das Dunkel der Welt", was made available for listening last month:


"Triade II: Hemera" will be the second part of the planned "Triade" trilogy of albums, and will mark the band's fourth full-length overall. The label commented on the style and themes behind the new album:

Based upon the 1820 Gothic novel 'Melmoth the Wanderer' by Charles Robert Maturin - and closely connected in style and atmosphere to 2021's initial instalment "Triade I: Eos" - each of the 6 brutally melodic tracks follows the book's chronological mid-point narrative in a dazzling critical examination of theism and scepticism through the medium of top-tier Black Metal.

Although conceptually aligned with part one of the trilogy, "Triade II: Hemera" further-advances the AARA sound into realms of progressive extremity: defined once again by the beauteous lead melodies of composer/guitarist Berg, the record combines a raw violent undertow with subtle rhythmic shifts, left-field riffs/refrains and sublimated vocal savagery - interweaving Christian choirs, the Jewish shofar horn and traditional Indian vocal samples into yet another outstanding offering from an unstoppable young band overflowing with ideas and confidence.

The complete tracklist is as follows:

  1. Phantasmagorie
  2. Adonaia's Elegien
  3. Sonne der Nacht
  4. Das Dunkel der Welt
  5. Strepitus Mundi
  6. Mitgift

The artwork is by Swiss artist Michael Handt, who also provided the art for the band's 2020 release, "En Ergô Einai":
