France’s VI Featuring AOSOTH, ANTAEUS Members Streaming New Album In Full
September 22, 2015, 4 years ago
French black metal trinity, VI, made of current and ex-members of Aosoth and Antaeus, are streaming their long-awaited debut album in it’s entirety (listen below). The opus is entitled De Praestgiis Angelorum and will see its release on September 25th via Agonia Records.
The lineup of VI is shaped by INVRI (Aosoth, ex-Antaeus) on guitars and vocals, BST (Aosoth, ex-Antaeus, ex-Aborted) on bass and Blastum (ex-Aosoth, ex-Antaeus, Merrimack) on drums. Their forthcoming full-length material bestirs within the characteristic black metal niche developed by the said bands, with the addition of expanded guitar work, choirs and subtle sample parts. VI describes their music as "extreme, devoted black metal with illuminated chaos".
The band have completed the entire recording process of their debut album in BST Studio (Antaeus, Hell Militia, Aosoth, Vorkreist) after five long years of comprehensive work. The cover artwork has been created by Alexander L. Brown (Leviathan, Stargazer, Bölzer, Darkthrone).
De Praestgiis Angelorum will be available in:
- 6 panel digipack CD
- regular coloured vinyl
- limited to 100 handnumbered copies black vinyl

VI was formed in Paris (France) in 2007 as a main project of Aosoth's bass player INRVI (who took on guitar and vocal duites in VI). With the help of his long time comrade BST (also involved in Aosoth and The Order Of Appolyon), they released a four-track EP called De Praestigiis Daemonum under Debemur Mortii banner. Shortly after, VI found its drummer, Blastum, who worked and still works with bands such as: Antaeus, Merrimack, Aosoth and Ritualization. Together they recorded a split EP with Aosoth, Angels Falling Down, in 2010. More news on their debut album De Praestgiis Angelorum will follow soon.
