The genesis of the Bleak Entity TENEBRAE IN PERPETUUM dates back to September 2001 when Atratus and The Darkest Abyss joined forces to create dark, cold and hateful Black Metal. In October 2001, the hymns for the self-produced demo “The Black Flame’s Age” were recorded on a four-track recorder and released in a limited edition of 200 tapes. Widely appreciated for its strong obscure aura, the demo received excellent feedback from the underground and culminated, in winter 2001, in an offer from Italian label Serpens Caput Productions to release a 7″ EP. In July 2002, the eponymous 7″ EP was released in a limited edition of 500 hand-numbered copies, offering three new anthems dedicated to Eternal Darkness, as well as one from their demo tape. In 2002/2003, new material was written for the first full-length album. The Darkest Abyss decided to leave and was replaced by Vidharr in the summer of 2003. The new duo started to rehearse and record the new songs. The first full-lengther, “Onori Funebri Rituali”, appeared during autumn 2003, again through Italian label Serpens Caput Productions, in a limited edition of 500 copies. This generated an amazing response worldwide, as TENEBRAE IN PERPETUUM tapped into that cold, dark atmosphere associated with the early ’90s. After receiving many offers from several labels, the band finally decided in summer 2004 to re-release their first epos on CD through Spanish label BlackSeed Productions. The first 1000 copies were quickly sold out and were soon followed by a re-press of 500 more. In August 2004, Shatraug, leader of the well-known horde HORNA offered TENEBRAE IN PERPETUUM to do a split release with his band. In June 2005, the split 7″ EP between TENEBRAE IN PERPETUUM and HORNA was released through the French label Debemur Morti Productions. 1000 copies were sold out within a month… In Summer 2005, after several weeks of deep discussion, TENEBRAE IN PERPETUUM and Debemur Morti Productions inked a deal to release the second full-length album on CD/LP as well as the reissue of their long sold out demo tape on 7″ vinyl record. An official “Onori Funebri Rituali” t-shirt was also unleashed. Two years after the release of their first opus, and after several months of writing and rehearsing, the band began recording hymns for their second album, entitled “Antico Misticismo”. In January 2006, the reissue of “The Black Flame’s Age” demo tape came out in a limited edition of 300 copies, followed in February by the ltd. digipack CD and jewel case CD versions of the new epos. “Antico Misticismo” (Ancient Mysticism) comprised seven hymns of pure, cold and hateful Black Metal with an atmosphere few bands manage to put into their anthems. The bleak production, desperate and odious screams, and intense and sorrowful melodies accompanied by fast drums (alternating sometimes with slower passages) combines into a glorification of Darkness. Taking the mysterious and gloomy atmosphere from “Onori Funebri Rituali” into a deeper dimension, “Antico Misticismo” presents a higher level of composition and structure, in which one can touch the repulsive feelings ingeniously orchestrated by their creator. Since the “Antico Misticismo” album, TENEBRAE IN PERPETUUM have released a four-way split 7″ (self produced) with CHELMNO, NEAR and LORN called “From the Ancient Dolomitic Forest” to celebrate their ‘ancient dolomitic forests’ scene. In 2008, they recorded three new songs for the upcoming split CD/LP with KROHM, which will appear on Debemur Morti Productions this coming winter. Early 2009, Ildanach joined the band as vocalist, immediately adding a new dimension to the esoteric Black Art. During the period 2006-2008, Atratus had composed songs for the imminent third full-length album. On “L’Eterno Maligno Silenzio“, the high priests of sombre psalms merge the darkest shades from the colour spectrum into a frenetic fusion teeming with mystical magnificence and dissonant grandeur.
