The heavy-hearted crush of Aeons In Tectonic Interment, the long-anticipated new full-length from Finnish funeral doom cult, TYRANNY, will be making its final descent upon forlorn ears this Friday via Dark Descent Records.
The duo’s first proper recording in a decade and third overall spews forth five diseased hymns of slow, tortured, suffocating grimness. Reaping critical accolades from media outlets globally, Noisey issues of the opus, “Aeons In Tectonic Interment is an imperious, ambitious listen; the ‘death’ aspect of their corroded death/doom takes the reins, allowing the doomier tempo and atmosphere to decay around it,” furthering, “Its graceless, lumbering pace is almost unbearably slow, adding to the tension that hangs between the ringing notes and the pregnant pauses before each drawn-out roars erupts.” Metal Storm commends the duo’s crippling blend of “sheer heaviness with great atmosphere,” Decibel notes, “TYRANNY have chosen to play all their music in the key of crushing,” while Glacially Musical concurs, “The ringing, sludgy chords, the forlorn vocals, the wisps of melody, it all adds up to an immersing experience. TYRANNY has made a depressing, metal, vicious Pink Floyd album from their pre-Darkside Of The Moon Era. Settle in, this ride will be long and bumpy, but worth it.” Elsewhere the sentiment repeats. Abysmal Hymns calls Aeons In Tectonic Interment simply, “heavy as fuck,” warning, “This album goes to the extreme to grind you down with its weight.” Metal Injection likens the band to the “crawl of a spider web-laden crypt,” We Love Metal proclaims, “It doesn’t get any darker than TYRANNY… The droning and depression ensuring tracks off… Aeons In Tectonic Interment cement the darkness…” while Nine Circles notes, “Aeons In Tectonic Interment has the ability to infiltrate dreams. Participants of lucid dreaming will enjoy the demented places that the album will take them. But even those plagued by insomnia will be pleased to soundtrack their sleepless nights and panicked dawns with the somber heaviness of TYRANNY.”
In celebration of its impending release and following teasers from Decibel and Noisey, today Cvlt Nation levies Aeons In Tectonic Interment in all its tortured glory noting of the opus, “Ancient riffs will engulf your humanity and make you realize how fragile our existence really is.”

Forged in 2001 by Matti Mäkelä and Lauri Lindqvist, TYRANNY was conceived under the strain of a Stranger Will to channel the Ageless resonations of Earth and Oceans and sonorous visions and fevered dreams by the means of epic, Funereal Soundscapes. Composed, performed and tracked by Mäkelä and Lindqvist with additional percussion by Jussi-Pekka Manner and mastered by D. Lowndes at Resonance Sound Studio (Absu, Pallbearer, Profetus, Sigh, Wodensthrone etc.), Aeons In Tectonic Interment is a traumatic, fifty-one-minute audio apocalypse where misanthropy, suffering and imminent ruin become one achieving purification through sonic degeneration.
