- Aégis is the third studio album by the Norwegian gothic metal band Theatre of Tragedy, and the last album of their musical period defined by gothic stylings and Early Modern English lyrics.
- As with Theatre of Tragedy's previous albums, the lyrics are written in Early Modern English (except "Venus", in Latin) which sounds very different from modern English: Vaunt! - Devil tyne - Wadst thou wane fore'ermae? (from the song "Angélique").
- "Cassandra" was the only single taken from the album and was released in April 1998. It was released in a shorter version called "Cheap Wine Edit" and backed with "Aœde (Edit)".
