METAL BLADE RECORDS
Sweden's very own AEON is back with a 15 song new album entitled "AEONS BLACK"
& is the bands follow up to their 2010 release "PATH OF FIRE". Sweden is know for
produce some of the best Metal bands in the scene and AEON are definitely one of them.
These guys formed back in 1999 out of the band DEFACED CREATION and have been
shredding the scene ever since. AEON play a very tight and clean style of old school
blasphemous Death Metal that blends American & European influences together to create
their sound. Along with the brutality they deliver on technical Death Metal as well. These
guys are unrelenting with fierce chugging, blasting drums and thick low ended demonic
styled vocals. I liked the fact that the Death Metal growls are understandable and reminded
me of a heavier version of AMON AMARTH. This album is a little more varied then some
past release, with grooved out parts & straight on double bass drumming blast beats. There
are some all out shredding guitar work that sounded a little like ARCH ENEMY mixed
with IN FLAMES & JOB FOR A COWBOY. Now that's a massive comparison! If you
like the technicality of new school bands like JOB FOR A COWBOY, THE FACELESS
& BORN OF OSIRIS with the old school brutality of SIX FEET UNDER,
IMMOLATION & INCANTATION mixed with the slick unique styles of ARCH
ENEMY, IN FLAMES & AMON AMARTH, then your gonna love AEON. I have a few
of their past releases and have to say the "AEONS BLACK" blows those albums away big
time! What an amazing release! Get it and blast it loud!
