"VISIONS OF BURNING AEONS"
Hailing from Greece and forming back in 2005 comes the Doom Metal outfit known as
AEON APHELION. These guys have set out to add a new spark to the endless pyre to
the Doom Metal genre. After one listen to their latest release "VISIONS OF A BURNING
AEONS", you can see that have achieved just that. They have a strong Doom Metal
foundation, but add a little more to their sound, by putting touches of Southern Rock &
some Stoner Metal type influences. There is even a little Death 'N' Roll sound from time
to time that reminded me a bit of bands like DEBAUCHERY & ENTOMBED out of
Sweden. If you add in a little bit of swagger from CLUTCH & a bit of a technical touch of
MASTODON then you might get some what of an idea of how killer these guys are. The
vocals are done in a mid ranged clean Doom / Stoner Metal style. I can also hear some
Classic '70's style of Metal that brought to mind ORANGE GOBLIN & TROUBLE a lot.
There is some psychedelic passages through out their sound mixed with some intricate and
heavily involved structures. I am pretty picky when it comes to my Doom Metal tastes,
but I do know one thing for sure, that I really love what AEON APHELION has created
and can't wait to hear a lot more from this amazing band. If your a Doom / Stoner Metal
fan then you definitely want to par take in what these guys are delivering.
