As appetizer: check out the reviews (professionally and grimly) done for this splendid website in our archives section for Aeon’s former releases.
Since I’m an adept for a long time (my reviews on albums like Rise To Dominate or Path Of Fire will prove me right), I was really looking forward to listen to this fourth full length through Metal Blade, if it wasn’t only for Ronnie Björnström at the production’s helm (think: Plector, Zombified, Feral, System Annihilated etc.).
Aeons Black surely is not Aeon’s blackest album, but it is some consideration of the glorious past: Swedish-oriented timeless Ultra-Death Metal with a modern sound yet at the same time, a fabulous Old School vibe, nicely balancing in between rhythm and melody, power and tradition.
I do rather prefer Aeon’s latest album(s) (especially Path Of Fire), but fans of melodic and rhythmic yet groovy and powerful (Swedish-oriented) Technical Death Metal – and so on, and so on, and so on…
