Aeon premier new track exclusively on MetalSucks

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 13th November 2012 by Nico Solheim-Davidson, the North Sea Poet

Today MetalSucks offers up an exclusive premiere of The Glowing Hate, the latest single of iniquity from Swedish death metal unit, Aeon. The track comes off the band’s forthcoming new full-length, Aeons Black, scheduled to drop this week Friday!

Comments guitarist Daniel Dlimi of the tune: “My goal with ‘The Glowing Hate’ was to write a really diverse song containing all sorts of elements and influences. Personally, I think it turned out great and it’s also the song that I am most satisfied with of the ones I wrote for the album. I also think [vocalist] Tommy [Dahlstöm] managed to write really great lyrics and awesome vocal patterns for it, and as usual it’s all about our everlasting hate against religion. The spoken parts at the end were something that Tommy and I came up with over a piss-warm beer in the studio after we were done with the main vocals of the song. It sounded cool so we decided to keep it.”

Get down with The Glowing Hate here.

Already crowned, “one of the best death metal albums of 2012,” by Revolver Magazine and, “a masterpiece of goddamned death metal,” by The Metal Observer, Aeons Black is slated for release on November 16, 2012 through Metal Blade Records. The meticulously executed slab of sacrilegious sickness was recorded at Empire Studio in Östersund, Sweden, engineered, mixed and mastered by Ronnie Björnström at Garageland Studios and features striking cover art by Kristian “Necrolord” Wåhlin (Bathory, At The Gates, Dissection, Emperor, et al).

Today, the second in a series of studio clips from Aeon‘s blazing Aeons Black recording session has been posted to the band’s official landing page, which can be found here. Sneak a peek at drummer Arttu Mallki punishing his kit for what would become the gargantuan Aeons Black full-length.

Already called “one of the best death metal albums of 2012” in a 4/5 review from Revolver Magazine, Aeons Black is set for release in North America on November 20, 2012 through Metal Blade Records. Aeons Black was recorded at Empire Studio in Östersund, Sweden, engineered, mixed and mastered by Ronnie Björnström at Garageland Studios and features striking cover art by Kristian “Necrolord” Wåhlin (Bathory, At The Gates, Dissection, Emperor, et al).

Aeons Black is the follow up to 2010’s Path of Fire, which About.com called “a juicy slab of prime-cut blasphemous death metal,” that, according to Ultimate-Guitar.com, “doesn’t let up in terms of insanely fast tempos, chugging guitars, and demonic vocals,” landing the album an 8 out of 10 score. Aeon is already confirmed for a UK tour which will take place in January 2013 with more dates for Europe and North America in the works. Prepare yourselves…

Aeon prepared to unleash the sonic severity of their fourth full-length

Posted in News with tags , , , , on 24th September 2012 by Nico Solheim-Davidson, the North Sea Poet

Aeon, are pleased to unveil the details of their fourth studio offering , Aeons Black. Set to drop via Metal Blade Records on November 22, 2012, the mammoth 15-track Aeons Black was recorded at Empire Studio in Östersund, Sweden, engineered, mixed and mastered by Ronnie Björnström (Garageland Studios) and features cover art by Kristian “Necrolord” Wåhlin (Bathory, At The Gates, Dissection, Emperor et al).

Notes founding guitarist Zeb Nilsson of their latest offering of irreverence: “This is definitely our most varied albums to date; it has heavier songs yet it also has lots of fast blastbeats and double bass drumming. It’s groovier this time, which I think we lacked on our last album, Path of Fire, which was fast paced almost all the way through. That and the amazing mix by Ronnie Björnström makes me feel pretty confident that this album will appeal to more people than our previous albums. And no, we have not gone softer in any aspect; it’s just easier to catch with all this grooviness. It’s metal right up your ass!”

The first single, title track Aeons Black, premieres today via the band’s official landing page. Comments guitarist Daniel Dlimi of the tune: “‘Aeons Black’ is the first song that I started to work on as we began writing for this album, and it’s also one of the very last to get finished. My goal was to create a somewhat heavier, odder, not-so-typical Aeon song. Once happy with the musical arrangement, I handed it over to [vocalist] Tommy [Dahlstöm] to let him write some lyrics and vocal patterns for it. He managed to get it even darker and more eerie. The lyrics are all about how everything living eventually must face the inevitable, which is death. There will be no savior, no heaven nor hell… just a pitch black, silent empty void.
