Aeon Zen Posts Top 5 Riffs Video

Aeon Zen is back with the band's latest opus entitled "Enigma," due for release on January 22nd, 2013 on Nightmare Records. The album is available for pre-order here.

Today Aeon Zen has released a video of the top 5 guitar riffs from "Enigma." The video has been premiered through GuitarWorld.com and can be seen right here or in the player below.

Front man Rich Hinks describes the video: "What better way to show everyone some pieces of our new album than for me to perform them for you? There are so many riffs on this album that I personally consider my favourite, so it was really difficult to just choose 5 (well... 10 if you put the instruments together!). These should give you a flavour of Aeon Zen and Enigma and hopefully inspire you listen to the whole album to hear these riffs in context." More...

"Divinity shows a whole new side to Aeon Zen. There's still all the elements that make it an Aeon Zen song, but there's a ton more energy and heaviness, and even more technicality than we've ever put on a record before. Our goal for this track was to make a song that grabs you by the balls and doesn't let up until the final blow." More...

Aeon Zen Pushes Back Album Release

Aeon Zen had previously announced new album "Enigma" would be coming on September 10th, 2012, but the band has now issued the following update about pushing back the release due to a new record deal:

"Over the last several weeks we have been working on a deal that will see our new album 'Enigma' released through a different record label. There will be a proper press release about this soon, we just didn't want to leave you hanging!

"This is a great step for us and we're delighted that the album will be released this way. It does however mean that there will be a change of the release date, and we are now looking at an early 2013 release. The exact date is still to be confirmed.

"For those of you that have already pre-ordered the CD version of the album, we can ship these out to you for the new release date. For those that have pre-ordered the bundle version of the album we will throw in a free poster signed by all of the first Aeon Zen line-up and will ship out everything except the CD now and you will receive the CD when it is released.

"If you have any questions about your pre-order then please email contact@aeonzen.com and we'll be happy to help."
