Aeon Streaming New Album "God Ends Here"

On Friday, October 15, Aeon will release their new album, "God Ends Here," via Metal Blade Records. An advanced album stream can be found below.

With 2012's Aeons Black standing as one of the defining death metal albums of the twenty-first century, it has been a long wait for the follow up. In 2021, Sweden's Aeon finally return with its successor, "God Ends Here," and in doing so only up the ante with a record that is bigger, harder and stronger in every way. A darker, even more epic collection, it is everything an Aeon fan could want with a few surprises in store, pushing the genre in new directions, and once again asserting that they are one of the most important bands in extreme metal.

The main reason for the gap between records lies in finding the right drummer, having had a few pass through their ranks in the interim, Dark Funeral/Imperium drummer Janne Jaloma now manning the kit. Making his recording debut with the band is also bassist Tony Östman, who joined in 2013, during the touring cycle for Aeons Black. Guitarist Daniel Dlimi, who departed the Aeon fold in 2013, also returned to the band's ranks in 2019, which inspired guitarist Zeb Nilsson to write, having really missed collaborating with him.

Drums were recorded in Jaloma's own Studio Starköl, guitars and bass in the band's own Rise to Dominate Studio, and the vocals were recorded at Metallfabriken Studio, where some guitar re-amping was also done. Producer Ronnie Björnström, who presided over Aeons Black, once again oversaw proceedings, making sure everything sounded as big as possible. Expanding the sonic palette are strings and choirs, the orchestral elements primarily programmed by Nilsson with Dlimi handling those on "Mephistopheles", while Nilsson wrote the choir parts. With dramatic artwork by Italian artist Paolo Girardi the final piece of the puzzle, the finished package extends Aeon's legacy and gives the genre the push that was intended from the outset. They may have been gone a long time but make no mistake: Aeon are back, and God Ends Here will lay waste to all. More...

Brutal Fest 2014 Cancelled

It appears the Brutal Fest has been cancelled, with several bands posting messages online stating the event is cancelled and they weren't ever paid. A sampling of posts can be seen below.

Dawn of Demise: "Brutal Fest has been cancelled. The promoter is a lying bastard cuntfuck idiot loser who has stolen peoples money and so on. Aborted and Aeon have also cancelled, and if you look at their updates you can see that they also are pretty pissed..."

Aborted: "Due to the unprofessional and fraudulent acts of the promoter of brutal fest. Aborted officially cancel our appearance at this event. We hope the promoter gets what he deserves and everyone who bought tickets get their money back. See you all in Aarschot with Exhumed and Origin this November instead!"

Aeon: "Due to an unprofessional and fraudulent act of the promotor AeoN is canceling the show at Brutal Fest in Hasselt. We really hope that everyone who has bought a ticket will get the money back. See you all on the Cannibal Corpse tour."

The festival's official Facebook profile was recently updated with the following message:

"Dear [eople, as you have heard recently Brutal Fest 2014 will be cancelled.

"I can't continue any longer with this event due medical reasons and that's probably the main reason for the cancellation.

"There are a lot of speculations / gossip / lies said the last days in the social media but also in the newspapers. It doesn't mean that something is written in a newspaper that it is automatically true.

"Tickets: We received some messages about tickets that where never arrived. People who bought a ticket normally received a mail with more information about a cash back.

"We (I am) (are) sincerely sorry for the mistakes that were made. People with questions can send a mail to:brutalfestzonhoven@hotmail.be." More...

Aeon Comments On Loss Of Guitarist

Aeon recently split with the band's guitarist due to issues with losing money on tour. Aeon has now checked in with the following update about the band's status:

"Since some people are asking us if we will continue as a band or not after Daniel's departure, let's make it clear that we will continue to spread our dark music.

"We always knew that this point in our career would come. When we would be asked to tour more and more, but the touring does not cover the loss of income from our day jobs... and it is a very difficult point. With this band we do get paid, we just have to cut on our losses. But the rest of us still wanna give it a try!

"We still have faith that there is a need for some true death metal in this world! THE FIRE STILL BURNS!

"We will also be looking for a replacement for Daniel of course. More info on this will come soon. And we just got started working on our next album....how about that folks???"

Aeon Splits With Guitarist

Guitarist and co-songwriter Daniel Dlimi has decided to leave Aeon after 12 years within the band. Daneil issued the following statement:

“It’s with a heavy heart that I finally have decided to call it quits. Why?!? I simply cant afford doing this no more. To tour with a band in our size, you actually loose money on each and every tour. For us, the expenses is always higher then the income, and if that wasn’t enough, I also need to take time of from my daytime job which means absolutely no income at all during the period of a tour plus the extra expenses I get from the tour that does not get covered by the tour-income. You see where this is going?

"We have done four tours this year alone and each one of them have made us lose money. I have actually NEVER done a single tour and made a single dime in the end of the day. I am actually paying money to do shows for you guys. And the saddest thing about this is that the industry expects you to do so. Something must be seriously fucked up when for example the driver, the sound guy, the merch guy, the tour manager etc. makes more money on a tour compared to bands on the bill that is not headlining?!?

"The one thing I love doing the most with my band is actually being on stage performing for you guys. But my passion for the music simply won’t pay my bills. And as we all know, the record industry is suffering as hell and the record sales are lower then ever. So the only way to grow your band bigger is to do new albums and tour like hell… If you are lucky enough, one day you will be at a level where you actually get paid for you job, And like I said, i can’t afford doing all the tours required to maybe one day be a big enough name to do headline tours and actually make money out of it.

Ash Avildsen, founder of Summer Slaughter, comments on this year's edition of the tour: “It's year seven and I think 2013's line-up is the most exciting and diverse yet.

Let the underground unite!"

Greg Puciato (Dillinger Escape Plan vocalist) states: “We can't wait to get back on the road! We're launching a US tour in the spring, hitting Europe for some festivals and club shows, and then hitting several more cities with Summer Slaughter all summer long. We are absolutely amped. After being holed up in the studio for such a long time giving birth to One of Us is the Killer, we are all pent up and ready to share material new and old with our supporters doing what we love to do the most. Can't wait to see and either kiss or rip off each and every one of your faces on the road with Summer Slaughter and year round, everywhere.”
