AEON are one of those bands that even Cannibal Corpse dudes will hear and be like ,“Wow, that’s pretty intense, complex and evil”. Get the picture? The band have unfortunately not released jack shit in way too long, but the wait it over! This is a great day!
2021 has proven an insane year for death metal with bands like Obsolete, Cerebral Rot and Bizarre delivering in the realms of avant-garde technical deathy prog thrash, grimy disgusting old school filth death and Lovecraftian punishment, respectively. And then there are plenty of even super techier bands doing a new school thing.
But Aeon are in a class and vibe all their own. Perfectly bridging so many styles while retaining a decidedly older technical enhanced type of feel, “Church Of Horror” is a relentless barrage of evil. You get the feeling after he delivered the twisted sermons on the House Of God album that King Diamond would listen to “Church Of Horror” to climax on the altar with some vile succubus and then cool off using a baptismal font as a makeshift birdbath ball splash/bidet.
So yeah, it’s pretty good, er…evil!
