Aeons: Plays technical progressive stuff and remarkable debut album….

Aeons – Consequences

Isle Of Man is known for their fascinating cats with no tale, but it`s obvious that there are fascinating bands from that Island! Aeons for instance is a very good and skilled band from Man. The track Rubicon,

The band states, «We’re a metal band from the Isle Of Man and we play technical progressive stuff… I think that about covers it… But if you really want to know more then visit our lovely website : and see our glorious faces and watch moving pictures of us doing band-type things».

In 2019 the Isle Of Man’s Aeons announced themselves to the world with their remarkable debut album, A Tragic End. There was no fanfare, no sense of expectation…as if from nowhere they appeared and delivered one of the finest progressive metal albums of that year. Such auspicious beginnings of course mean that things have changed for Aeons and now, as they prepare to launch their second album, there is a definite buzz of anticipation in the air. Have they managed to match that first album? Could they have surpassed it? It’s time to face the Consequences…

Consequences makes a mockery of those questions. The ease with which Aeons have surged past their previous musical output is quite breathtaking. The seven songs which form Consequences are individually stunning and collectively magnificent, traversing an array of emotions and perceptions, blending punishing heaviness and deft subtlety with a mastery almost alchemical in nature. The listener is carried over endless vistas of sound, slammed into darkness and delivered into light as the songs transform. Tracks like ‘Thoughts Of A Dying Astronaut’ and ‘Rubicon’ deliver on a visceral level with cascading riffs and searing guitar work, but also on an ethereal level as they lift the spirits and engage the mind. Aeons’ creativity is aflame!

Consequences will be available from 10th September on all major digital platforms and exclusively on Bandcamp on CD, complete with beautiful artwork and an extensively illustrated booklet. True progressive music should defy limitations, ignite the imagination and excite the senses and Aeons do all that and more, while still employing the kind of power and force to satisfy any fan of metal’s myriad sub-genres. Not all bands are created equal and some albums simply cannot be missed.

About Ulf Backstrøm (7410 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
