Aeon - Rise To Dominate (CD)

Rise To Dominate
by Yiannis Dafopoulos at 13 November 2007, 10:32 AM

Here is an album from a band I didn't know. Basically I knew a Swedish band by the name AEON, but that band featured Spice in its line up and was a Stoner/Groove Metal band, not a Death Metal one! Anyway, AEON surely did surprise me with their brutality and with the members their line up consists of! I am sure that many deathsters will like this album (and I hope my review, too!).

Swedish metallers AEON carry 8 years of history on their backs, and adding that the band's members play in bands like DEFACED CREATION, DIABOLICUM and THE EQUINOX OV THE GODS (their new album kicks major ass!) you can obviously see that we are not dealing with some amateur lads here. Rise To Dominate is the band's second full-length album and I am here to review their brutal assault.

Even though AEON hail from beautiful Sweden, they have chosen to play Death Metal as US bands like MORTICIAN, SUFFOCATION, CANNIBAL CORPSE and DEICIDE have played. Their music is incredibly brutal and features the necessary amount of melody and technique so as not to make you get bored or something like that. They have avoided sounding too melodic or too technical. The vocals are really nice and the guitar work that Dlimi has created is more than just good. Fjellstrom's drumming is awesome, offering brutality as well as groove to the already great Death Metal compositions. One more thing that makes Rise To Dominate really nice is the great production, which was done by the high and mighty Dan Swano at Unisound Studios.

AEON's raw sound is not something that will change your life, but it will be a more than good addition to your Death Metal collection. And don't let the fact that they belong to Metal Blade make you create a negative opinion on the band. Let's not forget that their debut album Bleeding The False was released through the underground cult Death Metal label Unique Leader.
