BIOGRAPHY

During the summer of 1999, the four members: Tommy Dahlström, Zeb Nilsson, Johan Hjelm and Arttu Malkki of the newly broken up band Defaced Creation decided to form a new death-metal band that would try to create a more pioneering and interesting style, instead of doing the usual “old-school” death-metal, (even though the roots was in the “old-school” death-metal). Morgan Nordbakk joins as fill in guitarist and during the fall of that year, Aeon recorded their first demo, which included the songs “Return of Apolluon”, “Eternal Hate”, “With Blood they Pay”, “The Awakening”, “Bloodlust” and “Hell Unleashed”. In May of 2001, the 6-track demo was released as a MCD – entitled Dark Order – thru Necropolis Records. Dark Order sold out very quickly and is still in high demand.

Later in 2001, Morgan Nordbakk leaves Aeon, to be replaced by Daniel Dlimi (ex-Equinox ov the Gods). Daniel is an experienced song-writer in Aeon’s style of death metal, so the transition was smooth and easy. In the summer of 2002, drummer Arttu Malkki leaves the band to be replaced by Nils Fjellström followed by work on their first album.

In the fall of 2003, Aeon began recording Bleeding the False, which was released on September 20th, 2005 through Unique Leader. The album was received well in the metal underground with both fans and press.

In April 2006, Aeon hit the road in Europe with Cannibal Corpse and were met with an overwhelming response by the fans. Later that summer, Aeon parted ways with longtime bass player Johan Hjelm (replaced by Max Carlberg), and in July, they signed a deal with Metal Blade Records.

In April 2007, the band recorded the album Rise to Dominate and in September, it was released by Metal Blade Records. Much like the previous album, this one received very good response from both media and fans and demand for the band to tour in North America continued to grow.

In January 2009, the band hits the European roads with Hate Eternal, Misery Index and See You Next Tuesday, and after that, they continued working on the new album. In September, Aeon parted ways with bass player Max Carlberg, who was replaced by former Satyricon bass player Victor Brandt, and the band recorded the album Path of Fire. In November, Aeon supported Mayhem on their Swedish dates on their “25 Years of Chaos” tour. In January 2010, bass player Victor leaves Aeon and was replaced by Marcus Edvardsson.

In May 2010, Aeon released their third full-length album, Path Of Fire thru Metal Blade Records, which was mixed by multi-talent Erik Rutan at Mana Studio in Florida and mastered by Alan Douches for West West Side Music. Once more the band was met with high praise from the death metal community and press alike with Metal Review saying the album “excels in every department required for a stellar death metal record” and About.com calling the album “a juicy slab of prime-cut blasphemous death metal.” In September of the same year, drummer Nils Fjellström left Aeon and by November the band re-recruits original / founding member, Arttu Mallki, to once again be the force behind the drums. In April 2011 Aeon headlined a shorter UK / EU tour with Cerebral Bore and Flyed Disciple. 

Enter 2012: By the 1st of June, Aeon began recording their 4th full-length album and third release for Metal Blade, Aeons Black, with engineer/producer Ronnie Björnström (Garageland Studios).

The band released Aeons Black in late 2012. In 2013, it was announced that drummer Malkki was expecting twins, and thus he decided to take a break from Aeon. His spot was temporarily filled by Emil Wiksten. However, as of January 28, 2013, Wiksten has replaced Malkki permanently. Later in 2013, it was announced that bassist Marcus Edvardsson had stepped down in order to focus more on his other band Souldrainer. His replacement is Tony Östman. In October 2013, Daniel Dlimi left the band.  He was replaced by Ronnie Björnström, who had produced Aeons Black, in January 2014. Björnström, in turn, departed from Aeon in March 2015, for health reasons.

Aeons Black is the fourth studio album by Swedish band Aeon, released on November 20, 2012. It is the only Aeon record featuring bassist Marcus Edvardsson, who left the band in March 2013, and the first record since 1999’s Dark Order to feature drummer Arttu Malkki. It is also the last album to feature Malkki as he has left the band due to family reasons, as well as the last album to feature rhythm guitarist Daniel Dlimi.

Commented Aeon founding guitarist Zeb Nilsson: “This is definitely our most varied album to date; it has heavier songs, yet it also has lots of fast blastbeats and double bass drumming. It’s groovier this time, which I think we lacked on our last album, ‘Path Of Fire‘, which was fast-paced almost all the way through. That, and the amazing mix by Ronnie Björnström, makes me feel pretty confident that this album will appeal to more people than our previous albums. And no, we have not gone softer in any aspect; it’s just easier to catch with all this grooviness. It’s metal right up your ass!”

Path of Fire is the third studio album by the Swedish band Aeon. It was released on 21/24 May in Europe and 25 May in the U.S. via Metal Blade Records.

As former bassist Max Carlberg had left Aeon at the time of the album recording and studio sessions had already been booked, preventing replacement bassist Victor Brandt from learning the songs in time, the bass on Path of Fire is handled by Aeon’s guitarists Zeb Nilsson and Daniel Dlimi.

Guitarist and the graphic artist of Aeon, Daniel Dlimi, commented the cover art: “I created this symbol/badge that for me reflects life, death and the path you have chosen to live your life by. It’s about whatever you want to chain yourself to 10 commandments or live free after your own conscience and will.”

On April 19th, Aeon posted “Kill Them All” for streaming online and Nilsson commented: “This is kind of funny, ’cause I actually dreamt that we were performing this song live and it sounded so cool that I had to start working on it the day after I had the dream. Of course, all the details in it were not in my dream, but the whole concept and idea behind how it was gonna sound was all very realistic. This is a very fast song and it is easy to catch I think. It has some really heavy parts too, and the leads on it ended up really cool too. I think this song will be a good first sample of this album!”

In June, Aeon released a music video for “Forgiveness Denied”.
