Review: Aeon – Aeons Black

Rated:

4/5

Death metal is often described using the vocabulary of violence and war—some songs thrash and mangle, others tear and rip. But few albums truly evoke a sense of carnage like Aeons Black. These Swedish veterans have honed their take on Floridian-styled death metal into a monster of an album that rumbles and churns like a stampeding army, yet sacrifices none of Aeon’s trademark focus on memorable, pit-stoking riffs. The result is one of the best death-metal albums of 2012, the strongest album of Aeon’s career, and a near-essential purchase for anybody with even a passing interest in the genre. CLARKE READ
