We all know music evolves; it's inevitable that, as is the case with any form of extreme metal, when you look back through the years you will notice a significant change in what we metalheads call black metal. Some bands take that experimentation to a whole new level of boldness and obscurity, which is where we find Aenaon.

How to easy describe this band? And this album...a Greek version about Enslaved, whit own influences prog black sound, but less calm vocal parts as Enslaved do.

A Nice Guy
I just discovered how many members of this band were formerly with the bands Varathron and Katavasia, which is a great surprise for me. I agree with Bad English, the progressive structure behind this does remind me in some ways of the later Enslaved material, but this band does have their own original take on things too, alot of jazz fusion involved for instance.

I really enjoy it tbh, it's very complex but also very interesting, and the instrumentation is actually really top quality, with yet again another saxophone making an appearance, which is becoming an experimental trend in black metal, and not in a bad way either (Just yet).

I really failed to spot any originality in their music. Almost all of it was already recorded an age ago, mostly by late Opeth, just before they went completely insane and decided that they want to reenact Led Zeppelin.

You, younglings, may not remember that Opeth was absolute, ultimate death metal beast

I am wondering when some band decide to mix prog with grind core...

I heard plenty of bands such as Behemoth, Rotting Christ and Enslaved but didn't hear any Opeth in their music.

After reading your comment I thought that maybe I was wrong so I listened to it again. I can clearly hear in it echoes of Watershed.

How serendipitous, I was wondering just last week after listening to an older song of theirs if they would ever release a new album. Very glad they did!

In this album, there are many elements or to put it in another way, strong but not many in number portions of early Opeth, and a delicate flavour of Devin Townsend's solo works but all these combined in a masterful way with an undisputed identity of their own. Great album. Period.

Awesome work of extreme progressive metal... for sure sounds like to Enslaved but their sax sounds amazing.
