"... they slither their way into your psyche whilst thrashing like bastards.
Get yourself wormed immediately!" (Kerrang! - KKKK)
"...and then there's the grandness ... the sound of the studio, the warmth
rising from the amps and the passion that follows everything that Samoth
writes... this is definitely one worth its money" (Rocksound UK. 5/5)
"... a modern sounding record with no time for sloppy performances or clums
"This record will firmly establish Zyklon as a band of their own strength and character," states Candlelight's U.S. Director Paula Hogan (Who I know and give Praise un2). "If fans didn't find them on World ov Worms , Aeon will open the gates completely."
Since December 2000 DigitalMetal has provided the world metal community with reliable, respectable and timely information, and we're pleased to offer Zyklon's incredible "Psyklon Aeon" as a 160 Kbps MP3 download and Windows Media low/hi-bandwidth stream. Furthermore, DigitalMetal will also feature an exclusive interview with Zyklon founder/guitarist Samoth (formerly of Emperor), a breakdown of each track by Samoth, a review of Aeon , a contest to win copies of the album before release date, and Zyklon wallpaper.
"DigitalMetal since its launch has supported not only Zyklon but Candlelight in their U.S. operations," continues Hogan. "DigitalMetal supports music that is quality and reports news and feature interviews with an educated background. Fans can and should look to DigitalMetal for insight on upcoming albums as well as albums they just might have missed. It's a great music source and overall music site."
Zyklon's Aeon was produced at Akkerhaugen Lydstudio and mixed at Fredman Studios by renowned producer Fredrik Nordström (In Flames, Opeth). The album marks the debut of vocalist/bassist Secthdamon (Myrkskog, ex-Odium), whose emphasis on intensity and variety sets Zyklon far apart from peers. Friend and prominent black metaller Bård "Faust" Eithun returns to pen lyrics. Eithun's apocalyptic/sociological viewpoint enhances Zyklon's vicious forward projection. Aeon also features guest appearances from Daemon (ex-Limbonic Art), Ofu Kahn and Lrz (Red Harvest), and Toby A (VOID).
The full track listing for Aeon is:
1. Psyklon Aeon
2. Core Solution
3. Subtle Manipulation
4. Two Thousand Years
5. No Names Above the Names
