Aeons | Imperative Management:

What do you associate with the Isle Of Man? High speed motorbike racing? Rugged coastlines and tailless cats? Probably not progressive, adventurous metal of the very highest quality...not yet, anyway. Aeons started out in 2016, formed by talented musicians with extensive experience on the Isle Of Man scene – some with previous album releases to their name. At first their ambitions stretched no further than the shores of their island home, but it quickly became apparent that there was something special about this new band, a chemistry between its members that was starting to produce quite remarkable music.

In 2019 Aeons entered Skatandah Studios and laid down the tracks for their debut album, A Tragic End, which they released independently in October of that year. Despite minimal promotion word of this ambitious opening gambit began to spread through the metal press, with respected webzine WORSHIP METAL declaring it to be ‘vividly expressed and flawlessly played’ in a 9/10 review overflowing with praise. Live shows in support of the impressive debut were constrained to the band’s home territory and quickly they turned their minds to A Tragic End’s successor.

Over the course of the next eighteen months Aeons worked meticulously to craft a second album that could really lift them above the levels they had so far achieved and make them contenders on the international stage. They wrote and rewrote, arranged and rearranged until they had seven genuinely spectacular songs, forty five minutes of music that showcased everything that Aeons had to offer. Recorded once more in Skatandah Studios, Consequences was everything the band had striven for and more. To accompany the incredible music the band worked diligently to produce an array of stunning artwork to make Consequences the complete package – something that the critics would be unable to ignore. Determined to give Consequences the chance it deserved, Aeons reached out to Imperative PR - and as soon as the company saw and heard everything that the band had achieved they were keen to be involved.

In late September of 2021 Consequences was released and with the support of Imperative it landed on the desks of metal media outlets around the world, where it was welcomed with open arms. From major print magazines like ZERO TOLERANCE, POWERPLAY and SCREAM, to a plethora of respected global webzines like GREEK REBELS, DARGEDIK, SOUND MAGNET, AVE NOCTUM, STORMBRINGER, METAL ITALIA and ZWARE METALEN, wherever it was heard the brilliance of Consequences was recognised. Even Aeons’ first champions at WORSHIP METAL were inspired to rate the album a 9.5/10, even higher than the debut album they had loved so much and make it their Album Of The Week.

The success of Consequences lead to Aeons and Imperative PR agreeing a long term management deal and also caught the eyes and ears of promoters on the UK mainland. Once the restrictions imposed by the global pandemic were finally relaxed, Aeons were able to sally forth from their island stronghold. In 2022 they headed to Scotland for a headline show in Perth and an appearance on the bill of the Hordes X festival in Dundee, alongside SAOR and SHADOW’S FAR.

Throughout 2023 the band worked tirelessly on music for their next album, breaking only to venture to London for their first ever show in the capital, with DIE KUR and PHOBETOR. This performance strengthened even further the formidable live reputation that Aeons had started to build with their 2022 appearances in Scotland. And those new songs that the band had been so meticulously crafting? They were strong enough to attract the attention of international label, Sliptrick Records. 2023 concluded with the band announcing their new alliance with Sliptrick for the 2024 release of their third album…The Ghosts Of What We Knew…

The Ghosts Of What We Knew was unveiled on July 2nd, on CD and digital formats and there was immediately no doubt that this was Aeons’ strongest, most accomplished and dazzlingly creative album to date. From punchy, irresistible songs with immediate impact, like ‘Home’ and ‘Circles’ to the beautifully melodic ‘Cascades’, the emotionally wrought and unforgettable ‘Bloodstains’ to the superlative epic, ‘Ghosts’, this album represented Aeons ascending to a higher musical level. The potential for this band is now limitless. It won’t be long now before everyone’s first response to that question, ‘what do you associate with the Isle Of Man?’ will be just one, single word – Aeons.
