Australia is known for producing some exciting metal bands and Aeon of Horus are no different. Aeon of Horus are a progressive death metal band hailing from Canberra, Australia. The four piece combines technicality and rhythmic complexity with a sweeping dynamic, venturing into symphonic passages and subtle melodic interludes. This sweeping style is clearly demonstrated on their debut album ‘The Embodiment Of Darkness And Light’. The album is one that could become a landmark release for the often one dimensional death metal genre.
Aeon of Horus formed in 2006 and began playing live in early 2007. By late 2007 they had recorded and released a self-titled EP. The band continued to write and in early 2008 they began recording their first full length album, ‘The Embodiment of Darkness and Light’. The initial self-release of the ‘Embodiment of Darkness and Light’ saw the band gain widespread critical acclaim; TheMetalinquisition. com claimed the band had the ability to take the metal world by storm. The album also earned the band several high profile tour supports including Satyricon (NOR) and Pig Destroyer (USA).
