Aeon - _Dark Order_
(Necropolis, 2001)
by: Aaron McKay (6.5 out of 10)
If "clean" is a word you could possible get anywhere -near- Aeon, I'd contend their brutal "un-Swedish" sound from, guess where... Sweden is a "cleaned-up" modification on Houwitser's dementia. Think Coercion _Forever Dead_ with more of an truculently acidic kick. Aeon can indisputably stir things up in a heavily rhythmic fashion. For example, track three, "With Blood" (2:14 - 2:40), and my favorite cut from this originally 2000 demo, "The Awakening". I mention "The Awakening" for its overbearingly backbreaking style of boorish groove; certainly the best track on the release. "Bloodlust", "Eternal Hate" and "Hell Unleashed" should (corpse) paint you a pretty good idea of what is in store for you on _Dark Order_. Same ol' "devil this and Satan that" evident here, but with more of the grounded heavy riffing Aeon is wonderfully skilled at, it stands a very wonderful chance of making the next non-demo material that much more bearable. You're almost there, guys. I'll be watching closely for _Dark Order_'s follow-up.
