Aion - _Aion_
(Independent, 1999)
by: Alex Cantwell (3 out of 10)
With the opening minute or so of this CD I thought I was in for a good arse kicking, but that first bit of music is deceptive. For the duration of the disc, the guitars and drums are very powerful indeed, but unfortunately these nine songs are littered with awful keyboards that reduce the available power of Aion to that of, say, Human League. The situation worsens when the singer opens his mouth, spewing forth grunts that sound akin to Iced Earth's vocalist chasing pigs. If the members who form the foundation of this band -- meaning the drummer, guitarists, and bassist -- would ditch the vocalist and the keyboardist/programmer, the results would be great, I'm sure; but until then they will be kept far away from -my- CD players.
