Hmmm, why have no one signed this band? It seems really odd that a band who delivers an album of this quality and which has existed since 1997 hasn't been picked up along the way.
Throughout this marathon of an album (78 minutes!), the Hamburg, Germany based Aeons Confer take the listener through a journey of majestic soundscapes and a stylistic blend which ranges from progressive death metal with clean vocal a la Mercenary over Devin Townsend intensity and compressed sound to symphonic black metal bombast in the vein of Dimmu Borgir.
Aeons Confer tell stories with their music and build an atmosphere of epic proportions. They use spoken intros, massive keyboard sounds, orchestral blasts and raw metal effectiveness with a decidedly modern sound.
Go on, labels, get in touch with these guys - there's so much crap out there that you're willingly putting your names on - why not put your name to someone who can actually create good music! This is a really good album, there's not much more to say about that. Check it out.
