A teaser for "Path Of Fire", the forthcoming third album from Swedish death metallers AEON, can be viewed below. Due later in the year via Metal Blade Records, the CD was recorded in September 2009 at Empire Studio in Östersund, Sweden and was mixed the following month at Mana Recording Studios in St, Petersburg, Florida by Erik Rutan (HATE ETERNAL, MORBID ANGEL, CANNIBAL CORPSE). The mastering was handled by Alan Douches at West West Side Music (CONVERGE, HATEBREED, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN) in New Windsor, New York. All artwork and layout was made by Daniel Dlimi.Commented the band: "'Path of Fire' is probably the most intense AEON album up to date. And with a production that sounds more organic and 'classic death metal'- sounding rather then the nowadays typical 'supermodern, compressed right-the-fuck-out of dynamics, loudness war' production…. "You are all in for a real treat. Folks…. this IS death metal! "Needless to say, we are really happy with how the album turned out and and we can't wait for you to get a chance to listen to it." AEON last fall parted ways with bassist Max Carlberg and replaced him with Victor Brandt (TOTALT JÄVLA MÖRKER, ex-SATYRICON). Brandt has since left the band due to scheduling conflicts and was himself replaced by Marcus Edvardsson (SOULDRAINER, SANCTIFICATION). AEON's last CD, "Rise to Dominate" was released in the U.S. on September 4, 2007 via Metal Blade Records. The follow-up to 2005's "Bleeding the False" (Unique Leader) was recorded at Empire Studio and was mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö (EDGE OF SANITY) at Unisound Studios. CANNIBAL CORPSE bassist Alex Webster previously stated about AEON: "AEON's musicianship is among the best in death metal, but their songwriting is what truly sets them apart. It's rare to find a death metal band that is simultaneously crushingly brutal and infectiously catchy. AEON is one of those rare bands!"
