AEON Officially Welcomes Back Drummer NILS FJELLSTRÖM

Swedish metallers AEON have issued the following update:

"It feels like its time to make up our minds about our drummer situation. We have now decided to give Nils [Fjellström] a real second chance. We have been playing together with him for about seven weeks now since he got back home and he is showing a very strong will to make this happen.

"And what about his other bands?

"Yes, he is still playing drums in other bands and so on, but that was never the main reason we kicked him out in the first place. With some proper future planning and his strong will to make this work, we are sure it will.

"So horns up and lets welcome Nils back in the band."

AEON's latest CD, "Rise to Dominate" was released in the U.S. on September 4 via Metal Blade Records. The follow-up to 2005's "Bleeding the False" (Unique Leader) was recorded at Empire Studio and contains "twelve tracks of technical death metal," according to a posting on the band's web site. The CD 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!"
