AEON Cancel Metal Blade Record's 25th Anniversary US Tour
July 20, 2007, 11 years ago
Sweden's AEON have issued the following update:"We're sorry to say that we have no other option but to cancel the Metal Blade 25th Anniversary US tour in September/October. This is due to a decision by Nils ( Fjellström - drums) to not go on the tour since it would conflict with upcoming DARK FUNERAL shows / tours and some personal family business.
We did try out a stand-in drummer to bring on the tour, but it was a to short notice for this guy. He is a great drummer but usually he plays metal in the vein of JUDAS PRIEST's Painkiller album and we could only have done the slower Aeon-songs, which did not felt 100% Aeon. We want to give the American fans exactly what they would expect from an Aeon show.
We are very sorry and angry for this since the whole plan for the release of our upcoming album (already from the booking of studio) was for it to come out before the tour would start.
We would like to apologize to Metal Blade for letting you down after all the work you guys put down on us and this tour, and not the least... to all of our US fans. Hopefully, we will come to tour the US later on."
Aeon are set to unleash their new album Rise To Dominate - Metal Blade will issue the record on September 7th in Germany/Austria/Switzerland/Italy and the 10th throughout the rest of Europe. The tracklisting is as follows: 'Helel Ben-Shachar', 'Spreading Their Disease', 'Living Sin', 'Hate Them', 'You Pray To Nothing', 'Caressed By The Holy Man', 'House Of Greed', 'Godless', 'When The War Comes', 'There Will Be No Heaven For Me', 'Luke 4-5-7', 'No One Escapes Us'.
Dan Swanö (EDGE OF SANITY) handled the mixing and mastering of the album at Unisound Studios.
