Biography

UK based progressive metallers AEON ZEN - a rising force in the progressive metal scene - return in 2014 with EPHEMERA.

Formed in 2008 around founding member, composer and multi-instrumentalist Rich Hinks, Aeon Zen released their debut album, ‘A Mind’s Portrait’, in 2009, quickly followed up by 2010’s ‘The Face of The Unknown’. Continuing from strength to strength, Aeon Zen brought their own brand of creative, complex, melodic progressive metal to fans all over the world, along with their highly energized live shows , most significantly in 2011, when Devin Townsend tapped Aeon Zen as main support for the Devin Townsend Project’s 12-nation European tour that year.

Over the years, Aeon Zen, in addition to the vocals of Andi Kravljaca and Rich Hinks, have enlisted the aid of guest performers such as Atle Petersen (solo artist, Above Symmetry), Nils K Rue (Pagan’s Mind), Michael Eriksen (Circus Maximus), Elyes Bouchoucha (Myrath), Jem Godfrey (Frost*), Andreas Novak (Mind’s Eye), and Jonny Tatum (Eumeria), each adding his own biological and technical distinctiveness to the band’s own.

2013 saw the release of the band’s third album, ‘Enigma’. A departure from previous records, this concept album displayed a band continuing to grow and mature musically while building a solid and increasing fanbase, as well as moving on from early influences like of Dream Theater, Metallica and Opeth, to creating their own unique sound and identity.

    It sounds a bit like a "best of prog metal" album, with music that sounds like it came straight from Devin Townsend ("Warning"), or from Dream Theater ("Still Human"), all with an Ayreon-esque flow/story. It's by no means bad, actually pretty good, but it needs a unique face/sound to make it in the mainstream prog.

    Nice comment, Carlozm! I cannot see me doing this in two years... I think this guy is going to break through hard in a few years! And he deserves it.

    All the haters and other complainers: The band is ONE GUY. He does all instruments and sings on some tracks as well. And he's 21 years old now. Take a look at yourself, compare what you'd achieved when you were 21, then comment :)

    There is some great stuff spread out over the album but I think they need one solid singer to give the project cohesion.

    Time Divine sounds good, but I have deja vu. I already heard it (or something which sounds like this). It's a pity =\
