It's a great day to be a fan of technical/progressive death metal! 'Ruination,' The first single from Aegaeon's upcoming LP 'Age' is out and it's a freaking mule kick to your pretty face. The album, due out on June 9th, is shaping up to be a beast of a listening experience; and anything but linear if 'Ruination' is any indicator of what the band has cooked up for us.
On selecting a track to release to the raging masses, Aegaeon says: "It was somewhat difficult to pick a single because this album is intended to be one flowing piece; but we felt Ruination is a nice balance of the familiar Aegaeon sound, yet gives a sneak peak at the evolved direction of the new record." With original vocalist Jim Martin back in the Aegaeon camp, providing growls culled from the nether regions of a parallel, much more evil dimension, 'Ruination' feels like the score to the birth of a star- and I need more! Check out the official YouTube video below and if you're picking up what Aegaeon is laying down, you can pre-order the LP through Big Cartel. And by all means, drop by here once you've peeped it for yourself and let us know what you think. Rage on! JPR
