Length: 58 minutes aprox.

Band


A Journey Through The Innermost is the highly-anticipated debut album from American-British progressive metal band, Aeons. The quarted made their breakthrough on the scene just some moths ago, on October, with the release of their hit-single Dreaming In Clouds which had an impressive commercial reception. The band went on to release another single independently, Let Me Fly which met a more moderate reception. Then, Aeons decided to sign a record deal with american indie studio, Songs to love and die by and released two more singles taken from their debut album: Until The End featuring Penetralia's Koda Espinosa and their most-successful single, By Your Side featuring Lily Abbot.


The album was recorded between April and June 2014 on the Rever Music Studios and the post-recording work started on July 2014. It was produced by the band's leader, Bill Owens and was completely 'created' by the band members, except for the apparitions of Koda Espinosa (Penetralia) and Lily Abbot as guest singers.


Band


"The Journey" will begin this 23rd January, all songs will be availalbe for streaming since that date and the album will be officialy released through Songs To Love And Die By on 30th January 2014. The release will be availalble in four different formats: Digital download, CD, standard black vynil and limited edition picture vynil.


About the music and lyrics, Bill Owens commented: "It's a journey through different sounds and atmospheres. It's a real journey through our innermost, I think this is a very personal album, it shows our feelings and emotions. The lyrics are abstract sometimes, but they're not senseless, they're all very deep and sensitive. Musically you'll mainly face a progressive metal effort, but we put a lot of different elements in each song... Symphonic, orchestral, heavy, melodic, dark and bright, I can't define this album in one word. I'm extremely proud of it, it's like a part of me. Three of us particpates as lead vocalists and we have also two great guests, so it has an unique blend of styles and voices."

Genre: Progressive Metal
Lenght: 5:41
Writters: Bill Owens



About:

Dreaming In Clouds is the first track on the album as it's the band's first single too. This track is a classic progressive metal song. It features a lot of rythm-changes and different voices, provided by three members of the band, creating a very mixed blench of styles.

"I wrote this tune several months ago, it was composed to be part of a second album by Anima, but as that never came true, I decided to put it on Aeons. It's a very progressive song, very influenced by huge acts like Mind, this is one of the catchiest songs on our upcoming album, one of the best chorous we could get! It's lyrics are very clear: they are about a man (or woman, why not?) that's searching for something, that something is really hard to describe, it's something inside of yourself...But this person is searching in the wrong places."



Lyrics:

Arise like the Phoenix from the ashes,
and fly away pass the stars,
to find the path to the times,
when everything was still fine.
And now when you are still not certain,
what you are looking for,
the answers seem to be in a dream,
you see every night.

You are searching from the wrong places,
the answer it is inside of you,
you are dreaming in clouds trying to spread out,
your wings once more…


You open your eyes to see the bright light,
blinded by it you try to blink for awhile,
your eyes wont shut you cant see anymore,
you wonder now why you did it for.


Again you are climbing down the stairs,
dreaming you'll find what you're looking for,
and now you are a hundred years old.
Long gone youth, near memory in mind.
Priest asks what you long before you die,
in mind you only have one question.
Why I never found what I was looking for,
And I die without the answer.

Genre: Heavy / Progressive Metal
Lenght: 4:17
Writters: Bill Owens & Jordan Levin



About:

The Master is one of the most straight-forward songs on the album, very influenced by 80's heavy / power metal sound this tune comes as a very different effort from the other tracks on the album. It has a lot of twin-guitars solos and fast drum and bass 'parades'.

"This is a song that I wrote alongside Jordan, it's one of the first tunes we have written after forming the band...It's very different from the other tracks, a more fast and direct straight-forward heavy metal song, totally influenced by 80's british and german heavy metal. I didn't use any pick to record the bass-tracks, I used my fingers, as the real bass-heroes of heavy metal!"



Lyrics:

The night is the universe,
arousing you from your rest.
You're longing to find
a victim to feed your kind!

Its blood is the energy
which will keep you fully alive,
all through the time
and eternity.


You are the master of the dark,
ruthless being of the night!

And through the darkness you will fly,
spread your wings against the light,
until you finally find the princess of dark.

The flames from the hell
from where you're coming,
contrast with the cold in your body.
Until you can fill
your heart with eternal darkness!


The stake and the iron cross,
might finish your long existence.
However you'll live
eternally in mankind.

You will be legend in this town,
the most macabre story
one could ever find.


You are the master of the dark,
ruthless being of the night!

On and on through the times,
your spirit will come back
to look for your gloomy princess of dark!

Genre: Progressive Metal / Power Ballad
Lenght: 5:32
Writters: Bill Owens



About:

By Your Side is the fourth and latest single from the band, it became the most-successful release of Aeons and the band's second number one single. This is one of the band's most emotional and low tracks from the album. It has a lot of progressive elements and it's described as a power-ballad by the band members. It's one of the few songs without growl or screamed vocals, this tune features completely clean voices with the special contribution by Lily Abbot.

"I'm completely excited with this song, we have the greatest, the queen of rock, Lily Abbot, singing with us on this song...It's just incredible guys! She has one of the best and deepest songs I've ever heard so when I wrote this song I always thought we had to have her singing. This is a really emotional and deep song, it's not so heavy or fast, but I really love it. BYS has a lot of melodies, an incredible lead-guitar work and totally clean vocals. The lyrics are really deep and romantic I think, I obviously wrote them thinking in the love of my life...They're very personal and sweet, I really like them. This is one and only power-ballad on the album and I believe it turned out greatly!"



Lyrics:

Time has gone by and still it seemed like a dream to me,
your memory today
stays deep inside myself.

So far away from here,
I see you now my dear,
Sweet angel you will be a part of me.

If you give me a sign,
Things can turn out all right
I would like to have
At least another chance!


Far beyond, I am planning to reach
Where no one has been I'll go
Your tender love I will achieve.

Live today, with no fear for tomorrow
I will always be by your side
And shadows will remain behind.

And all the pain I had
Just vanished in the air
The moment you look at me
Nothing else seemed to care.


You make me smile again
Tears have long gone away
I want to hear your voice, so tenderly...

If you give me a sign
Things can turn out all right
I would like to be by your side one more time.


Far beyond, I am planning to reach
Where no one has been I'll go
Your tender love 1 will achieve.

Live today with no fear for tomorrow
I will always be by your side
And shadows will remain behind!


If you give me a sign,
Things can turn out all right
I would like to have
At least another chance!

If you give me a sign
Things can turn out all right
I would like to be by your side one more time...

About:

Walk Your Way is another low and mid-tempo song. It's one of the most-melodic and 'happy' tracks on the album, with a lot of symphonic elements and the predominance of the keyboards and pianos, and clean vocals. It's the second song on the album without growl vocals and it's lead by high-tone leading vocals by Bill Owens.

"Well, this is one of the most happy and optimistic songs on the album. It's very influenced by hard rock and melodic metal, you can notice that the keyboards have the leading role on it. It's also one of our catchiest songs, it was one of the first options for our debut single but at the end we decided to release a heavier song. We worked a lot on the chorous, we wanted to make it memorable. It's one of the few easy-listening songs we have recorded, but I think it's really good. When I wrote the lyrics, I was thinking in my friends...I want to give a message, a good one: you have to walk your own way, you will be defeated but you have to keep fighting for your desires and dreams! It's like the prequel of 'Until The End' which addresses the same topics."



Lyrics:

Pure things remain untouched,
hidden behind imaginary scenarios.
Even if I try, I won't make it...Why?
Silence and the void two proud warriors
are mysteries, and fragments of lived life,
like mysteries the crumbs of memories died.

Again and again scream, tremble and modify,
again and again defeated but still alive.
Though you dare to walk your way.


There is no right way or easy choice,
no limits or insanity for living, no.
No harm done while you're true to yourself.

Go, fly, fly free, break the chains.
Become what you were born to be,
no labels, no strings, no poisoned veins,
pure souls, pure souls have their reason for being.


Again and again scream, tremble and modify,
again and again defeated but still alive.
Though you dare to walk your way.


A pure soul will always be untouchable,
and only children, madmen and lovers which
smile with the smallest attention - so frank
they do not look if you were good or bad.

Go, do not fear, who really love you will.
Laugh with your insanity and cry your pain.
Come on, spread your wings.
Though you can, keep on being a pure soul!


Again and again scream, tremble and modify,
again and again defeated but still alive,
Though you dare to walk your way...

Genre: Progressive Metal
Lenght: 4:30
Writters: Bill Owens & Jordan Levin



About:

The Tunnel is the shortest tune on the album, a low/mid-tempo heavy and dark song with doom metal and symphonic influences. One of the darkest and deepest efforts you can find in the journey. This song features a very dirty guitar sound on the main riff but also have a very melodic interlude. Screamed and spoken vocals returns for this effort. It's one of the few songs with only one lead vocalist, Bill Owens doesn't share the vocal duties on it.

"Hell yeah, a very dark and low song. I wrote it after a dream I had: we were on the Rever studios rehearsing before recording 'Dreaming In Clouds' and I have a really incredible dream, then I woke up and start writing, Jordan was here and together we finished the song. We wrote it in just some minutes and I think it turned out really well, they're very deep, emotional and romantic, I think, we love that type of lyrics! Musically it has a lot of stoner rock and doom metal influences, I love bands like Black Sabbath so I wanted to make something with dirty guitar riffs...but it also has one of the most-melodic interludes on the album, we achieved a great contrast there."



Lyrics:

The glances are crossed
and the thoughts arise.
Today I feel desire to live.
I wish you were here with me,
to spend this time at your side...
To spend this time by your side...

Sometimes the time goes by very quickly,
and we did not repair in some of our acts.
It would be important that in any place,
you could conect with me...

In the tunnel of souls I will see you.
Then I will tell you how much I love you.
You always had faith, the tunnel already arrives.
Then we will see known faces, we will return to laugh.
There will be no pain, the tears will not be, they belong to the past...

I will always remember your warm hands,
your love towards me only left good memories.
I know that you are well, in the tunnel of souls I will find you,
I am sure of that...

About:

Until The End was released as the band's third single on December 2014. It's a mixing of doom metal's low and dirty guitar riffs, extreme metal blast-beats and metalcore growl and screamed vocals. This song has less orchestral and symphonic elements and is one of the darkest and heaviest tunes on the album. It features the special contribution of Koda Espinosa as a guest vocalist.

"I'm very happy to have Koda Espinosa as a lead vocalist on this song, he has a really incredible and personal voice so it's a great element for this track, I consider him a good friend and it was incredible to work with Penetralia, I think our voices made a cool mixing. We have no pianos or orchestral samples on this song, more straightforward dirty-based-riffs heavy metal! We put a lot of doom metal and stoner rock elements on the guitar sound and there're also some blast-beats and growl vocals. The lyrics are really positive and optimistic, very similar to 'Walk Your Way', it's like a sequel of that song, as I previously commented on that, I wanted to send a good message to our fans: you have to fight for what you want, never surrender, no step backwards! You've to fight if you want to achieve your objectives, your dreams. There's no victory without effort and sacrifice!"



Lyrics:

If your passion's pushing you,
deep inside your inner self,
you will feel your fire spread,
then you'll be able to get
to that distant place,
where you can fully express yourself.

Fate has set its print on you.
It is written in your heart,
nothing else could ever change,
let yourself go with the flow
to that distant place,
where you can express yourself!


You will fight until the end!
Longing to conquer,
and to write down,
trying to explain
your own story.

I will see you resurrect
from many defeats.
Your last goal is to achieve
your private conquest!


If you still burn with desire,
inside your soul you will feel
how illusion's growing up.
They will never stop you now,
you're going to fight,
until you can win
with all your pride!


You will fight until the end!
Longing to conquer,
and to write down,
trying to explain
your own story.

I will see you resurrect
from many defeats.
Your last goal is to achieve
your private conquest!

About:

A Journey Through The Innermost is the title track and it's one of the most ambitious and complex compositions on the album. This progressive metal symphony is an epic journey among different sounds and genres. With very complex guitar riffs and drum blast beats, this tune is the most progressive-influenced of the album and features a lot of symphonic, orchestral and neo-classical interludes. The over-8-minutes "journey" goes from clean and melodic to growl and screamed voices, from calm symphonic interludes to extremely heavy death metal blast beats. This song has a very dark atmosphere, because of the low-tone keyboards and deep voices of Bill Owens and Jordan Levin in some parts.

"Hell yeah, let's begin this journey!...Well, probably this is the best song I've written in my life. It's a heavy, dark, epic and melodic poem which has elements from very different genres. You can notice symphonic keyboards, orchestral samples, extreme metal blast beats, cleand and growl voices...It's like a real journey through music. I have been composing this song for a long time and now that's streaming, I'm really happy with it. It's a really ambitious and complex tune, I think it defines the sound of Aeons. This is Aeons: epic progressive metal. The lyrics are extensive but not so complicated, the protagonist is on a journey to find himself...This is a really deep song, you'll feel you're into this journey, trust me! Listen to this song with headphones, with your eyes closed and in completely darkness...you'll be inside this story."



Lyrics:

I am in this journey, but it's the last one...
I must find my truth lying deep in the unknown...
I move through many worlds with steps that devour the distances,
to find myself.

History holds my last rites and regards.
Without regret, I go to the inner rings that hold the cards,
dimensions of the errant souls,
they show us their destiny.

While the wind trembles to remove
the damned souls that I take inside.


I discovered a dreamed universe,
in brilliant manifestations of light images,
and perfect romanticism.
I must continue my epic travel,
and find myself.

Elements lost in their world...we vent our passions.
We dance ethereal, the compass of the imagined.


I am in my last journey,
I need to find my own truth,
travelling through infinite worlds,
looking for nameless things.
I have to find myself.

Please remember my last rites and regards.
Without fear, I go through the circles of endless time,
dimensions of the unknown,
they show me their destiny.

While the wind trembles to remove
the damned souls that I take inside.


I discovered an endless universe,
with countless manifestations of celestial images,
and perfect symmetry.
I must continue my epic travel, through this inner space,
to find myself.

Elements lost in their world...we vent our passions.
We dance ethereal, the compass of the imagined.


Transcended and enlightened,
recreated on this journey
with beautiful letters of passionate words.
I found my way!
I found my truth!
I found the truth!

Genre: Progressive Metal
Lenght: 5:51
Writters: Bill Owens



About:

Let Me Fly has a lot of orchestral and symphonic elements mixed with high-tone guitar riffs. The song features a lot of piano melodies which is not very normal for the band, in the other tracks the guitars enjoy the leading role but in this song, the keyboards are the protagonist. This track is full of emotion, highly-influenced by progressive rock and symphonic music.

"This song's really emotional and deep, in it we mix modern-guitar-sound with classical and symphonic elements. 'LMF' is very different from our other tracks, a lot more melodic with a great primacy of keyboards, I would describe it as a mixing of classic heavy metal with orchestral melodies and progressive rock. It has a happier feeling than our other efforts. The lyrics are about someone who wants and desires to die, to be free...It maybe looks like as a terrible and sad message but the protagonist of this story considers death as the way to be free, to set free his soul and reunite with someone special."



Lyrics:

In the night I feel the cold of my loneliness,
cold that embraces my heart .
Draining my strength to fight,
only to breathe this suffering...

Tell me why?
Why must I bear this cross,
so heavy for my soul?
Please hold me in your love .

I am the keeper of his heart .
I was sent to take care of his sweetness.
Never I'll forget his love.
Never I'll forget the light .
That shone in his eyes.

Let me fly, let me be free ,
to stay with him beyond this life .
Run across the sky.
Let me see the sun again...

Let me die !
Give me the light!
I'm waiting for death to knock on my door to,
release my pain .
My sadness every night...


Every day I dream of sunlight in my dark room,
I want to find a reason why ,
justify my reason to stay alive
within this pain.

Let me die!
Give me the light!
I'm waiting for death to knock on my door,
to release my pain .
My sadness in the night.


Tell me why?
Why must I bear this cross,
so heavy for my soul?
Please hold me in your love.

Let me die !
Give me the light!
I'm waiting for death to knock on my door,
to release my pain .
My sadness in the night, forevermore...

Genre: Progressive Metal / Sludge Metal
Lenght: 5:19
Writters: Bill Owens, Mike Rudess & Jordan Levin



About:

Zlord is the only collaboration among 3 members of the band: Bill, Mike and Jordan. Mike have written this lyrics a long time ago, they were thought for another project but he showed them to the other members of Aeons and they really liked them. Then, Bill and Mike start composing the music for this futuristic-based progressive metal song and became one of the most elaborated tracks on the album. With tons of samples, synths and keyboards, the band members achieved a very futuristic and sci-fi atmosphere for the song.

"Well this is one of the strangest songs on the record, a very sci-fi adventure through an unknown place called Zlord. Mike wrote the lyrics and I really liked them, I'm a fan of sci-fi movies so I wanted this song on the album...We tried to make a futuristic sound for this tune, with a lot of keyboards and guitar and bass synths, and spectral and robotic voices. It's also a very heavy song, we put very heavy riffs on it, it remembers to Thrash metal sound mixed with futuristic keyboards. I think it ended being a cool mixing, a strange but really good song...I consider it like a prequel of 'Beyond Space And Time' which has the same 'sci-fi feeling' on it."



Lyrics:

In a distant place called Zlord,
all the villagers were waiting for it,
with tears of anguish in their eyes.


All the time they pray to God,
winds of freedom blow in our lives,
to set us free from this agony.


Please, don't allow that fate to forge your life,
you forge your own destiny.
Let your feelings be free, your heart is your guide,
be so strong and get ready, for tomorrow.
Don't fear the future that comes.

Between wars and firestorms,
rains of arrows and screams of desperation,
they live with hope that fills their hearts.


The new king proclaimed peace for all,
under new laws sent from eternal heaven,
with happiness and joy for all.


Please, don't allow that fate to forge your life,
you forge your own destiny.
Let your feelings be free, your heart is your guide,
be so strong and get ready, for tomorrow.
Carry on, the future is now!

All this turned people back into slaves facing new laws...
Storm of the past!

All this turned people back into slaves facing new laws...
The laws of the future!

Writters: Bill Owens



About:

Beyond Space And Time is the grand finale, the end of the journey. An 'epic space opera', as its described by band members, this 7-minute-long tune rises as one of the most heavy and dark efforts on the record, with leading growl vocals and very distorted and deep guitar sound. The song has a strong sci-fi atmosphere with a lot of space-sounds samples and spectral voices.

"Hell yeaaaaah! We've reached the end of the journey! Our grand finale is here, another ambitious and complex composition, very dark and heavy, with a lot of extreme and doom metal influences. The vocal work for this tune was really difficult, we used a lot of growl and very deep vocals but high-tone clean vocals too, it was a nightmare to record it...You can hear a lot of rythm-changes and dissonant melodies. Austin used a lot of blast-beats but also some slow and jazz-influenced beats, this is a completely progressive rock opera, with growl voices! The lyrics are a bit abstract, they're about space but I can't explain more...It's about someone or something that's travelling through space, there's no other explanation, I like that, being abstract!"



Lyrics:

During centuries, and beyond creation,
they live on the deep space,
without conflict, in brotherhood.
Constellations are a good example,
of how humanity should live.
Formed by fragments,
forming a pure unity.

I'm living my dreams on a far away place,
with a lot of light I get to see
the universe shinning.

Within my own star I'm secure and protected,
here nothing can harm me.
I could live into the stars,
living my dreams, when universe is shinning.

Just like ethereal breeze,
I see time passing by.
Gaze at the universe and I behold,
what no one else could see before.
As a gentle breeze time moves on my life.


Asteroid rain, is fury.
Power sets off and brakes with all its fury.
Asteroid Rain is energy.
No one can control nor predict its character.
Not everything is peaceful and quiet,
spills its power within a far away galaxy.
Asteroid Rain, its savage
and once free it will get to its end,
when the space claims for it.


Beyond space and life, there's light of life.
Beyond space and time, there're feelings.
Feelings are part of my life.
And through everything there,
will always be hope!
Time has no space, time has no space...

Beyond space and time, there's eternal night.
Beyond space and life, into the void we stand.
Stellar darkness is my guide.
But at the end of the dark,
will always be light!
Time has no space, time has no space...
Time waits for no man, time waits for no being...

Koda: Dudes, can we just take a minute to let this all soak in? ... Seriously boys, this is a truly refreshing record to hear. There's not a weak track on the album and more than that, it's completely unique in the sense that you don't sound like anything else out there, which doesn't happen very much these days. Where to begin, I think this record is tens across the board, from all aspects and it's a great way to start the year. "Walk Your Way" may very well become an all time favourite song of mine as well as the collaboration with Lily, it's only January but I think we may have found the album of 2015. Now I'm just awaiting tour dates, I gotta see these songs performed live! Bring it on home, boys!
