Finnish fellow Jori Hautala and his friend from Bulgaria, Georgi Georgiev, teamed up in July of 2013 with the intention of creating Death Metal with some elements from both Black and Doom Metal. The guys' musical creation was a band called Aeonless. The duo's debut album, titled Underearth Horizons, was released at the beginning of 2014.
There you have it; a short history lesson about Aeonless. These lads' self-titled follow-up contains 10 songs of Finnish-sung Death Metal. Jori's half-growled Death Metal parts along with sort of Swedish, downtuned Death Metal riffage isn't bad but it does not have a badass effect either, which I was expecting to hear on this album. What this album mostly suffers from is definitely a coherent feel to really dig into my skin. Also, Jori's half-Black Metal and half-Death Metal vocals really don't scare me enough as the extreme vocal style should ultimately do.
However, to their credit, they handle all the instruments, excluding the programmed drums that also sound irritatingly sloppy, amateur, and even impotent from time to time. A real drummer (or real drum parts at least) might undoubtedly do a little miracle in the future.
Unfortunately, Aeonless have still a long way to go if they want to kick our extreme Metal fans' butts seriously enough.
