AION was founded in MMXIII by M.V., as a means to give sonic shape to mental and physical limit experiences. The first opus, “Verses of Perdition”, contains five tracks which represent five phases of a journey to the spiritual desert – a pathway to perdition, to the fathomless chasm, the radiant night of unexistence.
The music shall stand as a symbol for its grey shores, the realm of one’s own dying – illimitable and infinite.
“Verses of Perdition” reached its final manifestation with the contributions of Asknt (drums) and Ishk (voice)
supported by 17 fans who also own “Verses of Perdition”
Why do people like this music? Because they hate how it carries them away? How it transfers sound into inner peace? How it is right on, as a combination of all right sounds and tempo; like a violent peace that it is?
I just don’t know. FakeFur777

This is one of the best metal albums I’ve heard. There’s so much here that you can get lost, which isn’t a bad thing. The drum performance is varied and brilliant, standing out just a bit ahead of other elements. Not by much though. A fantastically strong vocal performance also. Brian3737
A corrosive mix of death, doom, psychedelia, and black metal, the Portland quartet’s debut full-length is a bona fide underground monolith that shapeshifts with each listen, all while maintaining its essential heaviness. Bandcamp Album of the Day Feb 1, 2019
