AEON announces Schecter endorsement
- August 5th, 2013 –
On tour now as part of The Summer Slaughter Tour
Sweden’s Aeon have announced that they are now officially part of the Schecter Guitars roster of artists! The band is currently playing their Schecter guitars live as they tour the US as part of The Summer Slaughter Tour 2013 with The Dillinger Escape Plan, Animals As Leaders, Cattle Decapitation and more. The remaining shows are below, as well as listed on the band’s official website, aeon666.com.
Aeon guitarist Daniel Dlimi comments: “After being a Schecter ambassador in Sweden for years, it feels really great to finally be a part of the Schecter artist roster. I have always thought that Schecter builds great and very valuable instruments and that they are always delivered with a great setup and action. Both me and Zeb are using the models C-7 Hellraiser or C-7 Blackjack ATX and Tony now plays C-4 Hellraiser bass guitars.
“A very big thanks to Schecter for providing us with great support for the Summer Slaughter tour that we are currently on.”
Fans can also see these guitars in action on the performance demonstration video for “Still They Pray” from their latest album, Aeons Black. The video is available now at metalblade.com/aeon.

Recorded at Empire Studio in Östersund, Sweden, engineered, mixed and mastered by Ronnie Björnström at Garageland Studios, Aeons Black has been reaping praise from critics domestically and abroad. Revolver Magazine calls Aeons Black “one of the best death metal albums of 2012,” The Metal Review dubs it the band’s “heaviest and most brutal album to date,” All Music Guide commends AEON‘s fiery brand of “…punishing, blood-curdling, Christ-baiting death metal…” while About.com crowns it, “a ferocious beast and is a thoroughly awesome death metal album.” The Metal Observer tags the 50-minute long monster, “a masterpiece of goddamned death metal,” while Infernal Masquerade adds, “if you are in the market for some crushing neck-breaking death metal, this is one release you don’t want to miss. AEON is at the top of their game and they have more than proved it on Aeons Black.”
