AEON ZEN to release EPHEMERA: GAME OF THE YEAR EDITION 

‘Ephemera: GAME OF THE YEAR Edition’ will be released on 9th February 2018. It combines AEON ZEN’s 2014 modern progressive metal concept album ‘Ephemera’ with the ‘Ephemera Audiobook’ into one seamless experience. 

The ‘Ephemera Audiobook’, comprising four chapters of a story expanding upon and extending the storyline of the concept album, was originally only available as a pre-order bonus for the ‘Ephemera’ album. With this new release, Aeon Zen are making the audiobook universally available, in an even better form. The tracks of ‘Ephemera’ and its audiobook counterpart are now woven together, rather than being separate entities, to create a flowing, movie-like experience for the listener. 

Formed in 2008 around founding member, composer and multi-instrumentalist Rich Hinks, Aeon Zen released their debut album, ‘A Mind’s Portrait’, in 2009, quickly followed up by 2010’s ‘The Face of The Unknown’. 2013 saw the release of the band’s third album, ‘Enigma’. A departure from previous records, this concept album displayed a band continuing to grow and mature musically while building a solid and increasing fanbase. In 2014, Aeon Zen released their fourth album, ‘Ephemera’, to critical acclaim, showing how the band can weave complex musicality and storytelling as they venture into an apocalyptic world, constantly keeping the listener on their toes. 

Now, in 2018, Aeon Zen are pleased to complete the ‘Ephemera’ cycle with the ‘Ephemera: GAME OF THE YEAR Edition’, out on 9th February 2018.

New Album Progress 

It's been a while since we did a proper update on our website, so here goes!

We're in full swing with writing and recording the 5th Aeon Zen album. In fact, the majority of writing is done, there's just some vocals left and the entire thing will be written. We've also recorded a large amount of the album too. We finished drum recordings over the past weekend and it's sounding pretty damn huge so far!


This album is going to be by far the most collaborative Aeon Zen effort to date (not really such a difficult milestone to break considering I did the majority of the others single-handedly, but there you go!) and it's proving to be a very interesting process working that way compared to previous albums. So rest assured, we're still hard at work, the album is coming, and we can't wait for you all to hear it!

Aeon Zen release new single: Disconnected 


AEON ZEN have released a brand new single, entitled Disconnected, for free or pay what you want download.

Disconnected is a landmark for AEON ZEN, it was written and recorded in just 2 days and displays a spontaneous, exposed, and virtuosic side that not many bands dare to show. Having been written during a live stream with input from fans, AEON ZEN's Disconnected shows a band that embrace social media to create a truly original experience.

The band had this to say about Disconnected:
"Creating Disconnected in the way that we did, through a live stream, enabled us to show our fans how we write and record, essentially doing the opposite of the track name and connecting us to music lovers. We really put ourselves out there for everyone to see with creating Disconnected, this is the first track we've written together as a band 100% collaboratively and we can't wait for you all to hear the result! We would really appreciate any 'pay what you want' amount you'd like to give for the song, to help us keep putting on great events and keep the music flowing!"
