AENAON shares Psyche-guitar playthrough video

Watch Achilleas C. of Hellenic prog/black experimentalists AENAON run through the song „Psyche“ on guitar. The song is lifted from AENAON‚ fourth studio album, „Mnemosyne“, which is out now on Agonia Records: AENAON – Psyche (Official Guitar Playthrough) – YouTube

Hailed as an album of heavily textured black metal, „Mnemosyne“ offers nine new songs, recorded, mixed and mastered by guitarist/bassist Achilleas C. (Varathron, Katavasia) at Suncord Audiolab in Ioannina, Greece. The painting that adorns the cover was created by Ben Howe while prepared the layout.

Apart from mastermind Achilleas C, the line-up comprises drummer Haris (Varathron), vocalist Astrous (Katavasia) and saxophonist Orestis Zyrinis. Clean vocals on „Synastry of Heartbeats“, „Trauma Cultura“ and „Mantledeath“ were guest performed by Frédéric Gervais (Orakle / Cor Serpentii).

„Six years have passed  since our last album and we are thrilled to finally share our darkest effort so far,“ comments AENAON. „As always, we have been silent but creatively restless, aiming to a timeless creation. Mnemosyne is an album of noir aesthetics and emotional extremity. The title derives from the Greek goddess of remembrance and the river of memory.“

The name AENAON means „the Eternal“ in Greek. The band’s history dates back to 2006 and encompasses (on top of several smaller releases) four studio albums: „Cendres et Sang“ (2011), „Extance“ (2014), „Hypnosophy“ (2016) and „Mnemosyne“ (2022).
