Aeon Zen Posts New “Top 5 Riffs” Video Clip

English progressive-metallers Aeon Zen released their third opus “Enigma” to the word one week ago today. Today Aeon Zen is pleased to present the second in a series of “Top 5 Riffs” series. The second video in the series features vocalist Andi Kravljaca and his “Top 5 Vocal Riffs,” check it out below.

Andi commented on the video: “The vocals on any Aeon Zen record are always a cacophonous spectacle of layers, harmonies and characterizations done by some of the best voices in the business – and, of course, me. Nowhere is this more evident than in our latest offering – Enigma. Join me, if you will, in an exploration of the five places on Enigma where the vocals really make the album shine.”

The full “Enigma” album’s track listing is as follows:

1. Enter the Enigma
2. Artificial Soul
3. Divinity
4. Seven Hills
5. Warning
6. Turned to Ash

Aeon Zen Posts Video Of Top 5 Riffs From “Enigma”

Aeon Zen is back with the band’s latest opus entitled “Enigma,” due for release on January 22nd, 2013 on Nightmare Records. The album is available for pre-order here.

Today Aeon Zen has released a video of the top 5 guitar riffs from “Enigma.” The video has been premiered through GuitarWorld.com and can be seen right here or in the player below.

Front man Rich Hinks describes the video: “What better way to show everyone some pieces of our new album than for me to perform them for you? There are so many riffs on this album that I personally consider my favourite, so it was really difficult to just choose 5 (well… 10 if you put the instruments together!). These should give you a flavour of Aeon Zen and Enigma and hopefully inspire you listen to the whole album to hear these riffs in context.”

The album’s track listing is as follows:

1. Enter the Enigma
2. Artificial Soul
3. Divinity
4. Seven Hills
5. Warning
6. Turned to Ash
