AVELION – Italian progressive metallers share new single “Alone in Time”


Today AVELION release the video for their new single “Alone in Time”, watch it HERE!

The flagbearers of modern Italian progressive metal, AVELION, have been churning out bombastic singles for more than a decade, dropping a string of releases that have been helping shape the genre.

“After the release of our latest single ‘Bound To Blackness’ (June 2022), we consolidated the work done with Rick, our new singer, and this led to the completion of nine new songs.
It has been a long journey, in which we worked a lot, with a very high level of care, not worrying about the modern trend of prioritising quantity over quality. Releasing a new track just to ‘trigger the algorithm’ is not among our priorities. And our producer Simone Mularoni knows this well, as he guided us through the several production phases of the song: some of them were absolutely crazy! Thanks Simo!
This time the so called icing on the cake is the mastering, handled by Tony Lindgren at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden.
‘Alone In Time’ is a catchy yet multilayered song which shows all the key characteristics of the ‘Avelion sound’.
The concept of the song is the cyclical nature of Time, creator of infinite possibilities and at the same time destroyer of everything.
An infinite loop, like Nietzsche’s Eternal Return, which becomes geometric surrealism, just like the ‘Möbius Strip’ so dear to David Lynch.
We want to take this opportunity to thank all our fans for their patience and support, we really can’t wait for you to hear everything we’ve been working on!
New songs and new concerts are coming in the next few months… so stay tuned!”.

Each AVELION release expands and clarifies the band’s mission to bring forth the most dynamic sonic offerings. Marrying progressive and modern metal influences, AVELION approach each song as a unique opportunity to destroy and rebuild the listener’s perception.

AVELION have developed a gloriously turbulent sound that is uniquely their own. Hailing from Parma, Italy, the band have been tearing venues apart across Europe with their powerful fusion of genres since 2008.
In 2011 AVELION released the first studio work: the EP “Cold Embrace”. The following year the band started an intense live activity, leading to the great opportunity to play as opening act for Seventh Wonder (with Tommy Karevik, Kamelot).
In 2012 the band released the promotional single “Falling Down” which sees the collaboration with guitarist Olaf Thorsen (Labyrinth, Vision Divine)
AVELION‘s second EP, “Liquid Breathing”, was published in 2013. The EP delivers a more personal, modern and mature sound: melodic progressive metal mixed with djent influences, all combined with a strong electronic flavour.
In 2015 the band entered Simone Mularoni’s Domination Studio (DGM) to record their first full length album: “Illusion of Transparency”, which was released via Revalve Records in 2017.
In March 2018 AVELION supported the legendary ANGRA in Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Spain and Portugal. The dates also featured Geoff Tate’s Operation: Mindcrime as special guest.
In May 2018 the band released the single “Echoes and Fragments” REMIX featuring the Electro Metal artist The Algorithm.
Following a widespread approval from both critics and fans, the band kept playing live opening for Primal Fear, Lacuna Coil and Kiko Loureiro.
At the end of 2019 the band parted ways with the frontman William Verderi. Following the split, AVELION started composing new songs for their next musical chapters along with new vocalist Riccardo Rizzardelli. The first single from the revitalised line-up, “Bound to Blackness”, was released in June 2022.
