“Aonia” is the place near Helicon mountain where the muses dwell. While this image sounds serene, the band’s sound is the polar opposite. Driving, almost thrashy riffs juxtapose against melodic, almost operatic vocals from ‘a soprano with balls’ for a sound that is a blending of the very old and the very new, tempered steel in a velvet glove.
Building on their successes as Bloodstock Metal to the Masses finalists, Aonia are currently gigging regularly, securing support slots at more well-known venues (e.g. Corporation in Sheffield) and in more high profile festivals (e.g. ‘Martin Walkyier’s Viking Funeral’ ‘Whitby Goth Weekend’ and ‘Warhorns Winter Festival’).
