1.Element 24
2.High Trip King
4.With That Priest On The Back Seat
5.Noises From Aeon


Time for some good old fashioned Stoner Rock where the grooves and riffs are matched by some great hard-rocking vocals. Deep Aeon may not sound the most original of Stoner Rock bands but that doesn't stop them being an exciting band to spend 30 mins of your day with. As their debut album - Temple Of Time - is a thrilling and action packed ride from start to finish.

Deep Aeon get straight down to business with the heavy blues/stoner rock track - Element 24 - that sees the band in full confident mood with a great outlook on all things Stoner Rock. It's also good that the band have written great and often humorous lyrics to match the music that will leave you with a warm fuzzy feeling inside. If you're a fan of Old-School Desert Rock/Stoner/Fuzz Rock then Deep Aeons is the band for you and you can hear various nods to Kyuss, Truckfighters and Fu Manchu. It may take time to get used to the vocals but you can't deny what a great singer he actually is.

Second track - High Trip King – offers more of the same good time high energy vibes of the opening track though with Deep Aeon bringing a slice of psychedelic rock to the action. Deep Aeon know what needs to be done to entertain the heck out of you. This is good old fashioned Stoner Rock that's made for one thing. Mainly to get you into the mood to rock out and they succeed on all levels. The instrumental work is superb through out as the band have a keen talent for writing impressive riffs.

The rest of the album follows the same template as the opening two tracks and that's a good thing. You can enjoy the rest of the ride as Deep Aeon have a few more great tunes for you to check out - Floating, Noises From Aeon and the last epic track - River. River is possibly the standout track of the whole album as the band decide to let fly with heavy fuzz/blues/stoner rock mayhem to end the album on a loud finish. This album may not be high on originality but it's still a great album for you to check out.

Shame there isn't a couple of more songs on the 'album as it could have done with a couple of mores to expand Deep Aeon's sound. Other than that give this album a spin and you will be rewarded with 30 minutes of top class vintage stoner rock music. Excellent and Highly Recommended.

Thanks to H42 Records/Shithead Records for the promo. Temple of Time will be released on CD/DD/Vinyl from Shithead Records/H42 Records on April 04th 2015.
