 Attle Petersen stood out; he has this raw element in his voice that somehow combines with his beautiful melodies that works really well (particularly in "Downfall).

I received the CD in the mail today and put in on while I was working in the shop.  I had to stop working and sit down and really listen to; it is that good. 
My impressions:

Thanks so much!

In other news, we've just released a clip of some brand new Aeon Zen music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8GZ9wKJDzjk

It's currently instrumental, but will feature vocals on the final version. What do you guys think so far?

We've got some really cool news in the Aeon Zen camp today. We've just started a competition to win things like guitar pickups, big guitar discounts, free mixing and mastering, guest solos, copies of our album, guitar picks... You get the idea!

Without getting too "spammy", please take a look and share it with whomever you feel might be interested!

Here's a youtube video with all the info: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ji_LW1qVhfo

Thanks everyone, and good to anyone that gives it a go!

NEW AEON ZEN VIDEO for "Inveritas (Featuring Vadim Pruzhanov from DragonForce)":
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L8viTRXwi0Q

UK Progressive Metal band AEON ZEN will release their fifth studio album, 'INVERITAS', on May 10. The follow-up to 2014's 'Ephemera' will be available in digipack, digital download, and producer pack versions. Pre-orders will go live on April 8th.

"This is the first AEON ZEN album to be written collectively by all band members and it really is the next logical step on our journey, something that fans have been consistently asking for," says AEON ZEN founder Rich Hinks. "It captures all sides of our personalities and it's an album of intense meaning for all of us, exploring our passions and views on the darker and lighter side of life. It's also the first AEON ZEN album we've released since I joined Annihilator in 2015, so we're even more excited for the release."

Merging modern metal with complex song structures and a broad range of styles, 'INVERITAS' contains just as many hooks as it is complex, with songwriting always being at the forefront. Also featured are the talents of Vadim Pruzhanov from DragonForce on the album’s title track, showing how different points of view and diverse musical opinions can be used to make Aeon Zen’s strongest statement to date.

Hinks continues, "I think all fans of melodic, heavy, technical and progressive metal can find something to love in 'INVERITAS'".

'INVERITAS' track listing: 

1. Rebel Theory 
2. The First And Only Line 
3. Another Piece That Fits 
4. The Last Alive 
5. The Treachery of Images 
6. Disconnected 
7. The World Without Sky 
8. Inveritas (Featuring Vadim Pruzhanov from DragonForce)

Cool... will definitely check out.  I liked their first two.  Enigma was ok; Ephemera was kinda forgettable - to the point I thought they only had 3 albums.

I find it interesting that they still list him as 'from Dragonforce' despite Vadim leaving the band last May.
