History

Not to be confused with the other Apeiron’s taking care of monkey creases in South America, this Italian melodic speed metal band was formed in Lombary, Italy in 1996. The Endternity demo came in 2002 while The Cruel Crimes EP appeared in 2008. The group featured Claudio Passeri of Gory Blister earlier. Apeiron signed a contract with Last Scream Records for the release of the its full-length, Among The Lost. The album, mixed by Simone Mularoni at Fear Studio (The Modern Age Slavery, Empyrios and Gory Blister), would contain ten tracks of technical death metal. The release was scheduled for 2010.

Reviews

APEIRON - THE CRUEL CRIME
This is the sophomore demo/EP from this Italian quartet formed back in 2001 and their first release since 2002’s Endternity. As in the debut this also contains four tracks. Musically this is melodic, somewhat technical and gloomy metal. Reminiscent of the likes of Insomnium, this is not really always death metal but certainly in the shade of their Nordic and Scandinavian colleagues. The musicianship is solid and the production befitting the style but neither is groundbreaking by any means. Song titles like Scavenging Thoughts, The Crossing, Clutches Of Despair and the ”˜bonus’ The Chant give a good indication of the direction of Apeiron as does the cover art which features a man covering his ears and seemingly screaming in agony. One suggestion to the band is to get rid of the out of place screams like the ones featured on Clutches Of Despair. Contact the band at info@apeironet.it. - Anna Tergel
