Aonia are an operatic/progressive metal band, wielding dual soprano vocalists, shredding guitars, searing keys, and driving drums and bass. Renowned for their unique live show, Aonia have wowed audiences across the UK and abroad, in addition to organising their own events and all-day festivals.
In October of 2018, Aonia's debut album, 'The Seven' was released to critical acclaim. Clocking in at 63 minutes, the album boasts 10 tracks of bombastic heavy metal and features guest artists Blaze Bayley (Blaze Bayley, Wolfsbane, Ex-Iron Maiden) and Iliana Basileios Tsakiraki (Enemy of Reality) as special guests.
As Sheffield's Bloodstock Metal to the Masses winners, Aonia played the New Blood Stage at the 2018 Bloodstock Festival. The band have also played Dames of Darkness, SOS Fest and Warhorns Festival and have supported musical acts such as Blaze Bayley, Leaves' Eyes, Xandria, and Kobra and the Lotus. They also completed a short tour of France, Belgium and The Netherlands with Alwaid (F).
Currently, Aonia are writing Album #2, further honing their storytelling and songwriting skills, and consistently adding new elements to their stage show.
