Emil Wiksten is from now on the permanent drummer of Aeon

Photo by: Philip Lee VidamourAs we stated a couple of weeks ago, Arttu Malkki decided to take a longer break from the band to focus on his family and their newborn twins. Emil Wiksten (Blood Red Throne) stepped in as temporary replacement for him and did his first stage appearance with us during our recently finished UK/IRE headline tour. Besides being a real nice and easy dude, Emil delivered a killer performance each night and he shows a great deal of passion for his drumming. And with our recently released album Aeons Black,  there is a lot of good things coming our way and we felt that we needed to have a solid lineup where everyone in the band is involved and has the same goal. Aeon really needs to be everyone’s top priority and you can’t obviously expect a temporary drummer to prioritize a band that he is not a member of, so therefor we gave Emil the opportunity to  fill the spot permanently which he gladly accepted.

So with this we would like to thank Arttu for his time in the band and we wishes him all the best with his new family. And now, lets raise the horns and welcome the mighty Emil Wiksten to the Aeon family as our new permanent drummer.

Arttu is taking a brake from Aeon. Stand-in drummer announced

Arttu has decided to take a brake from Aeon. He and his girlfriend are expecting twins in march and he wants to focus on his family at this point. We have no idea on how long this break will be, but there is no need to worry. We have an awesome drummer on our hands that will be replacing Arttu to 100%. This means that we will be touring as planned and take on more tours along the way. So please lets welcome the mighty Emil Wiksten as the current drummer of Aeon. His first stage appearance  with Aeon will be on January 16 in London @ Garage.

To have a sneak peak on his insane drumming, check out this drum cam video from one of our rehearsals the other day.
