The rumors are true: The last known line up of AEBA will play three exclusive shows in 2016. This is no reunion but a belated celebration of AEBAs 20th anniversary.
After the final gig AEBA stopped to exist on September 7th, 2013 at 5:55pm.
Influenced by the second wave of Black Metal AEBA was formed in 1992 under the name of Eternal Suffer. Two years later the band changed its name. AEBA is an acronym and stands for the names of the arch demons Astaroth, Eurynome, Bael and Amducias, four horsemen of the apocalypse, which allegorically stand for death, plague, hunger and war.
In 1995 AEBA recorded the well known demo tape “The Rising”. The sound was very raw and brutal and received a very high acknowledgement in the underground. The dark atmos- phere and the share of succinct melodies became the trademark of the band.
In 1997 AEBA entered the studio again to record a second demo called “Im Schattenreich”. The reactions were that euphoric in the press and the scene that Last Episode offered a lucrative deal. In 1998 the label re-released the second demo as the first full length album with a remastered sound. In the meantime AEBA spread its message through intense live gigs.
“Flammenmanifest” and “Rebellion – Edens Asche” followed 1999 and 2001. The albums showed a permanent musical progression and a high versatility which proved the artistic maturity of the group. In 2002 AEBA parted its ways with Last Episode and joined forces with Twilight-Distribution to release “Shemhamforash – Des Hasses Antlitz” in 2004 which was recorded in the band‘s own studio. After that release AEBA had the chance to tour foreign countries and to prove their ability on stage.
In 2006 it came to some musical changes: After the current keyboarder left, AEBA decided not to look for a new player. Instead they choose to focus more on the guitars and the aim was to create the same dark atmosphere in using the remaining instruments. With a new musical direction “Kodex V” was recorded again in the band‘s own studio and was released via Twilight in 2008. The reviews from the press and the reactions of the fans were very positive.
