Aphelion was founded in 2004 from the ashes of Mandylion. The band released two demos as Mandylion and after a few member changes the band decided to start fresh in 2004 under the name Aphelion. The last Mandylion demo was awarded Demo of the month in Metal Hammer and the band has re-recorded 3 of the demo tracks for the forthcoming debut album. The album will contain ten songs and is expected to be released in early 2005. Todays members have previously been involved in bands like Old man`s child, Rotting christ, Peccatum and Sacralis. In 2004 the band has played several concerts in Norway and Germany. Aphelion play atmospheric groove metal with influences from bands like Tool, Seigmen, Opeth, Pink Floyd and My Dying Bride.
