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.

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.
