Aegonia


Aegonia

Touchingly dreamy yearning

The great fascination for folklore and its authentic implementation determines the musical and lyric fortunes of these Bulgarian nature lovers since the band was founded in 2011. 
In the Rhodopes, the magnificently wooded, majestically towering mountains in South Bulgaria, the stylishly traditional AEGONIA feel most comfortable.

The seductively melodic and enormously atmospheric sound of these expressive aesthetes is based on exquisite ingredients from Doom, Gothic and Fantasy Metal. 

Most aptly, the quartet’s music is described as ATMOSPHERIC FOLKLORE METAL.

With “The Forgotten Song” AEGONIA release their deeply touching debut album, which goes extraordinary quickly into the ear.

A noble concept-work that is based on the eponymous fantasy novel by Nea Stand, the first book in the series “Tales From The Lands Of Aegonia”.

The song “Samodiva” features a sequel to the story told in “The Maid And The Mountain”.

The accompanying music video was shot at the scenic Krushuna Falls in the summer of 2018.
