It's time to get crazy up in heeeuhh! We're now taking preorders for the long awaited debut full length by Los Angeles, CA's Aeges, entitled The Bridge. 10 tracks in 40 minutes of pure aural ecstasy. We've been listening to this one for a while now.... EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. There's just no getting tired of these songs! This is one of those special records that you carry with you for years. The kind of album that reminds you of a time period in your life. A special record. For those of you that yet to look into this band, they're made up of members from Pelican, The Rise, Shift, Undertow, 16, etc. They play a style of music that harkens back to the best things the 90's had to offer, and god DAMN can they write a song. But don't take our word for it, you can actually head over to Brooklyn Vegan and download Wrong, the lead track from the album, for free right HERE. Do we sound excited? Guess what? We are!!!! OK, shhhh... now lets watch a video for Wrong:

"feels like a salvo of rabies injections to the gut..." - Alternative Press
"dedicated to contolled feedback, big, gritty melodies and that still so addictive guitar tone..." - Decibel Magazine
"Metal for the recessionista generation, Ęges will appeal to a wide swath of those fans that swing between Torche and Sparta..." - Exclaim!
"The record mines metal and hardcore in many of the same ways that Quicksand or Betty-era Helmet did in the 90s and Cave In or its contemporaries have in latter years; melodic vocals top thundering guitar riffs..." - Brooklyn Vegan
"Thick guitar and bass distortions create a dense framework of melodic structures that leave new layers to be discovered with each listen..." - Blow The Scene
