The year 2008 started aeon of the black sun when the founder and sole member Tuomas Saukkonen decided to start a solo career on the side, while also continuing on in his main bands Before The Dawn and The Final Harvest. The debut album “The Darkness Walks Beside Me” followed soon in the beginning of 2009 and was praised by critics and fans for majestic, melodic doom metal with a death metal twist.

Few very carefully selected gigs were also played with session members and Black Sun Aeon shared the stage with bands like Samael, presenting a powerful festival debut at Summer Breeze festivals. What many thought to be a simple side project and one time release has become a solid one man band and the sharpest blade in the musical armory of Tuomas Saukkonen.

The cruel winter in Finland 2009 gave great inspiration to create a theme album of that cold and dark season that in many ways defines Finnish people. Subject so grand demanded a double album that was released in early spring 2010. Praised by the critics and loved by the fans, the album went straight into top-10 of official Finnish album chart and also reached 3# position in both “album of the year” and “best cover art” at Finnish Metal Awards, while the leader himself took the 1# position in the “musician of the year” category.

In the summer of 2011 it was time to get back to the writing board and a new album started to take shape. More varied than the past 2 albums, featuring both female and male clean vocals in a bigger role than before while still keeping the growling as the dominant voice. Also, after the nature inspired theme album, it was time to dive into some deeper and darker waters and as a result, “Blacklight Deliverance” is the most personal album of the creator, including all his past work with Before The Dawn, The Final Harvest, Dawn Of Solace and RoutaSielu. The deepest darkness always lies inside our souls! « hide
