Aiden Nightmare Anatomy on LP
Aiden began quite humbly in Seattle circa 2003, as many greats do: spawned from the deceptively charmed facade of a suburban adolescence gone awry. In their early days, the band was young and frantic, but eager and driven. Aiden had to sell off their personal belongings to fund their first release Our Gangs Dark Oath. So determined to persevere, some teenaged band members even finished high school in a van on the road. Aiden's focus and energy caught the attention of Victory Records who signed the band for the release of their second album Nightmare Anatomy (2005). The record awoke the punk underground and broke records as Victory's highest selling debut album. They rallied every kind of listener from punk to goth to rock to metal; Aiden was the new band on the scene and everyone took notice. They also won awards for Best Newcomer and Best International Newcomer in 2006 from Metal Hammer and Kerrang! magazines, respectfully.
