Iceni Discography

“We can all of us be gods, do what thou wilt. The power to, lies within... The forces of light and dark, can be wielded... Those whom dwell in the light, and blind to the beauty in darkness”
— From the song, "Disciples Fall... As Gods We Reign"

An exciting bit of news… A little outside of out usual repertoire, but AEPL has recently released all three Iceni records in collaboration with the now defunct (But still living in spirit) Monolithic Records... 

Dating back to 2005 and a bit of a trip down memory lane here as Iceni was the first band our Founder/CEO Michael W. Bell performed in many years ago at a time when music performance was a very new thing to him.

Iceni played raw heavy metal (black metal if you like) using old English themes as inspiration. Go check them out on all major digital distribution networks now!

Michael W. Bell

Mike was born in South East London in 1988 but moved to Brighton during his early teens where he spent most of his time collecting music and performing rhythm guitar in a local heavy metal band. He later studied both Music Production and Composition for Film & Media at the University of Brighton where he found a passion for working sonically within the visual arts. Now based in London, Mike works as a film composer and sound designer providing bespoke music and sound for any media project you can throw at him through his own production company Aurora Eclipse Productions. Mike’s journey into music composition and production began while studying Music Production when he was commissioned for the first time to compose original music for “Francis” (2011), a short horror film. This was the first time he had approached writing music for an orchestra and fell in love with the whole process. During this time Mike also found himself in the studio, where he successfully produced “Hatriotism”, an EP for Demental, a Brighton (UK) based metal band. While finishing his degree in 2012, Mike was asked to compose a dark ambient orchestral soundscape for the US based band Shores of Acheron. This soundscape is featured on their newly released EP “End of Reign” as well as serving as an opener to the band’s live performance. It was also during this time that he formed his own sonic production company, Aurora Eclipse Productions. Mike has just finished working on the short animation “Æ Har Det Bare Bra” (2013) in which he provided sound design and engineered the sonic environment of the film. Currently, Mike is working with Personatones Ltd. to provide original music and sound for smartphones with his first Personatone 'Cinematic Majesty" due out next week; he is also composing music for the upcoming documentary film "Night Owls" from director Roy Petersen. Mike’s music may be described as dark, haunting, dramatic, atmospheric, orchestral, minimalist, cinematic, modern and textural. Description
