The band was founded in Parma (Italy) in 2008 and, after some line-up adjustements, in 2011 released their first studio work: the EP "Cold Embrace".

Following the widespread approval from the critics and the fans, the following year AVELION started an incessant Live activity, also having the great opportunity to play as opening act for Seventh Wonder (with Tommy Karevik, Kamelot), while at the same time a strong and ever-growing fanbase has developed worldwide. In 2012 the band also released the promotional single "Falling Down" which sees the collaboration with guitarist Olaf Thorsen (Labyrinth, Vision Divine). AVELION's second EP, "Liquid Breathing", was published in November 2013, followed by a mini-tour in Austria, Czech Republic and Slovakia.

The EP delivers a more personal, modern and mature sound: here we can find, in fact, a Melodic Progressive Metal mixed with Djent influences, all combined with a strong Electronic personality. In 2015, with Oreste Giacomini and William Verderi as masterminds and main composers, the band entered Domination Studio of Simone Mularoni (DGM) to record their first full length album: “Illusion Of Transparency”. “Illusion Of Transparency” will be released on April 7th, 2017 via Revalve Records. In March 2018 AVELION will be on Tour supporting the legendary ANGRA in 9 shows between Belgium, Netherlands, France, Spain and Portugal! The dates will also feature Geoff Tate (Official) Operation: Mindcrime as special guest and the band Halcyon Way! The band says: "We are honored to share the stage with such great bands and we are excited to bring "Illusion of Transparency" across Europe!" In May 2018 the band released the single "Echoes and Fragments" REMIX featuring the Electro Metal artist The Algorithm In July 2018 AVELION will play as opening act for the mighty Primal Fear at Luppolo in Rock Festival. On September 5, 2018 AVELION will play as opening act for Lacuna Coil at Festareggio! On February 12 2019, AVELION will play as opening act for Kiko Loureiro!.

MELODIC, PROGRESSIVE, MODERN: AVELION aims to overpower genre classification thereby creating a new form: Modern Metal mixed with Progressive influences and Melody becomes momentum and expression as a whole which reaches the listener directly.
