yon were originally formed in East German city Dresden in 2014. Since then, the band has released several EPs. Today, all of the members have left their domicile in Dresden. Despite that process of coming of age, yon's rehearsal room is still there - and the band still exists. And to prove that, yon are starting off the year 2021 with their first long-player "Order of Violence".

The music on "Order of Violence" is great combination of melancholy, soulfulness and brachiality. Cold storms of Post Metal and Post Rock clash with the chequered and rough tides of Post Hardcore and Screamo. The album by yon is the powerful voice of resistance of those who are fed up with the status quo but still have a heart. Thus, the sounds musick both hope and desparation.

"Order of Violence" could be the bastard child of Egozid, Patrick F. Patrick, Noorvik and Tesa. yon's album feels like the soothing heat of a molotov cocktail in a frozen street. This is gorgeous emotional, intense and ice-cold music.
