Greek melodic death metal powerhouse AETHERIAN return with new single ‘Army of Gaia’ from forthcoming album “At Storm’s Edge”


Army of Gaia” is the first single to be released from the upcoming second full-length album “At Storm’s Edge” of the melodic death metallers AETHERIAN, which will be released on the 14th of July 2023 via Lifeforce Records. The song has a warlike atmosphere where people regardless of gender and race are called to rise and fight for mother Earth as a whole, against the opressive and destructive ruling class.

Recorded at Devasoundz studios and produced by Fotis Benardo (Nightfall, ex- Septic Flesh). The painting used for the artwork is called “Les Fleurs du Mal” created by the French artist Yoann Lossel, while the new logo of the band was made by Christophe Szpajdel and signifies the start of a new era for AETHERIAN. “Army of Gaia” is acompanied by a lyric video made by Manster Design.

“During the age of abundance and ambition, where disposability is the norm, their hysterical consumption overshadows our utterdestruction. From the fringes of society we shall rise, to bring about the downfall of their corruption.“

In melo-death circles, AETHERIAN‘s debut album, released at the end of 2017, is considered a surprise success. On the one hand, “The Untamed Wilderness” has attracted attention because hardly anyone had the Greeks on their radar. On the other hand, the quintet from Athens, active since 2013, has convinced with a sovereign debut that was equal to Nordic scene greats like INSOMNIUM, DARK TRANQUILLITY and OMNIUM GATHERUM.

The positive reception of their debut serves as an impetus for the southern European group to continue to improve and present an even stronger sophomore album. AETHERIAN do not rest on their laurels. No sooner said than done.

In 2016 they recorded a new single alongside a video clip called “The Rain” which drew attention and signified
the beginning of their journey. ”The Rain” made a huge impact in a very short time on social media and the underground scene, currently reaching 3.5 million views on YouTube.

Listening to “At Storm’s Edge”, one notices several things: the musicians individually act both more precisely and more playfully. At the same time, the group play sounds even more exciting and distinctive. Especially the majestic melodic guitar leads, the driving drumming and the throaty growls stand out.

In the compositional area AETHERIAN apply their storyteller approach variable and song-serving. Despite considerable playing times, the album’s eight tracks come across as focused and urgent. Acoustic accents and a fine feeling for special atmospheres additionally distinguish the playing of the five Greeks.

The second full length of the band from Athens is called “At Storm’s Edge” and was recorded at Devasoundz studios and produced by Fotis Benardo (Nightfall, ex- Septic Flesh). AETHERIAN are not content with a spectator role on the sidelines, but pushes forward into the center in every respect and goes into full swing. Melo-Death fans beware – don’t be caught off guard again!
