Aletheian picture
Aletheian biography
Taking a rather unique approach to the concept of death metal, Pennsylvania's Aletheian use their extremely technical guitar harmony based style not to create dark music, but rather to spread their messages of hope and faith. Originally formed in 1997 under the name Crutch, their christian lyrical themes and progressive style of melodic death metal (citing bands such as Dream Theater, Fates Warning, Meshuggah, Extol and Cynic as influences, to name but a few) was firmly established on the group's independantly released 2001 debut album "...Hope Prevails". Though it was picked up by Burning Records in 2002, the departure of two band members led to the band changing their name to Aletheian in 2003. Their conceptual Sophmore effort Apolutrosis was released under that name in 2003 and Dying Vine follwed in 2005.

Review by Yontar

5 stars I know i am expert on these guys so i will post the first review.

I have seen this band probably over 10 times live and have requested to possibly join the group on bass someday. Really cool guys, great musicians, and an underground gem of an album .

Many people would lump this more onto the metal side of things but prog is a very obvious influence and the band death as well . The band switches between heavy brutal death metal riffs, to uber proggy dual guitar parts, to black metal speedy passages and some ambient solo work as well. Also check out apolutrosis the even proggier release before this one.

Thanks to Bryan for the artist addition.
