Aetherius biography
AETHERIUS is a progressive metal band from the United States formed after the new millenium. The lineup consists of RMB (vocals, guitars), STB (vocals, guitars, keyboards), DJG (bass), and GSM (vocals, drums). The members use their initials instead of their actual names which has created a sense of mystery around the band. When playing live, they tend to wear black clothing and aviator sunglasses which adds to this even more. Their style easily compares to any of the benchmark Prog-Metal bands of the 90s, but they add their own touch through incredible groove.

Their debut album "All That I Need to Survive" is primarily groove oriented, interweaving ballsy hard rock numbers with intensely epic pieces of greater length. The majority of the vocals were performed by AETHERIUS'S drummer GSM, while STB and RMB take the lead role only briefly. The vocals are very soulful for the genre and they have been known to use the phrase "Progressive Music with a Soul" to describe their music to outsiders. For a four-piece band, they sound humongous.

The thing that stands out the most about AETHERIUS, is that it seems they care more about writing emotional and expressive music rather than showing technical prowess, which is something quite alien to the genre. Highly recommended to anyone who needs a break from the prog-metal mold.

Review by Windhawk

3 stars Interesting but slightly flawed debut album by this US-based band.

The basic sound here is pretty much standard prog metal, heavy guitar riffs played in either riff patterns or drawn out chords; underscored by synths or piano; with relatively calm vocals for verses and more intense vocal performance in the chorus sections. However, the song structure and instrumental performances tends to be on the quirky side; often exploring disharmonies and fragmented rhythms. This gives the album a certain avant-garde atmosphere few other bands have.

Sadly, the songs as such aren't very strong, and the vocal performance is lacking a bit too often. Still, the band has talent and and a unique approach; and should be worth checking out for those who enjoy listening to a new, talented band that takes a slightly different approach to the prog metal genre.

Review by scarista

4 stars This is a superb progressive metal album. Very guitar driven and darkly melodic, it tends towards the heavier end of the genre. To my ear this album is musically reminiscent of the likes of Pelican and Isis, with production and technical flashes that are quite Rush-like.

There are no filler tracks on this album and The New Way Of Thinking is a blistering rocker without compare. Evolve Or Dissolve is positively sublime, features some very mellow piano which brought Dream Theater's Space-Dye Vest to mind and segues neatly into the pounding intro to In The Here And Now which deftly switches to a nice acoustic riff just when you think it's going to move up a gear.

An out of this world debut from a band who sound capable of very great things indeed.

As buckster099 says above "Rock On!"

Review by buckster099

4 stars An intriguing collection of progressive metal songs from a band on the rise. Shades of Dream Theatre, with a little Rush and Opeth thrown in for good measure. The CD requires a couple of spins for the music to click, but once it does, it sticks! "Evolve Or Dissolve" offers the listener a brief, startlingly simple, respite from dense, relentless, driving beat of "Minding The Hourglass", "6", "The New Way Of Thinking", and "Hold On To Your Dreams" (a suite???). "The New Way Of Thinking", in particular, really rocks, especially live. As you begin to savor the simplicity of "Evolve Or Dissolve", the band hits you with the powerful "In The Here And Now". The last song on the CD, "Rainbands", seems to suggest a more progressive (and less metal?) direction for the band in the future. I think the double bass drum mix is a little too heavy, and the vocals could be mixed up a little, but overall, a solid first outing.

Look for great things from this band...

Rock On!
