Ethersens biography
ETHERSENS is a progressive metal band from Midi-Pyrénées, France that was formed by Johan (guitar) and Mickael (guitar). They became a serious project when Steph (drums) decided to join the band in 2002.

In 2003, after several line-up changes, the band finally had a proper line-up when Fred (bass) and Stephan (vocals) joined the band. With everyone in the band having experience in other bands, they decided to focus on making an album more than beginning with demos or playing live.

The band recorded their debut album "Ordinary Days" during 2005/2006 that would be released on Scarlet Records in 2008.


ETHERSENS are innovative and highly emotional mixing progressive metal with the darker atmospheres of the genre. Recommended for fans of OPETH, NEVERMORE, PAIN OF SALVATION, DARK TRANQUILITY, and KATATONIA. They were approved by the Prog Metal Team and are highly recommended.

Your Wandering Ghost
Ethersens Experimental/Post Metal

Review by AtomicCrimsonRush
Special Collaborator Symphonic Team

3 stars The new Ethersens album "Your Wandering Ghost" is a moody dark journey into the despair and loss experienced by Laurent Mora, lead vocalist for the band. The personal trauma is conveyed in the way he sings with passion and at times wracked in pain, and this emotional edge enhances the overall experience. The guitars blaze with a ferocity at times particularly on assaults such as the speed blasts of Reflect. The concept of the album involves the tragedy of a relationship, conveyed in powerful songs such as This Is Where You and I Part Ways, Livin' Memory and Mourning Light, one of the highlights of the album.

There are some peaceful passages of mournful guitar such as the outro of Waking Disorder and in particular the opening cut of the album Two for One Mind. The atmosphere is rather bleak in these moments but causes one to reflect on what we have and we may lose along the way. I like the style of the band, in particular the way the raspy vocals integrate within a dirty guitar sound. The guitars of Mickaël André and Johan Bourrut ring out consistently and the music does not rely on killer riffs and lead guitar finesse, but an overall saturated sound that is raucous without becoming overbearing.

Perhaps the theme is better conveyed in the lyrics to the closing song, "To Live Is to Forget", "Everything comes to an end, so now we can't forgive, everything clings to a new start so now I can't forget, a lifetime is way too long." Overall the album delivers the type of Avant metal that has great appeal, without all the lead breaks and choppy cleverness, but rather is soaked in heartfelt emotion.
