Aethera Live Demo

I've reviewed a lot of albums by small, up-and-coming metal bands. Sometimes I've been kind, sometimes I've been a dick, but I've always tried to be fair. Well, part of being fair is learning to take it as well as you can dish it out. To that end, I'm now offering everybody whose music I've ever bashed a chance to bash me right back. Today my band Aethera released our first live demo. We have other demos of unfinished songs and assorted experiments up on our Soundcloud, but this is the first full track played and recorded with a full band. So for those of you interested, this is what we sound like.

"Powershift" demo by Aethera


  1. I gave it one listen, and it sounds very groove metal to me. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I think it's an easy style to just fall into without intending to.

    1. It's at least partly intentional. We're all bringing different sensibilities to it, but a couple of our central songwriting members have a particularly strong focus on groove metal.

    2. Let me know whenever you get a proper release together.
