It’s been nearly three years since darkwave death metal duo Aetherial have released new music and the latest epic has been worth the wait.
Soulless; with it’s accompanying video encapsulates the best of the bands previous two albums to create a six-minute wall of sound that is markedly different than both.
Featuring uplifting guitar lines and a sense of space, it’s a step away from the band’s usual furious chaos; instead, it’s a melodic slow burn, building in intensity and quiet rage.
Soulless is beautiful crushing devastation.
The new track explores the notion of growing discontentment in society and recognition that true freedom and strength cannot be found in anyone or anything other than yourself.
The video was shot and produced locally by Aetherial and incorporates an ethereal lighting backdrop. Soulless was recorded by Aetherial and produced, mixed and mastered by Asher Ally.
Soulless releases on the longest night, The Winter Solstice June 22 and is available from the Aetherial website and all the usual online suspects.
