Aethellis / About
Aethellis thrills listeners with its blend of catchy melodies, soaring vocal harmonies and intricate instrumental performances. It is vintage, yet modern, yet original progressive rock combining the soaring majesty of classic symphonic rock with a contemporary rhythmic feel in addition to funky guitar, pyrotechnical bass and drums.
The band has released two albums, the eponymously titled Aethellis, and Northumbria.
On "Northumbria" Aethellis has captured the very essence of the original prog/rock pioneers who soldiered on to help shape the changing face of progressive rock as it edged into the 80s.... The album is highly recommended to fans to symphonic rock, neo-progressive, and fusion. And anyone with a healthy respect for keyboard driven prog/rock. - read the full review by Joseph Shingler at ProgNaut.com
... undoubted talent is clear from tracks like "The Peace Path" with its bouncy and sunny jazz/funk-meets-Yes vibe, and "Sounds Good," which could sit next to any of Brand X's more commerical-minded offerings. - Gary Mackenzie for Prog Magazine, issue #47 (July 2, 2014)
