Formed in 2009 with an aim to create a unique blend of Doom/Sludge/Ambience/Experimentalism. Heavy, distorted and punishing guitars blend seamlessly with haunting ambience created by vintage synthesizers, feedback and programmed effects.
On their first full-length since 2010's Messio, members Mr.D, Mr.W, Mr.S, Mr. Y create a hammering musical amalgam that runs the gamut from doom, sludge, ambience and a ferocious slashing fury that comes with brutal abruptness. An overwhelming atmosphere of anguish rigorously contrasts a cataclysmic fury raging against both the corporeal and ethereal. All is tenaciously rooted in a vast blackened atmosphere of occultism that hurls listeners into a boundless world: equal parts desolation, misery and rage.
Aethyr manage to condense the work they had accomplished during the previous years into one brutal Doom-punch to the musical mid-section.
