Ok HeadBangers this song gets into the marrow, listen to that music and those vocals, did I mention hair, well yes you have to have the hair.

I love this song, paska, listen to those guitars, the drums, and wait for it slam up in your face.
Well my HeadBangers, what do you think? This five man band from the city of ancient Athens, Greece has really put it out there. See below an interesting fact, the birth place of democracy. None of us on this planet should ever forget that.
It is the birthplace of democracy and the heart of the Ancient Greek civilization. Athens is named after the Greek goddess Athena. She was the goddess of wisdom, war, and civilization and the patron of the city of Athens. Her shrine, the Parthenon, sits on top of a hill in the center of the city.
You all know how I feel about Melodic Death Metal, it is my number one favorite. But Aetherian, has made it darker, which I love. The growl vocals that Panos has are some of the deepest and most raw I have ever heard. They have toured with some the the greatest bands and held their own like the true warriors they are. I want to thank the guys for getting me the info I needed. When a band takes the time to help out a blogger they have my utmost respect. It shows they really care about their music and their fans. We fans are always interested in the story behind the bands we listen to, it makes them more real to us. After all Metal is family isn’t it….
Well my HeadBangers that’s it for this week, join me next week for another band and another song. Until then don’t stand to close the the fire if you can’t handle the burn……
