Interviews: Aetherial


In this new occasion we have had the opportunity to interview the Deathcore/Melodic Death Metal band Aetherial, from Australia. Check out this band and give them a like on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1.Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?  

It was planned! We liked the concept of a place that is untouchable, a non tangible place that is always out of reach and exists above and beyond the world. A place that you can observe all that is going on below and see everything for what it truly is.  We have spelt Aetherial the original way, with the ‘Ae’ or ‘Æ’ like in the logo. You will be be able to find us online however with ‘Aetherial’, especially to pre-order our upcoming album - The Still Waters of Oblivion (!!), which will be released through our US label Imminence Records and our Australian label Truth Inc Records on November 10  

2.Why did you want to play this genre?  

We love brutal heavy riffs, epic harmonies, beautiful melodies and death vocals so  Melodic Death is our predominant genre. There are also no set rules with the music so there are influences from all the different types of music we like to listen to (stoner, black metal, goth etc) in there too! Keeps things interesting and unique.  

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?  

Haha yes you could say that! Aetherial was started by Shep and myself, we have played in several bands together, he’s also my b/f! \m/   

4. Each band member favourite bands? 

Cas: Incantation and Type O Negative 

Shep: Cannibal Corpse and D.O.S (Disciples of Satan) 

Aaron: Black Dahlia Murder 

Josh: Fear Factory  

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?  

Shep is the main songwriter and writes all of the music for Aetherial and I write all of the lyrics. It is easy for us to find inspiration from life, from our personal experiences in the world and our beliefs. Its important to be inquisitive and observant and draw inspiration from even the smallest things. For example, a single sunbeam shining through the window with specks of dusts illuminated in it, inspired the song “One of the Departed”. Inspiration is everywhere you just need to see it!   

6. Where was your last gig?  

Not our last gig, but a cool show we played a The Bendigo Hotel over here in Melbourne was a charity show to raise money for underprivileged kids. It was a full day of local bands and enough money was raised to send a number of kids to school for the year, which was awesome.  

7. Where would you like to act?  

We cant wait to hit Europe, Germany in particular! There are so many amazing festivals there we would love to perform at and the audiences are definitely a lot larger compared to over here!  

8. Whom would you like to feature with?  

Aside from our favourites! Heaven Shall Burn and Insominum, those guys put on such a good show!    

9. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?  

I used to get a bit nervous, but the more you shows you play the more confident you become - just remember everyone is there to see you!  

10. What bands have inspired you the most?  

Bands like Arch Enemy, Devil Driver, Whitechapel and Insomnium to name a few.  The riffs from bands like A Life Once Lost and Chimaira were awesome, full of groove but still so heavy. We've tried to capture those aspects in a number of our tracks. Heaven Shall Burn is a killer band too, there album Vito was a favourite album of ours, great vocals, well written songs with killer riffs, we really loved the artwork too - so much so that we asked their art designer, Patrick Wittstock to create ours!! haha!!  

11. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?  

Haha luckily we haven't had too many weird requests….yet 

12. What do you think of your fans?  

We love them!! And we appreciate their amazing support and enthusiasm for our music. We’re fortunate to have such dedicated fans! 

13. What do you think of our site? 

Awesome! its a brilliant place to discover new bands, Ive already found some new favs! Local bands appreciate people taking the time to learn about them and actually listen to the music that they work so hard on creating, Breathing the Core is a great place to do just that.
