Aethellis has the soaring majesty of classic symphonic rock and incorporates a contemporary rhythmic feel.
Aethellis signs a record deal with US Label Melodic Revolution Records for the release of the new album Northumbria which was released on December 20th 2011. Northumbria has a more eclectic, pyrotechnical, aggressive feel with plenty of vocal harmonies.
The debut Aethellis album was spearheaded and recorded in 2002/2003 by classically trained keyboardist/vocalist/hack guitarist/Narcissist Ellsworth Hall and has many influences including rock, classical, synth pop, funk, jazz and even hip-hop. This either represents wide tastes or an inability to focus. He puts this genre wanderlust to good use in his soundtrack work with Ellsounds.
The first Aethellis album was listed from June '03 through March '04 in the Best Bands of the Week : "Indispensable work, highly recommendable..." - Progressive Rock and Progressive Metal E-Zine
The song "Hubris" remained in the Broadjam.com Progressive Rock Top 10 chart for 6 months, debuting at #1 on March 23, 2003. It also appeared in the Rock (#7), Maryland (#1) and Mid-Atlantic (#5) Top 10 charts. "Djibouti" garnered substantial airplay since the album's debut.
Album tracks, other originals and some classic rock/progressive rock covers are performed live.
