Lots of demos recorded, a high-class self-released album (2015), festivals and shows with HammerFall, Vanden Plas, Rhapsody of Fire, Symphony X, Masterplan and Evergrey, Belgian melodic progressive metal band Ethernity has come a long way since brothers Julien and Nicolas Spreutels – as well as their cousin François Spreutels – started their musical project in 2000. All of them were still in their early teenager years at the time. They were quickly joined by two friends (guitarists Thomas Henry and Steve Widart) and played first instrumental gigs, while looking for a vocalist.

Ethenity found Julie Colin to be their vocalist and recorded a first demo in 2005.
It took until 2013 when the band, after recording demos, EPs and being busy with live shows, finished work on their first official album, titled Obscure Illusions. Joined by guest Tom S. Englund (Evergrey), Kelly Sundown Carpenter (Firewind, Beyond Twilight) and Mark Basile (DGM) on the title song, Ethernity proved that they have the quality to convince fans from prog to melodic metal. Obscure Illusions was unleashed to the world in March 2015.

2017 saw Ethernity prepare for their sophomore album. Again the band secured the services of highly acclaimed DGM guitarist Simone Mularoni for mix and mastering. The result is a powerful, heavy and strong album, which doesn’t lack melody. Etherrnity’s already excellent songwriting has matured and reaches a new level with this new piece of work. The album is titled The Human Race Extinction and delivers an apocalyptic concept story. At the same time, all fourteen tracks can stand on their own perfectly. Ethernity show a more modern twist to their sound and songwriting on this new piece of work, which reminds of greats such as Symphony X and Evergrey at times, but add a unique flavor to it.

Check out the video for an album track, “The Prototype” below.

Ethernity have many aces up their sleeve, one being the familiarity and chemistry in the band. All musicians are skilled musicians and songwriters. And then there’s Julie – the voice of Ethernity. Julie brings a different kind of female vocals to the table. Her raspy and powerful voice adds a special flavor to the band’s sound, but is by far not the only that makes Ethernity special. There’s much more to come from this highly talented band, be sure about that!

The Human Race Extinction will be available from September 14, 2018, via AFM Records.
