Death metal duo Shep Sheppard and Cassandra George may not ring a bell, but their band ÆTHERIAL should, especially if you’re deeply involved with Melbourne’s heavy music scene.
The pair have announced their sophomore album Nameless Horrors is set for release on October 23rd and to celebrate, a brand new song called ‘It’s Only Blood‘ has been unveiled for us all to check out. On the new release, Shep says:
“It’s a dark track, definitely one of my favourites from the record. Essentially it’s about being so brutally betrayed that it pushes one to give absolutely anything to exact revenge. It also looks at how we often surrender the very things that make us human for something perhaps trivial at the time, without weighing up the actual cost”
If that doesn’t get you over the line, the band has been described as:
Brutally fierce, crushing and relentless Death Metal who forge a uniquely dark and devastating sound which combine formidable vocals and intense guitar riffs. Lyrically, the pair explores the darkest recesses of the soul; exposing what is lurking behind the false reality of everyday life.
