Aes dana's music is to be enjoyed between the veils. 2) Aes Dana is a black and pagan metal band formed in 1994. At the very beginning they played a black metal tainted by some celtic influences. They afterwards turned towards true pagan metal, incorporating mainly Celtic folk melodies. 1994-1995: Aes Dana was created by Taliesin (guitar) and Amorgen (tin whistle and flutes). Vidar (vocals)and Storm quickly joined the band.
Then Aes Dana started to compose. 1996: A demo: ‘Chroniques du Crépuscule’ was recorded in december. The six tracks of this recording can be described as atmospheric black metal with celtic and medieval parts. The lyrics, written by Vidar, described the strange worlds where his erring ways lead him. Visions, chimera and legends of an ancient and fantastic kingdoms… 1997-1998: After strong desagreements with Storm, Amorgen left the band.
A new bassist and a second guitarist, Seth, joined Aes Dana. With this line-up Aes Dana began to play new songs in a more brutal way. After six months of silence, Amorgen came back to Aes Dana, and the band went back to his traditionnal influences. The new lyrics, in french, evokes pagan sagas. In the same way that the aes dana, the druids and bards of the ancient times, continually recreated their mythology, Aes Dana transfigures the myths with their visions and carries them with their music. The music born at that time was more violent and scared, ancient sonority and celtic dimension were revealed by the brutality of the new tracks. 1999: Storm left the band and was replaced by JuanJolocaust. 2000: At the end of april, Aes Dana entered studio to record its first MCD.
In the same month, Tilion (guitar) replaced Seth, who left friendly Aes Dana to devote himself to his bands of grindcore and brutal black (Antaeus and SCD). The band decides then to incorporat new traditional instruments to the music and Amorgen starts to mix the sonority of a medieval bombarde to the new tracks 2001: In june, Aes Dana signed with Sacral Production (Belenos, Hegemon) and recorded “La Chasse Sauvage” 2004: “Formors” was published. 2006 : Myrddyn is now the tin whistle player Read more on Last.fm.
