Aethyr is active, and much work has been done regarding the album to follow this upcoming release. 2. Aethyr (Russia) Funeral/ Drone / Metal http://raig.ru/aethyr.asp Little is known about the secretive duo named AETHYR, aside from the fact that Mr.D and Mr.W are aliasing names of well-known professional artists who live and work somewhere in between Russia and Western Europe. One of them is a gifted musician who plays in various music bands, and the other is an acclaimed graphic and visual designer. Their self-described “heavy-drone ritual” musical voyage was presented to the world via the group’s 2009 “Mass” EP available on “Dirgenera Quadrivium MMIX” split-release.
AETHYR’s basic approach – heavy-droning distorted guitars, rasping vintage synthesizers, programmed metallic percussions, noisy feedback, and other sound effects – was laid down on their consequent recordings and revealed an ambition to create a punishing of black and doom metal, dark ambient and harsh industrial elements.
