"Here we are, the entire album! I'm really glad to finally share it with everybody. Each song has its own universe and I have built 'Ankaa' as a walk through these different atmospheres, like a passage from the oppressive darkness to soothing clarity. I tried to keep the essence of the band but, in the same time, to bring it in places where we've never been.

"I injected a big part of myself in this opus and I hope you'll like it as much as we do! We want to warmly thank all those who participated in this album, a part of each of us is in here! Faustine Berardo, Sarah Layssac, Jon Howard & Björn Strid for all the additional vocals, Dirk Verbeuren for the drumming, Guillaume Dupré for the percussion, Nelson Leeroy for the mixing, Mobo (Conkrete Studio) for the mastering & Nicolas Senegas for the artwork. This album is dedicated to our friend Isilion."

The quartet will release "Ankaa" worldwide on April 22nd via Season Of Mist. The full track listing is as follows:

1. Nefas
2. Nihil Sine Causa

Eths Streams "Kumari Kandam"

Eths today streams another new track from upcoming album "Ankaa." Check out "Kumari Kandam" in the player below. Regarding the new track, Ethsguitarist Staif Bihl comments:

"I am glad to introduce a third new track from our forthcoming album. The lyrics of 'Kumari Kandam' were written by me with the help of my friend Faustine Berardo (La Nebuleuse D'Hima), who is also singing some parts of this song together with Sarah Layssac of Arkan. Kumari Kandam is a legendary continent that is said to be lying at the bottom of the sea south of the Indian subcontinent. My lyrics deal with human civilizations, and how they have vanished due to force of nature or just of their own doing – as a warning for future generations. Of course, this story also applies to our own civilization, which seems to be working as hard as possible to speed up its own downfall."

The quartet will release "Ankaa" worldwide on April 22nd. The band's new album marks the first full-length with new vocalist and "France has got Talent" sensation Rachel Aspe. The album's track listing is as follows:

1. Nefas
2. Nihil Sine Causa
3. Amaterasu
4. Seditio

The new album marks the first Eths release with new vocalist and "France Has Got Talent" sensation Rachel Aspe. Regarding the new track, guitarist Staif Bihl comments:

"I'm proud to present the first track of our brand new album entitled 'Ankaa' (the main star of the Phoenix constellation, which is therefore also called Alpha Phoenicis). This album is linked to the cosmos and the concept of rebirth for the band as well as personally.

"The first song to be revealed, 'Alnilam,' is part of a trilogy that closes the record. It accurately represents the idea of rebirth, which concerns everyone at some point. I wrote these lyrics during a turning point in my life. They represent the understanding that everything is in perpetual evolution, life is movement, and changing. I hope you will appreciate it as much as we do!"

Eths Splits With Vocalist

Season of Mist has issued the following announcement about female-fronted act Eths splitting with its vocalist: "We are sorry to announce that vocalist Candice is leaving French modern metal act ETHS. Below is the singer’s full statement on the subject. Season of Mist thank Candice for her work and dedication and wish her all the best for the future."

Candice also posted the following message online:

“It is with deep sorrow that I am informing you of my departure from the band. I am leaving four friends, two of which I even consider as brothers.

“I made this choice for personal and family reasons. It has been very hard to make this decision and to face the truth about my longings and a passion that is no longer strong enough to prevail. I can’t live unconditionally for music and its listeners anymore. Although the stage remains an outlet, I can’t live up to such a demanding job anymore. I have been living for music for the past 15 years and it has given me back so much, but there are now things I can’t sacrifice anymore and I need to take care of my family and stay with them.

“The band wants to go on, as the guys are still burning with a rage and a motivation that I don’t have anymore – you can’t cheat with things that have to come from your heart, body and soul. I am begging you to keep ETHS and the people who will replace me close to your hearts. This is the end of a chapter but you have to give a chance to novelty and change. I am definitely not irreplaceable. Until the band finds a permanent successor, two people will share the vocal duties and I asked my friend Virginie from KELLS (please be nice to her) to be one of them. Before that, I will carry out the remaining gigs until October to bid you farewell and enjoy my last moments on stage. This may surprise you and the last shows may be emotionally painful, but I prefer to talk about it publicly now. More...

Eths To Reissue Debut Album

Eths' new album "III" (reviewed here) is out now worldwide, except in North America where it will hit the stores on June 5th. Season of Mist has issued the following announcement about re-issuing the band's debut album:

"This is the perfect moment to make the band's debut full-length 'Sôma' available for their fast growing fan community once again. When 'Sôma' was originally released in 2004, it became an overnight success and catapulted the quintet from Marseilles not only on the covers of nearly every music magazine in France, but also outsold established metal-headliners like Children of Bodom or Cradle of Filth there.

"The pure raw and undiluted energy and anger bursting out from 'Sôma' and the stunning vocals of singer Candice make this album a milestone until today. Now re-issued with four previously unreleased exclusive bonus tracks from the 2003 demo sessions, this version of 'Sôma' is a must have for old and new fans!" More...
