Now these two milestones of French Metal will be reissued with the addition of four previously unreleased bonus tracks. Details below."

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...

"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...

"Sensitivity, right tone, right grunt, breath, emotion, be exposed, introspection, re-do, re-do, tiredness, insomnia, re-do, feel emptiness, fall, get back up, get there, re-do, give everything, achieve the goal, just sing. The voice recordings can be such a pain but in the end the result is always worth it... This album kills."
