Folk music style sounds start off the ep and the music also brings in a decent amount of symphonic elements and they also mix in with the heavier sound which also introduces melodic guitar leads onto the recording and the riffs also use a great amount of melody and after awhile high pitched screams make their presence known and they add a touch of black metal.
Vocals also mix in a great amount of death metal growls and the music also brings back some of the 90's viking and melodic death metal styles and some of the drum beats also gives the music more of a tribal feeling and clean singing pagan vocals along with acoustic guitars can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and there is also a brief use of female vocals.
Aether plays a musical style that takes the more melodic forms of black and death metal and mixes it with viking, symphonic and folk metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover fantasy themes.
In my opinion Aether are a very great sounding melodic death metal band with touches of black, viking, symphonic and folk metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Tale of Fire". 8 out of 10.
