Aethellis has the soaring majesty of classic symphonic rock and incorporates a contemporary rhythmic feel along with asymmetrical meters and polytriad harmonies. And the occasionally catchy hook!
Aethellis signed a record deal with US Label Melodic Revolution Records for the release of the new album Northumbria which was released on December 20th 2011. Northumbria has a more eclectic, pyrotechnical, aggressive feel with plenty of vocal harmonies.The debut Aethellis album was spearheaded and recorded in 2002/2003 by classically trained keyboardist/vocalist/hack guitarist/Narcissist Ellsworth Hall and has many influences including rock, classical, synth pop, funk, jazz and even hip-hop. This either represents wide tastes or an inability to focus. He puts this genre wanderlust to good use in his soundtrack work with Ellsounds.
