About Aethellis

Aethellis thrills listeners with its blend of catchy melodies, soaring vocal harmonies and intricate instrumental performances. It is vintage, yet modern, yet original progressive rock combining the soaring majesty of classic symphonic rock with a contemporary rhythmic feel in addition to funky guitar, pyrotechnical bass and drums.

The band has released two full albums, the eponymously titled Aethellis, and Northumbria as well as the acclaimed EP, A Home In Your Thoughts.

On "Northumbria" Aethellis has captured the very essence of the original prog/rock pioneers who soldiered on to help shape the changing face of progressive rock as it edged into the 80s.... The album is highly recommended to fans to symphonic rock, neo-progressive, and fusion. And anyone with a healthy respect for keyboard driven prog/rock. - read the full review by Joseph Shingler at link

... undoubted talent is clear from tracks like "The Peace Path" with its bouncy and sunny jazz/funk-meets-Yes vibe, and "Sounds Good," which could sit next to any of Brand X's more commerical-minded offerings. - Gary Mackenzie for Prog Magazine, issue #47 (July 2, 2014)

Still working on the new album!

Hello all! Just an update.

COVID-19 slowed down the process of recording the new Aethellis album but nearly all tracks have the basics recorded with just some overdubs needed before mixing and mastering. Some rough mixes have already been done.

We hope to have it completed before year's end and will post new material on Number One Music. We do have a preview mix of one tune, "Do Like I Do." It's a bit more pop-oriented than our usual material but the rest of the new album will have a mix of progressive rock, jazz fusion and pop.

We're still planning to video record a concert next year as well.

Thanks again for listening!!! Stay safe and healthy!

New Aethellis album in (hopefully) 2021

First thank you for being a subscriber of Aethellis. We were due to have our next album out last year but of course COVID-19 put a damper on that. That said, most of the new album has been drafted and we need the band members to meet in person to put down their final parts. Hopefully that will happen by mid-year and we're doing as much virtually as possible!

Thank you all for you support and kind words! A promo version of one of the songs that will appear the next album is available here at Number One Music. The final version will be slightly different but the promo version will give you the flavor..

Thank you again!!!
